Game of the Season?
Posted by southstander on May 27 2005 - 12:38:07

New Coach

After weeks of being becalmed with matches against opposition we were expected to beat easily, the Rhinos players and their supporters are pleased to welcome back the Superleague big time as the Rhinos travel to a 'sold out' Knowsley Road.

The Rhinos are back at full strength as they look to establish a six point gap at the top of the league. Saints, under new coach Daniel Anderson, will be desperate to narrow the margin to two points.

One thing is for sure, this will be an absolute stormer of a match!

Leeds welcome back Bailey, Burrow and Senior, all of whom we appeared to miss greatly in last weeks narrow escape against Leigh Centurions at Headingley. Walker and Scruton definitely miss the game, and from the eighteen named earlier in the week I'd expect Scott Murrell to be the one the carry the water. I didn't think that McGuire looked fit, or interested, last week but Tony Smith will stick with him. Sinfield makes his 200th Rhinos start and will be looking to consolidate his position at the top of the points scoring charts.

This is the first game for new coach Daniel Anderson, after Dave Rotheram took charge for the games since Millward was spectacularly sacked. It is also the first real test for the home side since the departure of demi-god Millward, and it will be interesting to see if their hearts are in it.

Anderson will have little excuse for a loss as he appears to have all of the key players fit for tonights encounted. Long and Hooper will pair up at half-backs, with Sculthorpe at Loose. Lyon, Anderson, Albert and Cunningham are all named in the starting line-up. The only notable absentees are the injured Wellens and Higham.

Three Saints to watch;




The Rhinos made two visits to Knowsley Road last season in Superleague, losing the first by 56-10, our biggest defeat of the season. In th second encounter we snathced a win from the jaws of a draw with a 25-19 victory. It is never simple to travel to Knowsley Road, and for a number of years it has been our bogey ground.

There is some rain forcast for this afternoon but it should be dry again by kick-off. We'll be under the shed making as much noise as possible. Prediction
Saints 24 28 Rhinos

The bookies are giving the Saints a six point start on the coupon, which for me looks about right on recent form. I don't think that either side will run-away with it, and a score in the dying minutes could settle it.

There will be a good all-ticket Leeds crowd there, and fingers crossed, we can come away with the two points and be one step closer to a second consecutive minor premiership!

Don't forget to take a look at Oldlady's Ground Guide to Saints.
