rhinoms Superleague XVI Previews - Round 4
Posted by southstander on March 03 2011 - 08:08:54

Is it really Round 4 of Superleague XVI already?

What an incredible three weeks we've had so far; administration, injury and controversy have dominated the early stages of the season. But good to see normality return last sunday night as the Warriors took over the Rhinos mantle of losing the WCC to the Aussies.

Wee look ahead to what this weekends action may bring.

Read more here....

We enter round 4 of SL this week and already the shocks, injuries and dodgy calls are increasing.

Here are this weeks previews.


All is not well in Cods-ville there's real tension amongst the Reef and the pressure is rising against Sponge -bob Agar and the last thing he needs is his team of Whelks to Clam up.

The home team will be hoping not to go into their shells as they welcome one of the "young gun" coaches of SL and his plastic Welsh outfit.

The Visitors will be looking to get a morale-boosting win after crashing back to earth twice on the bounce with defeats after a very promising start. I think the "catch of the day" will be Agar getting thrown back to the fishes after another poor effort and demoralizing home defeat.

After a morale boosting win on the road last time out the thrown together Reds outfit welcome the "close but no cigar" WCC wannabes the Pies.

The Fat controller will be relieved he wasn't picking up his P45 after last weekends efforts but this week the challenge is much greater and could be much more painful. Will Bomber be able to keep the telly switched off as he stays away under doctors orders.

The Crusty visitors will be hurting after their efforts and Clarke's bleating were all in vain last week but they do tend to bounce back from defeats and will be looking to push on this week with their SL campaign. A reasonable effort from the "nobody loves us" Reds but not good enough. Pies by 16.

The first live game of the weekend takes place at the unbeaten league leaders where the unfancied and expansion project welcome the Giants.

After a very deserved and clinical win at HQ last week they will hoping to replicate that form at home where the top 4 fancied Giants ride into town after a hard fought win shelling the Cods last time out.

The visitors will have taken notice of the Quins win last week and will be looking to cut out the errors and poor defence that cost the Rhinos so dear. Whilst the Quinns look a lot better than their pre-season billing suggests and they deservedly won last week I think it will actually go against them with a much more switched on Giants taking the spoils.

The hosts welcome their CC victims this week and they will be buzzing after finally laying their winless run against the scousers to rest.

The visitors really will have to improve 100%, not least defensively to get a morale-boosting win here.

Both teams have quality sat in the treatment room which when you compare the two available squads the odds favour a home win and disappointment for the Blue 'n' Amber faithful.

Whilst many will write us off I actually think a tough away test is what we need after last week and expect the Rhinos to rise to the occasion and come back with a charge.

The hosts pulled off one of the shocks of the season so far when they invaded the red half of cods-ville and came out with the two points.

That was a much needed confidence boost and showed that they can actually play this game when they try and can be bothered.

The visitors arrive after finally losing their grip over the Wire and the worst kept secret that "super brat" Eastmond is leaving and some of the Hup-Cap faithful will wish him good riddance after his ignorance at the F/T whistle.

A tricky test for Plump Sandy Haired Baby and his "Fagins" gang but one I think they'll pass.

The unbeaten Hosts return to SL action this week after an enforced week off for the WCC.

They welcome the "Shell shocked" Robins who will be rudderless after their team leader Dobson was ruled out for 10 wks and the loss at home to the Frenchmen.

The Banjoes will finally tuned after a weeks worth of "Hoe downs" and they will looking to get the fiddles dualling again after extending their unbeaten run.

Where's Willy ? Who knows? but missing their mercurial seven is a blow the visitors could do without and it's too early for Green and co to shore up the gap.

A real bottom four contest in store at the Grattan Pot-Hole this week. The visitors will be hoping to bounce back after a home trouncing by the fat controllers Reds whilst the hosts will be hoping to erase the pasting they got last time they turned out at home.

The hosts are without Walker and Le'strange who were injured in what proved to be a costly win last week and an already average team is looking threadbare.

JK will hope his young Kittens can show their claws this week and that the Old Toms amongst them lead the way to another much needed two points. A real up and down season for both teams will continue and whilst the hosts hope that the 2 bob and half a packet of wine gums pricing policy will encourage another bumper crowd it won't last as they lose again at home.
