Lawrie - The View from the South Stand

In a similar vein to Top Gears Stig, our Mr X. has outed himself and come clean as to his identity.

In his column this week he previews this weekends Cardiff action.

The View From The South Stand

So the Sun is rising on another brand new Engage Super League season about to kick off in the wonderful city of Cardiff. This off/pre season has been a rather nasty and boring one on a personal level so the start of the season has put a smile on my face.

The decision to return to the Welsh Capital for the Magic weekend is a fantastic decision, Murrayfield felt odd and the ground didnít feel quite right and felt too far out of the City Centre to create a party atmosphere that previous years in Cardiff had.

The only downside for me is the timing, yes it is going to be cold (rather than the first warmth of the summer in the May Bank Holiday weekend) but in Cardiff we are up against Cardiff City FC playing Scunthorpe and Welsh Rugby Union playing against Scotland up at Murrayfield, either way Cardiff will be busy for the weekend.

The fixtures this weekend look superb.

Huddersfield v Warrington - potentially cracking game to open the event and looks as though Wire could get a Ruff reception for their new signing- Wire by 18.

Catalans v Quins - two new coaches, two nervous teams, can see this being close and Dragons winning by a try.

Castleford v Wakefield - potentially a cracker of a game between two sides who may not be in Super League much longer, Castleford by 12.

Wigan v Saints - Champions to win by 16.

Salford v Crusaders - opening game of Sunday, potentially recover from Saturday night, Salford by plenty.

Leeds v Bradford - looks a belter on paper, could be a tight one but do expect us to win by 10+.

Codhead derby - shame no Mason appearance but that wont stop a fierce Hull derby happening, Rovers by 14.

Looks a top weekend and I cant wait for it, if you see me around in Cardiff please come say hello!
