rhinoms Superleague XV Previews - Round 16
Posted by southstander on June 02 2010 - 19:17:52

After a break for CC quarter finals SL is back and here are rhinoms thoughts on this weeks fixtures which see the Rhinos entertain Wakefield, the Saints travel to Hull and Warrington visit the Reds.

How will our interpid score guessers fare this week?

Read more here....

Here we go.


The Champs welcome John "twitching" Kear and his puddy cats to HQ this week. We start June facing a team we've had problems with this year a defeat away and a last minute get out of jail free score at Murryfield hasn't disguised the Wakey effort against us.

The Rhinos could well be a little jaded this week after a very tough May and dependent on the RFL lottery of disciplinary panels could be a centre light also.

As for our visitors they will be revitalized by the week off and JK will have them fired up for the challenge at HQ.

Despite his finger twitching like a coalition Mp's expenses claim the Rhinos should have too much for the mange ridden puddy cats.

The KC welcomes the scouse pretenders this week and Stig will be hoping to inspire the hosts to another win against his former carers.

The trophy-less visitors arrive with an injury ruling out talisman and 'le brat' Eastmond, but they should still have enough in the tank to see off the challenge of Cap'n birds eye and co.

A spirited effort by Stig and his "sponge bob" cast but a stolen win for the Saints.

The hosts are going for a remarkable three wins in a row after seeing off the enfants terrible, and pretenders to the throne, Saints, in their last 2 games. The Wolves are this weeks visitors and have dished out some good hidings to the Reds recently and TS was far from impressed with his team even though they won at Odslum last time out.

The hosts will be confident after their recent form and the fact that Talisman Holdsworth has agreed a new deal however I feel this won't be enough.

Expect an improved effort from the Reds in terms of score but to no avail. Wire by 14.

The Deliverance boys visit the pie-dome this week hoping to banjo the hosts and get the two points.

The hosts will be looking to bounce back after been "out pied" by the mighty Rhinos in a tough encounter at HQ last time out. The tiggers are still without a recognized SL 7 after letting old man Sherwin leave and that's where they'll struggle here.

Rangi chase is an exciting player and match winner on his day but will not be able to carry his team in this one and the rest aren't good enough. The pies will revert to type and look to bully and spoil their way to the two points and if they don't young S.Tompkins will cwy and cwy and cwy.

Oh, and a word of warning for the Cas squad if you score look out for the low flying boxes of sweets, lighters and coins.

A battle of the hammered this week at The Stoop last time out both teams got a good old fashioned tonking.

This week the hosts will be looking to defend a lot better than last time when they shipped 50+ against the puddy cats and the plastic taffs concede 40+ also.

Could be quite an interesting match up this with both sides having reasonable players and possible match winners. I think Brian Mc will have used the week off to remind his team of his Royal Marine background and beasted them, so expect the Leeks to be well cooked.

The Grattan land fill plays host to the "new major force" in SL don't laugh that's what their fans were calling themselves a few weeks ago when they'd scraped a few wins together.

Oh how the mighty have fallen this really is a battle of the "has beens and never will be's" but an intriguing encounter all the same. The Manly "Mafia" are doing ok but hardly setting the SL alight and even Orford can't polish a t#*d.

The hosts will be going all out to send McBanana away with a GF appearance so expect him to take up his England duties early.

As for the visitors big "Shirley" Crabtree and past it man of steel will be looking for a morale boosting win to revitalize their season and after an energy sapping defeat last week for the dulls I expect Browns men to get the spoils.

The fireless Dragons are this weeks challenge for the Robins. This could be an entertaining match with Morgans men looking to continue their upturn in form and the Dragons coming off the back of a crushing win over Batley at mount pleasant last time out.

The Dragons really are awful this year despite some quality signings and coach Walters' hopes of returning home after a decent season will be finally put to bed this week.
