Rhinos Hunting Wolves Win
Posted by southstander on May 14 2010 - 08:33:38

Plotting Downfall
Once again the Rhinos figure in the game of the weekend as the Champions welcome Tony Smith and his Warrington Wolves.

Despite the comparative league positions my bookies (Bet365) have made the Rhinos slight favourites for the game with the Wolves getting a two point start on the coupon. What do they know that we don't?

Most Leeds fans will be going tonight with an expectation of defeat, but hoping against hope for a victory.

We preview the game here...

The Rhinos bring back the stars that were rested last week for the visit of the Panthers. McGuire, Diskin, JJB, Bailey and Ablett are all in Blueys nineteen as he names the strongest squad that he can from his injury ravaged dressing room. The notable absentees are Rob Burrow, out for months and Ali Lauiti'iti who is also injured.

Lee Smith being included is a relief after he suffered a head injury early on last week. The squad in full is; Webb, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Sinfield, Diskin, Eastwood, Bailey, Kirke, Ablett, Burgess, Ambler, Clarkson, and Smith.

Tony Smiths side are full of hope and ambition and playing like they a team posessed, except against the teams where it matters. Fresh from their massive cup win over an increasingly disheveled looking Giants outfit, the only notable absentee is Richie Myler who has a minor knee injury.

Smiths ninteen; L. Anderson, V. Anderson, Atkins, Bridge, Briers, Cooper, Grix, Harrison, Hicks, Higham, King, Mathers, Monaghan, Morley, Riley, Solomona, Westwood, Williams, and Wood.

After coaching the losing side twice last season, this is Smiths greatest opportunity to get one over on his previous employers.

Three Wolves to watch;




The Rhinos emerged victorious from both games against the Wolves last season. The last game was the 24-22 win at Headingley on the 1st August last year. We also won the away game at the Halliwell-Jones, again by a narrow margin, this time of 20-14.

The last time that Warrington beat us was the 3rd August 2008, on that occasion by 12-22 in Warrington and it was the play-offs in 2006 that the Wolves last won a game at Headingley, on that occasion by 17-18. Prediction
Rhinos 16 32 Wolves

I've gone for a Rhinos loss, with a heavy heart, in the hope that I am badly wrong. I'm not sure that we'll get within a dozen points of them, and we could be in for a bit of a hiding. Hopefully they will still be on a high from last week and be thinking that they are invincible.

It's going to be cold, cold, cold for tonights game, so get yourself wrapped up well.

Don't forget your prediction. Enjoy the game and keep everything crossed for a Rhinos win.
