This week we enter round 7 and there are one or two interesting fixtures.|
SAINTS v. BULLS
This week the scousers return to their Squat in Widnes hoping to steal their
first home win of the year.
The pot hole dwellers arrive on the back of a surprise win against the
previously unbeaten "Waltons" of SL.
The home team will have boosted their confidence after picking the Rhinos
pockets last time out and proving that the over-rated super-brat need not be
For coach Potter he returns to club where is GF defeats left a bitter taste
in the locals mouths so he won't be expecting a warm welcome.
Whilst the visitors over-achieved last week this time they'll fall short and
be out-fought by the hosts and be left "on bricks" with no points for their
St's by 14.

WARRIORS v. WOLVES
The game of the round and potentially the game of the season thus far in
prospect at the Pie-Dome.
Both teams enter this week after encouraging wins for the hosts their
depleted team took the spoils away from the Galpharm and left the locals
asking if the Giants are the real deal.
For the visiting K9 lovers they laid their collar down by showing their bite
in destroying the flying Quins at home.
A huge clash in prospect and a real test for the Pie munchers with a few
players out although the rugby gods have smiled this week and they will be
reinforced by Finch and Ratboy S.Tompkins.
This could go either way but I think the visitors will have too much bite
for the Crusty hosts.

DRAGONS v. REDS
Two of the up and down teams meet in France this week where the coach-less
Reds are the visitors.
Both teams will be full of confidence after much needed and surprising wins
last time out.
The hosts will hope there early season "attitude" is now behind them and the
Reds will be hoping their new look team will continue to gel and improve.
This could be a decent game with both teams capable of the good the bad and
down right ridiculous but I think home advantage should see the Dragons
breathe their fire.

KR v. GIANTS
Both teams will be looking to show they are the real deal this season after
poor efforts last time out left many questions unanswered.
For the Red Mullets they'll be hoping their Willie is left limp like last
week whilst the Giants will hope to cut out the daft unforced errors and
take more of their chances.
The hosts really miss their Limpit and general Dobson and Green isn't the
man to take that mantle yet as he looks to settle into the Reef.
The visitors will be more determined and "fat Robbie savage" and co handling
Willie they will be too big for the Robins.

QUINS v. FC
Another game that involves two teams hoping to make a point and show last week
was just a blip.
For the hosts all their early season work blew up in their multi coloured
shirts when they were ravaged by the hungry Wolves whilst the loudest chant
of the night in Cods-ville was the booing for Sponge-bob.
It's last chance Reef time for Birds eye Agar and his shell shocked, clammed
up salt-water dwellers.
Whilst all their hopes rest on a soap dodging 'past it' Stig a 95 yr old back
rower, the Tongan Muppets and "Radders" expect another loss and Agar to be
trawled off to the job center.
Quins by 8.

TIGERS v. CRUSADERS
After a surprise loss at the Grattan landfill last time out the wagon train
stays home to entertain the plastic Welsh outfit.
The banjoing flames finally died out last week the high 6's were replaced by
the harmonica led blues.
For the visitors they lost again and there must be some concern because
they've finally hit desperation in going out and signing "I'll behave
honest" Tansey and the very ordinary Bracek.
A season that started so well for rookie coach Harris is gonna get harder as
the Hoe down returns and cotton eye joe is in full swing down Cas Vegas way.

WILDCATS v. RHINOS
Whilst there were a few surprise results last week the performance of the
week has to go to JK's unloved Puddy cats.
They Strayed into Cods-Vile and took the spoils with a gritty and Clawed
performance no-one expected but lets not forget the Cat always gets the
This week the Big City rivals are the visitors and the Blue 'n' Amber
faithful will travel hoping that their team will cut out the daft errors and
strengthen their defensive effort after losing a game they could of won
against the scousers.
This is an interesting game in that no one will give the hosts a chance (me
included) but they thrive on it.
However we saw what the Blue 'n' Amber can do against the Reds when the
passes stick and I think the hosts will get the brunt of the Rhinos stampede
back towards some sort of form.
