Reds see Blue
Posted by southstander on July 23 2010 - 14:39:42

A sunny sunday afternoon at The Willows will make a nice change from the conditions the last time these two met at a frozen Headlingley wasteland in Round four.

Both sides were suffering from the early season blues and struggling to get some league points under their belts. The Reds ran us close that day but we managed a 22-10 win.

With Hull FC taking on Wigan tonight a win on Sunday may be enough to propel us into the top four while a loss for the home side will almost certainly end their slim top eight dreams.

We preview the game here...

The bad news is that despite some optimism earlier in the week, Rob Burrow has not made it into the nineteen named for sundays visit to Salford. The great news is that Brent Webb is back in the reckoning though if past practice is to continue his inclusion in no way means that he'll make the final seventeen.

With Buderus, Burgess, Leuluai and Lauiti'iti all making it through last weeks tough game against the Giants without further aggrevation to their injuries it means that we are only still waiting on Burrow, Diskin, Eastwood and the longer term injured Watkins. Perhaps we'll be lucky and be back to near full strength for the play-offs.

Blueys ninteen is; Webb, Donald, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Leuluai, Buderus, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauiti'iti, Sinfield, Bailey, Kirke, Ablett, Burgess, McShane, Clarkson, and Smith.

Bomber has Sibbit injured but Boyle returning from the one match suspension he picked up against Wigan. Leuluai, Jewitt and Ratchford, all rumoured to be ready to return from injury this week, are not named in the nineteen. Has McRae already given this one up and could he be keeping his powder dry for the Crusaders, Giants, KR and Wakefield.

He has named his nineteen as; Fitzpatrick, J. Smith, Henry, Neal, Gibson, Adamson, Parker, Sidlow, Alker, Broughton, Spencer, Sneyd, Swain, M. Smith, Littler, Boyle, Tyrer, Holdsworth, and Cashmere.

Three Reds to watch;




We have never lost a Superleague era game at Salford, and they have only beaten us once in twenty-five times of asking, the 20-30 loss at Headingley last season. Our average win over the twenty-five games has been 35-17, an average winning margin of 18 points.

That said, Salford have won two out of their last three matches, the same record as the Rhinos, including the Reds 'shock' win over the freefalling Bulls last weekend. Prediction
Reds 06 28 Rhinos

Sundays forecast is for a nice sunny afternoon with a little cloud and a low chance of rain (20%).

The Predicitions Prize Money thread for sponsors 'bet' is now on and would net the prize fund 765.50 as we have taken one handicap draw on the Saints game. The bookies have given the Reds a 12 point start on the handicaps, I think that the Rhinos are better value than that and would take us to cover it.

Safe journey, see you there, and enjoy the game.
