'Cats Pain is Rhinos Gain
Posted by southstander on June 04 2010 - 05:55:44

Crazy Frog
When we visited Belle Vue in early season February Wakefield were top of the table looking down on a Rhinos side who were to go on to their worst start to a Superleague season since 1996.

On that night the home side won comfortably but a month ago, at Murrayfield Magic, the Rhinos snatched a last gasp winner to climb above the Wildcats in the table. Since the Scotland sojourn Leeds are unbeaten, and it is odds-on that will still be the case after tonights final whistle.

We preview the game here...

After a two game enforced absence Brent Webb will return to the Rhinos starting thirteen which could well mean no place on the field for last weeks Challenge Cup hero Lee Smith. Keith Senior survived a mid-week visit to Red Hall after his inadvertant kung-fu kick on Joel Tomkins, but Ali Lauiti'iti remains on the 'injured' list alongside Rob Burrow and Kallum Watkins. Luke Burgess has been replaced in the ninteen by Jay Pitts although given the rest of the ninteen it is unlikely that he will make the match squad.

With a nineteen of; Webb, Donald, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Sinfield, Diskin, Eastwood, Bailey, Kirke, Ablett, Pitts, Clarkson, and Smith, I would expect Pitts and Clarkson to be the two to miss out and we'll see the novelty of a back sitting on the Rhinos bench at eight o'clock rather than the full complement of forwards.

The crazy 'finger tapping' frog has a side bolstered by new signing Charlie Leaeno and he also will be relieved to see the return of Glenn Morrison and Ben Jeffries, who have both missed recent games through injury. Quite why his side have started making a habit of losing is a bit of a mystery but losses to sides below them in the table may lend some credance to the rumours that this will be his last season at the helm.

His ninteen is; Blaymire, Blanch, Gleeson, George, Jeffries, Korkidas, Ferguson, Morrison, Demetriou, Obst, Johnson, Henderson, Murphy, King, Leo-Latu, Cooke, Moore, Kirmond, and Leaeno. A side which should have enough fire-power to give us a run for our money.

Three 'Cats to watch;




The Wildcats and Rhinos tussle for the third time this season with honours currently even. The Round three encounter was a comfortable 28-18 win for the 'Cats but the Rhinos stole the points at Murrayfield with a seventy-sixth minute winner in the 34-30 thriller.

The last time that the Wildcats visited Headingley was in February 2009 when Leeds secured a comfortable 18-04 win, keeping the visitors from breaking our line. Prediction
Rhinos 30 12 Wildcats

I can only really see one outcome to this game as an in-form Rhinos take on a side who are in free-fall and hanging on to the top eight by their fingernails. I'd like a comprehensive annihilation but suspect that we'll do just enough to ease to the two points.

There is a beautiful night forecast with the temperature unlikely to drop below twenty degrees until after kick-off. This is what summer rugby is all about.

See you there and enjoy the game.
