Time to Visit the Country Cousins
Posted by southstander on March 02 2012 - 09:44:17

Banjo Time
Having missed the game against Wakefield due to WCC obligations it feels like we are languishing in mid-table. In reality we are a 'game in hand' win from fifth and a big margin 'game in hand' win from second.

This week we look to keep our campaign running with a trip to visit our country cousins who will, as always, treat the game like their own little cup final.

SKY have picked the game and it could be a cracker.

We preview the game, read more here...

Jamie Peacock (MBE) is back in the side after a weeks rest with Big Mac correctly predicting that he wouldn't really be needed to overcome basement strugglers the Widnes Vikings. Ryan Bailey is absent for a second week running with an achilles problem and Weller Hauraki was dealt a blow last week in picking up an injury which will keep him out for several weeks and which once again prevents him from getting in a decent run in the side.

The still injured Jamie Jones-Buchanan is the only player with a squad number in the first thirteen not to be named in tonights squad but Liam Hood does get in the nineteen for the first time this season after picking up an injury in the Rob Burrow Testimonial match in pre-season.

The coach has named a very strong ninteen of; Webb, Jones-Bishop, Watkins, Hardaker, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Ablett, Sinfield, Delaney, Kirke, Clarkson, Moore, Griffin, Pitts, and Hood.

Castleford are without their head coach as Ian Millward continues to mourn the tragic untimely death of his son, whose funeral takes place in Leigh today. He has the sympathy of everyone in the game at this difficult time.

The Castleford side is bolstered by the return of Brett Ferres who missed the big loss to Wigan last week with a hamstring injury and Australian prop Grant Millington will make his Superleague debut after recovering from a shoulder injury. As always, Castleford have a side with some quality, but a side which consistently fails to meet expectations, lets hope tonight is true to that form.

The nineteen man Castleford squad is; Owen, Youngquest, Dixon, Griffin, Chase, Orr, Emmitt, Clark, Ferres, Snitch, Jones, Milner, Mitchell, Millington, Holmes, Massey, McGoldrick, Nash, and Grehan.

Three bumpkins to keep an eye on;




During Super League the Rhinos have won on twenty-three occasions against the Tigers, drawn twice and lost nine times.

The last loss was at Headingley in 2010 when we were defeated by 24-10 and the last time that we lost at the Jungle (or whatever it is called this week) was a few days under four years ago when the scoreline was 38-20.

Last season we hammered the Tigers in the away game by 48-06 before dishing out a 56-00 crushing at Headingley in August. On that night we had eight different try scorers racking up nine tries, six of which Sir Kev goaled.

The home side will be hoping that they can put on a better show than they could muster last year. Prediction
Tigers 24 38 Rhinos

With just one win under their 2012 belts, and that against Salford Reds on the opening day of the season, you suspect that there can only be one winner from tonights game, and they will be from the big city.

I've gone for a fourteen point win, which is exactly the handicap that the bookies are giving us. Worth taking the handicapped draw?

It is going to be a cloudy evening but with only a small chance of rain. Wrap up warm though as winter looks as though it may be on its way back this weekend as temperatures drop back into low single figures before kick-off.

Travel safe and enjoy the game, hopefully with a packed house.
