Will Murrayfield be Magical?
Posted by southstander on April 30 2010 - 09:47:27

When we travelled to Belle Vue to play the Wildcats in our third game of the season they were sitting top of Superleague but since then they have experienced for almost as indifferent as the Rhinos. This has seen them plummet down to eighth, just a point above the underperforming Champions.

This weekend the two meet for saturdays final game at Murrayfield Magic, and the Rhinos can get sweet revenge by pushing the 'Cats out of the eight.

We preview the game here...

Brent Webb and Ali Lauiti'iti are both named for the trip to Edinburgh after missing out through injury last week. Ryan Bailey also travels despite picking up an injury against Saints and Chris Clarkson gets a recall for the first time since playing in the loss to the Warriors.

Leeds walking wounded are all 'on the mend' and with the exception of Kallum Watkins should all figure over the next month or so. Donald and Eastwood will add massively once we can get them back.

As we approach the season half-way stage the lads really need to get their season started or it will soon be the seasons end and we may even be outside the eight. Bluey names a squad of; Webb, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauiti'iti, Sinfield, Diskin, Bailey, Kirke, Burgess, Ambler, Clarkson, and Smith.

The Wildcats are without Daryl Millard, missing his first game of the season, and Paul Cooke who is suffering from a minor hamstring problem. Obst, Morton and Blanch will all need an eye keeping on them but Millard, as Wakefields top try-scorer, will be a big loss.

Wakefield haven't won a game since the 2nd April and have suffered the embarrassment of a cup exit at the hands of the Harlequins, as well as a loss at home to the Crusaders. John Kear would be pulling out his hair, if he had any. The Wildcats nineteen is; Blanch, Gleeson, George, Jeffries, Korkidas, Ferguson, Demetriou, Obst, Bibb, Johnson, Henderson, Murphy, King, Leo-Latu, Morton, Davey, Moore, Gledhill, and Kirmond.

Three 'Cats to watch;




It is painful to remember the way that the Wildcats won their Cup Final back at the start of the season. That was also a day when it dawned upon the Rhinos faithful that this wasn't going to be a normal season of leading from the front.

On that day it was the now departed Danny Brough who murdered us, picking up sixteen points in the 18-28 defeat. Gleeson, Millard and Jeffries also picked up tries in the Valentines Day massacre.

That said, the Wildcats have only beaten us in four of twenty-eight attempts in the Superleague era and their downturn in form, coupled with our returning players should signal a Rhinos win. Prediction
Wildcats 18 30 Rhinos

The Edinburgh saturday forcast is for rain during the afternoon clearing towards early evening. That means that we could be playing in a mud bath but without rain falling. I'm not sure that the conditions overhead will be as important as those under foot.

The Predicitions Prize Money thread for sponsors 'bet' is now on and would net the prize fund 89.18. The bookies have given the Wildcats an eighteen point start on the handicapping but I think that it will be closer than that.

Travel safe and enjoy the game.
