As we enter round 13 the shocks just keep on coming.|
Here are my thoughts on this weeks fixtures.
TIGERS v. RHINOS
The Blue 'n' Amber travel to our country neighbours this week and the
Banjoes, Wrong Turn cast john boy Walton and co will make sure it's a very
After getting robbed by the scousers last time out the hosts will be
determined to get the win this week and they will raise their game when the
team from the city come to town.
The visitors managed to get maximum points over Easter but there's still
plenty of improvement left in them and this week we manage to get Jamie "The
Machine" Peacock back in the 17 so morale will be high.
The 6 fingered, Web footed hosts will prove to be a stern test and a major
hoe down will be planned if they win but to no avail as the Rhinos are
looking to show their true worth and will charge to the 2 pts leaving the
locals without a shin-dig and the "moonshine" on ice.

DRAGONS v. GIANTS
The Hosts welcome the table-topping angels of SL this week.
Last time out the hosts got bogged down by the bad weather in their dour
draw with Potters pub team.
The visitors arrive after a mixed Easter they were well beaten in Wrexham
but then put 50 on a inconsistent Reds outfit.
This will be a battle of two big packs and a dual between Mono-brow and enfant
This could go either way but I think the hosts will make their home
advantage count after a poor game last time out.
A tough game but Astra thief and O'getdown will leave empty handed.
Dragons by 7.

QUINS v. REDS
Two teams desperate for a win to help put their inconsistency behind them
meet down south.
The hosts are playing some decent RL but not for the full 80 and the early
season promise is dwindling away.
The Reds are the most unpredictable team in the SL one week awful and the
next they play well which like their coaching predicament isn't helpful.
An entertaining game in prospect and an interesting shoot out between Dorn,
Gale and Randall against Patten, Holdsworth and Ratchford.
End to end action but the Reds will have too much and continue their up down

CRUSADERS v. WARRIORS
The home side welcome the defending champs this week after a very good win
at home last time against the table-topping Giants.
The visitors look to be back on form after the earlier blip and will be
looking to continue that form in Wrexham.
Coach Harris will have his team fired up after they were well beaten at HQ
but they'll need to toughen up to trouble the Rat boy and co.
A valiant effort by the hosts but the Pies will be too strong and the "world
class" shouts from porridge gun Clarke will ring out on boots 'n' all next
Pies by 16.

WILDCATS v. KR
JK will have his team fired up for another unlikely win when the red half of
cods-vile sails into town.
Both teams had a mixed Easter but the biggest win was claimed by the puddy
cats when beating the Tiggers.
The circus that is "Willie" is finally over and no amount of blue pills,
de-registering or flag sails could prevent him being a "Flop"!
Another tough game and with general Dobson back at the helm the hosts will
look to skate up the table but to no avail this week.
Another great win for the unloved and under-rated Puddy Cats.

BULLS v. WOLVES
The much fancied Wire visit the Grattan land fill this week.
The hosts managed to scrape a point over Easter and although their
performances looked much improved they still didn't win.
The visitors arrive on the back of another shock loss this time to
sponge-bob and his over the hill pile 'o' dung.
2 teams desperate for the win but only one with any notable quality even
though the TS 3yr syndrome is hinting at an appearance.
The hosts may have another decent go but not good enough as the "not as good
as they think they are" Wire take the spoils.
Wire by 18.

FC v. SAINTS
The reef will be in great spirits when the shell suited pick-pockets arrive
The hosts have managed to get two very good wins over the holiday period and
sponge-bob still has a job.
The visitors were not so good in losing to their fierce rivals and then
leaving Cas on bricks in the last minute.
Losing soap dodging Stig is a blow to the home side and although they have
Obst and problem child Gleeson it's not gonna take them to the two points
A tough game to call on current form but the OAP's of cods-ville will have
their joints clam up and their mussle won't be enough to prevent KFC and co
thieving another win.
