rhinoms Superleague XV Previews - Round 23
Posted by southstander on July 22 2010 - 07:15:26

by rhinoms

Just five regular weekly rounds remain in Superleague XV and nothing is yet settled, except the Bulls inability to win a game.

With Number Two tucked in just behind the predictions competition leader, and SouthStander.com just outside the play-off places it is rhinoms who is playing catch-up as our threesome head towards the end of their season.

As we near the climax of the league fixtures the race for play-off places hots up. Here are my views on this weeks fixtures.

FC v. WARRIORS

The Leaders visit the Cod arena this week and expect a tough match.

The hosts will be boosted by leaving their city rivals battered and without sole. The Pies arrive having been short of gravy to get the job done against a determined Wire.

A real humdinger in prospect and the hosts will be desperate to tighten their grip on 4th whilst the pies will want to bounce back and take one step nearer to the Hub-cap.

A spirited effort by Birds eye Agars mob but not enough to get the spoils.

DRAGONS v. WOLVES

Another tough game for the hosts who really have nothing to play for in SL other than selection for the semi-final and this is a chance for them to prove they can match their opponents.

For the visitors they will arrive relieved in the knowledge they've "exorcised" the demon of beating one of the "big 3".

The hosts also will be boosted by the return of 2 "enfants terrible" who were suspended last time out for breaching club discipline. It's not an easy away trip but I expect it to be comfortable for TS and his pack.

KR v. BULLS

The Robins will be looking to bounce straight back to winning ways after losing the Cod civil war at the KC. Luckily this week they have the leagues other whipping boys in the shape of the Bulls.

St Hillaire will be desperate for a positive result this week but with injuries and average players it's another defeat. More joy for the Robins and a return to winning ways for the hosts.

CRUSADERS v. TIGERS

The wagon train rolls into wrexham this week on the back of a serious hoe down after hammering their bitter neighbours and future "room mates".

The hosts will be in good spirits after a decent away win last time out.

A good game in prospect with both still having top 8 aspirations and the pressure will also be on. On paper Cas SHOULD win this but as we've seen ourselves this year Nobby is building a tough team not to be under-estimated. I think the hosts will have enough to get the points this week and burst the tiggers bubble.

Crusaders by 8.

REDS v. RHINOS

A real potential banana skin for the champs this week as they take on a confident Reds out-fit who have a couple of familiar faces in their line up.

Messrs Broughton and Gibson will be hoping to put one over on their former employers and no doubt the Rhinos will be aware of this. Salford were good value for their win last week at the Gratten land fill and young Broughton certainly got the headlines and raised more debate.

This week the Champs will look to build on their last gasp win over the Giants and lay a marker down whilst they need to improve their defence.

A couple of "shoot outs" to watch out for in the backs with Gibson and Broughton looking to show Delaney and Donald they should be in their places.

A hard game but I expect the Rhinos to step up and with reinforcements arriving out of the treatment room having too much for the hosts.

Rhinos by 14.

GIANTS v. QUINS

This week the Giants host Brian Mc's Quinns who have nothing other than pride to play for which in my opinion makes them dangerous. The Giants will be smarting after losing out at the death last week despite Thaler and his in goal judges best efforts I expect the Giants pack to get the roll on and lay a solid platform for the win.

This could prove a tougher game for the hosts than many expect but I just don't think the refreshers have enough.

WILDCATS v SAINTS

John Kear is desperate for his team to show some decent form and push for the eight but consistency really is a big problem for the puddy cats.

This week they face the Saints and these games are usually pretty good and hard fought.

Wakey have no problems "getting up" for the bigger teams but will that be enough this week. I don't think so, and to me the hosts look "gone" for the season.

Saints by 12.
