rhinoms Superleague XVI Previews - Round 8
Posted by southstander on March 30 2011 - 18:33:59

Leeds v. Wigan. Huddersfield against Wakefield. Reds v. Crusaders. It's looking like another interesting weekend of Superleague action.

There are some tough ones to call but rhinoms is confident about a Rhinos win over the Cherry & Whites, is less convinced.

Read more here....

This week we enter round 8 and the tests will become harder and the errors more costly as the table takes shape.

Here are my thoughts on this weeks fixtures.


After saving sponge-bob for at least a week the reef will welcome the wagon train into cods-vile.

The visitors bounced back in style last week against the plastic taffs and will be looking to add to Birds eyes woes.

This could be a tough game to call with both getting confidence from decent wins and the fish fingered hosts will be looking to mussel up and leave the banjoes shell shocked.

The visitors are much more of a challenge this year and the fiddles will be on fire and leave the reef clammed up and the banjoes will play the last rites on sponge-bobs FC reign.

The game of the round sees the Blue 'n' Amber welcome the defending champs who arrive on the back of a good hiding after been eaten by the Wolves. The hosts will of gained confidence after an improved 2nd half against a determined Wakey outfit but will be looking for much more to lay down the gauntlet to the Crustless visitors.

For the visitors they will be determined to show last weeks mauling was a blip and that they are still the team to beat with the likes of Rat boy S.Tompkins and his returning brother hoping to add another 2 points to their tally.

The Blue 'n' Amber will be hoping their own charge can begin after the return of Bailey, Kylie and Cross added weight to the pack last week and prove their own steel is intact.

A really tough uncompromising battle in prospect but I think its time to prove we are "thick Skinned" and the real deal in 2011.

This week the plastic scousers will be more comfortable squatters after finally getting their 1st home win last week.

For the visitors the task of getting a win doesn't get any easier especially while their Willie is limp and their general Dobson is injured and de-registered so the pressure could start to tell on coach Morgan and the FC side of cods-vile may not be the only trawler looking to net a new coach.

After his tantrum and believing his own hype super brat Eastmond is again available to aid the strawberry blonde plump kid and co and the coaches selection could be the strongest indicator yet as to whether we'll see him in the Red V again.

Try as they might it will take more than a little blue pill and a keen Willie to get the 2 pts and more woe for the Red Mullets.

A re-match of the opening weekend and how different the two sides fortunes have panned out.

For the hosts they've received a couple more good hidings but have gained some really good wins along the way as they've looked to get their new boys to gel.

The plastic South Welshmen arrive yet to win a meaningful fixture since their entertaining and quality win on day 1 and coach Harris is learning the hard way that SL isn't as easy as his team made it look in Cardiff. Both teams have lost players this week for the Reds new signing Phil Bailey retired without ever appearing and the visitors lost their talisman 6 Witt to suspension.

A real test of character for the Welsh outfit and even more pressure on their coach as the Reds inflict their revenge for day 1 humiliation.

The hosts showed a real killer instinct last time out and left the Red mullets and their Willie pointless and limp.

The underdogs of SL are this weeks visitors and JK will be hoping his team improve their attacking threat after only scoring 1 try last time out despite huge amounts of possession.

The Giants are starting to look like the contenders they were tipped to be so thoughts of an upset are very feint and the returning Robinson seems to have taken the weight of Mono-brow.

The best the Cats can hope for is another respectful performance and look to pick up points elsewhere as this weeks task is just too Giant.

The French visit the Wolf pack this week and they arrive after a poor home result last week so improvement will be essential if they are to test the current form team of SL.

Morley and co will be buzzing after last weeks destruction of the champions in the pie-dome and with TS in charge there's no way they'll take the visitors lightly.

New coach Robinson will have to come up with something very special to get the win this week and avoid being bitten by the hosts but I don't think they have the fire to stop the Wolf pack.

Another team will feel the full force of the Wolf bite this week.

The Gratten Pot-Hole welcomes the surprise package this week as the Quins arrive from down south.

After a morale-boosting win against the Waltons last time out the locals will be expecting the same and proof from their team that it was no fluke. Coach Powell will have his team fired up after a poor home loss when they seemed in control of the game.

The improved crowds at the Landfill will take a nose-dive as the southern faithful arrive on a Skateboard but the long journey will be worth it as Potters pub crew revert to type.
