Rhinos to Feast on Robins
Posted by southstander on March 19 2010 - 08:21:00

Seven takes on nine at Headingley tonight as Justin Morgan brings his Robins down the M62 for a match which both sides need to win to keep within sight of the leading pack.

With the Rhinos treatment room resembling a scene from casualty (with slightly less blood) the game could be a tough ask as we look to chalk up our first win of the season against a team outside the bottom four.

We preview the game here...

Kallum Watkins is the latest addition to a Rhinos injury list which seems to show no sign of shortening any time soon. The good news is that Kevin Sinfield is back in contention. Named in the nineteen last week I understand that there was only a 25% chance he'd play and while the odds have improved this week there is every chance that it will be next fridays trip to Wigan before he is back in the seventeen.

Rhinos Mike Coady is in the nineteen for the first time and has a good chance of making his Superleague debut but will have to fight off the challenge of Tom Bush as the two of them look to fill Kallums boots.

Bluey has named his nineteen as: Webb, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauiti'iti, Sinfield, Diskin, Bailey, Kirke, Burgess, Pitts, Coady, and Bush. To be honest we are starting to look a bit threadbare.

The Robins have had a patchy start to the season. They've beaten the Saints at home but lost to Huddersfield, Wakefield and Wigan. Ex-Rhinos Chaz I'Anson and Jason Netherton are back in contention after missing last weeks home defeat against the Wildcats. A third player who practiced his trade in Blue & Amber, Scott Murrell, is likely to start at hooker for the visitors.

Morgan names his nineteen as: Briscoe, Fox, Welham, Webster, Colbon, I'Anson, Dobson, Vella, Murrell, Clinton, Newton, Lovegrove, Galea, Watts, Fisher, Wheeldon, Cockayne, Netherton, and Hodgson.

Three Robins to watch;




Two sides who are currently below par collide at Headingley with a big two points up for grabs. Leeds are heading into a tough Easter period with a trip to Wigan, home game against the Bulls and then the long haul to the south of France. We'd hope for four points out of the six up for grabs but a loss tonight and confidence will be in tatters.

Leeds won all three games against KR last season including the first play-off by a massive 44-08. KR haven't beaten us at Headingley since their entry into the top flight in 2007 and have only one win under their belt against us, the 22-20 shock win at Craven Park back in March 2007.

So far this year Leeds have scored sixty points more than KR and have conceeded fifty-one less but the erratic recent form of both sides means that this game tonight is a lottery and could go either way by fairly big scores. Prediction
Rhinos 36 18 KR

I've got everything crossed for a Rhinos win and the crucial two points and I am predicting that it will be by a good margin but I have a nagging doubt that we may be leaving Headingley disappointed at the end of the night.

It's seems that the weather has finally turned the corner with the forecast of reasonable temperatures and little chance of rain for the match.

The Predicitions Prize Money thread for sponsors 'bet' is now on and would net the prize fund over 76. The bookies have given KR a fourteen point start on the handicaps which to me sounds pretty good. I hope that we can live up to their expectations.

See you there and enjoy the game.
