rhinoms Superleague XV Preview - Round 5
Posted by southstander on March 04 2010 - 16:54:07

New Tipster
by rhinoms

We've had an early season departure. Tad has hung up his predicting boots and made way for our new super tipster rhinoms.

Based on his first week with the poisoned pen it looks like 'the king is dead, long live the king'. See what you think.

There are just 25 shares left to take part for the predictions cash prize - so get yours now.

Firstly I'd like to thank Tad for doing such a good job of the reviews before deciding to hang up his keyboard and if I can be half as good then that'll do me.

Here are my thoughts on Round 5 of Super League XV;


A tough fixture for Mcbanana and his Manly rejects.

The Pies are on a roll and even though they were outplayed at times against a good Wire outfit on their last away day, they showed a good quality of digging in and finishing their chances when they arose.

As for the Bulls they really haven't clicked yet and already there's a great deal of weight on Orfords shoulders.

More woe for the Odsal few imo.

I see a tough encounter at the KC, the Airlie Birds looked really tough and took their chances well when beating Saints a few weeks back but have since lost to the Crusaders, and although they dispatched Quins without any problems it's hard to gauge if they are the "real deal" this year. How many games they get out of "Stig" Long could well determine how successful they eventually are.

Cas on the other hand have been average at best since winning their cup final at HQ. They were out-played by a mis-firing bulls outfit and blew a good lead twice against HKR at home. Losing Owen is a big blow to them, and although young Ainscough scored a hat-trick he's as likely to cost one as well.

Close but no cigar for the tiggers.

Hull by 10.

The lads are back on "home soil" (literally) this week after a sterling effort in defeat to the Storm.

They defended like Trojans and started to like they were getting their "Mojo" back, and although it was gutting to lose there's plenty to build on and kick on for the rest of the season.

Missing Sinny, Ablett and Scotty D is a blow but we have depth within this squad to cope and now's the time to step it up. As for Brian Mc's team other than looking like a packet of refreshers last week there were no other bright spots for them. A small squad which is already threadbare with absentees and lacking real quality.

As a side issue seeing how young Bjb gets on against his employers will be interesting but I expect another long trip down the M1 with their behinds slapped.

Nothing mighty about the Quins this week. Rhinos by 20.

A real basement battle at The Willows this week a Reds outfit who seem to be improving every week whilst the Frenchman stutter from one beating to the next. Walters' men really are missing the mercurial Bosc and the un-replaced Bird.

As for McRaes boys they did OK at HQ, went well against the Bulls by all accounts, if they have everyone fit this could be their 1st home win of the year.

More travel sickness for Catalans.

Should be a good game at Belle Vue as both teams have started with confidence and have proved tough to beat.

For the home team the platform laid by Tronc, Obst and co. will be vital for Brough to impose his talents on this match and I expect them to be well matched upfront by this no-nonsense Giants pack.

A real tough one to call and it will come down to whichever HB pairing can take advantage of the respective packs efforts and take the few chances available.

They might be Giants but I think the Wildcats will show their claws just.

A game that the Robins seem to always perform in when they welcome Concrete boots Wellens and his men to Craven Park, although this year they really haven't got going. A close win away at Cas couldn't hide their problems or dis-jointed efforts thus far though they will welcome the addition of Clinton to a pack lacking depth.

I expect Saints to win here after their surprising home defeat to Hull they have bounced back and showed they are still a good side when they were 12 down early last week against a flying Wakey outfit.

Home misery for Morgans men.

Tony Smith is stamping his mark all over the big spending Wire out-fit and the employment of OJ's Lawyer when messrs Morley and Carvell transgress was a master stroke.

The taffys have shown a lot more than people expected thus far, me included, and Nobby is having an impact on his rag tag outfit of mis-fits and the unloved.

This is an away fixture too tough for the Wrexham men and I expect them to come away with nothing.
