rhinoms Superleague XV Previews - Round 18
Posted by southstander on June 17 2010 - 16:26:10

by rhinoms

All three of our tipsters scored more than six points last week, but still we collectively didn't win the bet.

Can we fare better this week?

Read more here....

Here are my thoughts on this weeks fixtures.

DRAGONS v. WILDCATS

Both teams go into this fixture lacking confidence and form. The home team put in a decent shift mid-week against the Tiggers and matched them try for try, so that should give them a lift. For "twitchy" Kear and his puddy cats they are looking to bounce back from another good hiding and prove it's not only the Rhinos encounters they get up for.

It's a tough one to call Walters will want some wins asap to build momentum and confidence before the CC in august and Wakey will be desperate to rekindle their top 8 dreams.

I actually think that Wakey are shot and the Dragons will scrape a morale boosting 2 points.

BULLS v. WOLVES

Another good hiding in prospect for the Grattan land fill residents. The hosts are further hindered by the news that big money investment Orford is out for season with a shoulder injury (either that or he's crying for Mummy and wants to go home).

The visitors are still finding wins and even if their M.O.M last week Ian smith isn't present they should have too much for the host who's defence resembles an Italian infantry brigade.

More woe for hosts and their glutton for punishment few.

GIANTS v. FC

A real battle royal in prospect at the Galpharm both teams see themselves as "contenders" and this should be one of the games of the weekend. The hosts did well in defeat last week against the scousers but lost their no.1 back-rower in Fa'alongo so he'll take some replacing.

The visitors sail into town on the back of some decent wins and Stig pulling the strings they are looking ok although they've hardly beaten any of the big guns.

I expect the hosts to have too much up front for the coach popeye and his sponge bob cast.

REDS v. TIGERS

This is a battle of the also rans across the border. Coach McRae will be confident his team can take the spoils against an average Tigger team.

The visitors arrive after scraping a win against the fireless Dragons but there are doubts over Shentons fitness and without a recognized seven they are struggling.

I think the Reds will have too much for mMttersons hillbillies and no "cotton eye joe" to be sung on the wagon trail home.

KR v. QUINS

Both teams go into this fixture on the back of defeats. For the hosts they came up short against a Smith inspired Wire outfit whilst the rainbow brights were getting a beating from the decimated Rhinos and their "young guns".

Coach Morgan will be hoping his team keep their discipline this week even though they had some shocking calls from the whistle blower and he could yet be down a few quid as a result of his outburst.

For the Quins they will be hoping the defeat against the champs is just a blip and they can get back to winning ways although I think they'll come up short.

Robins by 7.

RHINOS v. CRUSADERS

The Champs return to HQ after avoiding a huge banana skin last week. This week Nobbys mis-fit and discarded taffs are in town and we all know he'll have then fired up for the challenge.

The visitors are arriving on the back of a big win against the Bradford laughing stock but traveling to HQ is a different proposition. The Mighty Champs will welcome back a host of quality and although not at full strength they should put on a show and dispatch the visitors.

Rhinos by 22.

WARRIORS v. SAINTS

A big derby match to wrap up the weekend and these two will be desperate to take the points.

For the Pies they will be hoping to cement top spot and get another win against their bitter rivals.

For Cunningham and his Brookside extras they will be looking to avenge their defeat at KR earlier in the year and bring the Pie faithful back to earth. A tough game in prospect and hard to call but Saints are missing some quality and I think the spoiling tactics of the pies will be too much.
