Well we start a new month with the SL road show at Murryfield for the "Magic" weekend.|
Here are my thoughts on the upcoming fixtures.
FC v. QUINS
Agars battered squad got back to winning ways last week in a grind fest
against Kears mange riddled puddy cats.
This week they face a rejuvenated Quinns outfit who travel on the back of a
magnificent win at the pie-dome.
With their few quality players returning and a turn round in fortune (apart
from the horrific injury sustained by Bjb) McDermotts rainbow brights will
be oozing confidence and looking for another brill win.
The airlie birds will be looking to build on whitings efforts last week but
still will be left without enough bait to get the 2 points in my opinion.

BULLS v. CRUSADERS
Well, what can I say other than McBanana and the Odslum faithful are on a
After another win against the Robins which the likes of Whitehead and
Donaldson underlined their SL credentials things are looking up for Age
concern Menzies and his Manly crew.
However Nobbys plastic taffs will have to improve to get anywhere near a
win and I think it will prove to be too big a task this week.

REDS v. WOLVES
After another defeat the Jekyll and Hyde Reds face an in form Wire team who
are going from win to win at the top of the league.
For McRae and his inconsistent new boys it's a challenge way too hard for
them to overcome in my opinion and the best they can hope for is a Ref who
has the nuts to bin the likes of Morley and Co if they transgress.
Even with divine intervention it's a Wire win all the way and more "year of
the Wolf" statements to be flying around the Sky box at least until their
beloved Pies and Saints are on!

RHINOS v. WILDCATS
After a very disappointing showing at KR last week Bluey must lift the
troops spirits in the 1st of our "put the record straight" fixtures.
Poor discipline,ball retention and all round mind set really did us no
favors last week so I expect the "backlash" to begin against John Kears
What's happened to Wakey?
Well it certainly looks like they got the raw deal in the "problem child"
merry-go-round and they are struggling for any cohesion.
Their go forward has been reduced massively since Tronc realised what he'd
done when signing and without actually seeing the place.
This week I expect a cup like performance from our Blue 'n' Amber champions.

WARRIORS v. GIANTS
This has the potential to be the game of the weekend in my view.
The invincibles at the pie-dome have had their bubble burst last week and
the Giants are looking to build round their new general "Kenny rogers".
Two tough uncompromising packs but I think the galpharm boys shade it just.
Some good match ups this week especially in the respective packs and a word
of warning to Stuart"and sleep" Fielden don't cock thoses guns unless yer
ready to fire because messrs Mason and Griffin love a tear up.

SAINTS v. KR
The Shell suited heroes of KR go into this one back of whats been described
as Potters greatest "trick!" after a dominating win against the hapless
Although they are blighted by injury they have shown to have enough quality
and desire to get the job done in the SL.
This week the "found out" Robins are the opposition and they have a
reasonable record against their foes this week but they are doing it tough
at the moment and are getting beat quite regularly.
A cruise for the Scousers this week.

TIGERS v. DRAGONS
Well after a week of protests, rumours of squad unrest and a poor exit from
the cup the wrong turn faithful were cheered by a rare home win.
The "cotton eye joe" CD was back in favour and high 6's were the order of
the day and the talk was of an onward and upward nature amongst the yokels.
For Walters and his "les enfants" they are going from 1 defeat to another
and they show no signs of stopping the rot.
This could be a make or break fixture for Walters to retain his job but I
can't see his fireless team responding.
