Cod'eads First Course
Posted by southstander on April 09 2010 - 16:06:22

First of Two
The special treat of a Sunday afternoon game at headquarters as we get the first course of a double fishy feast against the cod'eads.

The Rhinos and Hull FC will meet each other twice in the space of six days, after being drawn against each other in round four of the Carnegie Challenge Cup, but first we have the all important Superleague encounter as the Rhinos try and break into the top eight.

We preview the game here...

So far this season Leeds have scored more game points than the visitors and conceded less but are still languishing four places below them in Superleague XV. FC got a hammering on Monday when the high-flying Wolves were the visitors to the KC stadium while the Rhinos were getting a first win in five games in Perpignan. Stats like that do make you wonder why the BBC have picked the game on the 17th as the main TV match.

Bluey has named an unchanged nineteen from that which made the trip to Perpignan and I'd expect that Buderus will be back in the seventeen with Bush and Ambler or Burgess the one to miss out. The nineteen is; Webb, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Jones-Buchanan, Lauiti'iti, Sinfield, Diskin, Bailey, Kirke, Ablett, Ambler, Bush, Smith, and Burgess. FC are without talisman Sean Long who must be getting close to being the most fragile player in Superleague as an ankle injury keeps him out of Sundays match, but don't be surprised to see him when we go to the KC on the 17th.

Richard Agar brings a side containing two ex-Rhinos in Dowes and Tansey. The Hull ninteen is; Berrigan, T. Briscoe, Burnett, Cusack, Dowes, Fitzgibbon, Hall, Horne, Houghton, Lauaki, Manu, Moa, O'Meley, Radford, Tansey, Turner, Washbrook, Whiting, and Yeaman.

Three Airlie Birds to watch;




In their last three games FC have lost to the Wolves and the Reds and just scrambled a sin over neighbours KR. They are also one of the sides to lose this season against the Crusaders, although that is a growing list of scalps for Nobbys side. Leeds managed three points over the Easter weekend when many of us feared that we could emerge pointless from the holiday period. Could the Rhinos season finally be on the mend as FC's starts to dive? Sunday will give us the answers.

FC got a rugby lesson when they visited Headingley in Superleague XIV when the Rhinos won by thirty points. It was a less convincing win at the KC but at 43-30 we could have no complaints. If you ignore last seasons JJB Testimonial loss at Headingley then it is the 7th September 2007 since we last lost, by 6-17 against the cod'eads. Prediction
Rhinos 24 18 Hull FC

The forecast is that the current dry sunny weather will continue through until late next week so hopefully the Headingley turf will be drier and greener by Sunday giving us chance to play our own game rather than get bogged down in the quagmire.

The Predicitions Prize Money thread for sponsors 'bet' is now on and would net the prize fund over 85.

Enjoy the game.
