rhinoms Superleague XVI Previews - Round 10
Posted by southstander on April 14 2011 - 09:01:02

by rhinoms

The only thing predictable about Superleague XVI is its unpredictablility.

Who'd have picked the Dragons to beat the Warriors at the DW? Lowly KR to make the Rhinos look like a pub team? Or Wakefield to put over fifty points past the Harlequins?

Will we do any better this week?

Read more here....

We enter round 10 and the table is taking shape. The only thing is that no-one told Cas they weren't supposed to be top with the Giants!

Here are my thoughts on this weeks fixtures.


The Waltons take their wagon train south this week to visit one of the expansion clubs in London.

The league leaders will be in great spirits, and will be very confident of another win against the seemingly frail hosts.

The home team look a pale shadow of the side that took the points away from HQ and the Scouse squat on the back of gritty defence and clinical finishing.

The banjos will once again be firing out 'cotton eyed joe' all the way back up the M1 as the 'surprise' package continue to revert to their pre-season billing as also rans.

The Red half of cods-vile will be hoping to build on a comfortable win last time out despite having key players missing and their Willie lacking stiffness.

The forlorn Pies arrive this week after the Dragons did what the Rhinos failed to do by exposing the defending champs as the chumps they appear to be.

Rat boy and Angel Lima will be hoping to bounce back and give coach Mcguire a win they desperately need now the SL seem wise to his sh#*house tactics and the one season wonder tag grows stronger.

Although the hosts appeared to mussel up in a well deserved win last time out they are aided by a defence that even a French Battalion would have been ashamed of, and the performance of a crazy whistle clown from Cummings' officiating Circus.

Both teams are lacking confidence but the Pies will have too much and won't make the same mistakes the last visitors did.

A much needed sacrificial lamb for the home side this week after two consecutive beatings that showed they don't have as big a bite as some would think.

However, the plastic South Welshmen will duly turn up for a good old fashioned hiding and aid the headline makers in saying that TS has got his trophy favourites back on track.

It will be another case of damage limitation for Coach Harris and his team as they will meet a side who are too good, and coming off the back of a good old rollicking from TS. The score-board will be ticking over at regular intervals.

A miss-match in store and cue the Wire faithful telling anyone and everyone they will win everything.

The league leaders arrive at HQ on the back of an impressive destruction of the Wire last time out looking strong, in form and hoping to add to the home sides woes.

The Blue 'n' Amber really have to step up show hunger, desire and the strength needed to keep this big Giants pack at bay.

The natives are getting restless and already the lists for departures and new arrivals are popping up like mushrooms everywhere.

The team have skill and have shown albeit in glimpses that they can match the better teams in this league but they've also had some shocking efforts so it's time to man up and put in a full 80 minute performance.

Mono-brow and Pug face will be looking to guide the big pack around and expose the past weakness shown by the home defence but this week they will meet a fired up and more resolute Rhino outfit and leave coach Brown still questioning if they are the real this year.

Leeds by 7.

The KFC Kid and his chums meet a wakey outfit brimming with confidence after doing what they failed to do in beating the Londoners.

The home team are settling into their new quat and getting their form going even without the hide n seek champ and the "Rooney" of SL Gobsh#*e Eastmond.

JK will have his misfit team fired up for another encouraging effort but once again they'll come up short as the home team continue to build under Simmons.

Too big a task for the visitors this week.

Spongebob and Co. cross the channel this week looking to trawl another win after his job was saved by beating the pot-hole pub team.

This week though the reef will feel the fire of a Dragon outfit going from big win to big win now the language barriers have been broken down and they've shown hear and steel.

Whether or not the coach can blame the ref will be irrelevant like his black n white team because the tongan muppets, Radders and any other pathetic name their fish fingered followers call them they won't be good enough to net a win here.

Vive le France will be once again heard around the home ground and they'll have their mussels how they like them swimming in a garlic and cream based sauce for dinner.

This week coach Potter takes his over achievers to the Willows where the home team are missing two of their coaching staff and any kind of consistency in their performance.

After taking the lead last week against the cod eads they capitulated late on and were well beaten whilst the hosts were leaking 50+ against the Deliverance cast.

It really could go either way with two average teams needing a win but I think the hosts will want it more in front of their own crowd leaving Potter without another win on the road.

If you are traveling to a game this week have a safe journey and also don't forget that the Rhinos u20's will be the Giants as the curtain raiser KO at 17.45.

Enjoy the action and thanks for reading.
