Friday 13th Horror Show
Posted by southstander on August 13 2010 - 09:04:23

Horror Night
Friday the thirteenth and the Rhinos travel to the 'House of Horrors' to take on a Castleford side who are desperate for a win to keep their hopes of the last play-off place alive.

When Mmmmm...Mattersons side took the points at Headingley in Round Two it signalled the start of a disasterous Leeds run, but with three games left we are in strong contention for fourth spot and have secured a place in the showpiece Wembley Final.

Will it be Leeds or Tigers fans hiding behind the sofa?

We preview the game here...

With the almost squad back to full fitness following the surprise return of Greg Eastwood last saturday, Bluey has an embarrassment of riches from which to choose. Ali Lauiti'iti makes yet another comeback in a season which has seen him a regular in the treatment room but Bailey and Buderus are rested (have slight injuries) and expect more of that next week against the Dragons as we make sure that we have a fully fit and rested side for the Wembley trip.

Ian Kirke is also named in the nineteen after being absent last week as is Scott Donald after being overlooked in favour of Lee Smith for the cup semi-final. It wouldn't surprise me if Bluey omitted two more senior players from his nineteen of; Webb, Donald, Delaney, Senior, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Lauiti'iti, Sinfield, Diskin, Eastwood, Kirke, Burgess, McShane, Clarkson, and Smith, although in any normal situation it would be McShane and Clarkson who miss out.

Matterson names the same team that lost to Hull KR in the midst of controversy a fortnight ago. A weeks rest will have done his battered side good and as always they will raise their game for the visit of their big city neighbours. It is 'all or nothing' for the Tigers as a loss will almost certainly mean that their season will end after the final whistle in round twenty-seven.

The Tigers nineteen is; Dixon, Shenton, Wainwright, Chase, Sargent, Hudson, Huby, Ferres, Snitch, Westerman, Jones, Higgins, Clayton, Thompson, McGoldrick, Widders, Holmes, Walker, and Arundel. Three Tigers to watch;




Round two of SLXV saw us losing 10-24 to a Tigers side who kicked us within an inch of our lives at Headingley. On our last visit to The Jungle we won a thrilling encounter with a last second Sinfield penalty to take the points by 24-22. That game was played in a torrential rainstorm and some forecasters have suggested that we may be in for the same weather tonight.

The last time we lost in Castleford was two seasons ago in 2008 when we were well and truly demoloshed by 20-38. Prediction
Tigers 18 30 Rhinos

There is nothing that gets a Cas fan going like the visit of the Rhinos. The lads, and no doubt ourselves, will be the victims of the vitriol which has already landed them a big fine and the condemnation of national newspapers this season. It could be as tasty with the verbal exchanges on the terraces as it will be on the pitch.

Lets face it, it's going to rain. It will be a thoroughly miserable night for one set of supporters as we see plenty of the wet stuff. With a large crowd likely there will be plenty of scrambling to get under cover.

The Predicitions Prize Money thread for sponsors 'bet'. The bookies have given the Tigers a ten point start in the handicapping but I don't think (hope) that will be enough.

See you there and enjoy the game.
