rhinoms Superleague XVII Previews - Round 10
Posted by southstander on April 05 2012 - 07:04:52

by rhinoms

Last weeks predictions saw SouthStander.com finally come good as he predicted the correct winner in five of the seven games, and got the winning margin for Castleford exactly right.

rhinoms was only just behind with four from seven as the fixtures went more to form, perhaps with the exception of the Wildcats heavy defeat to the Broncos.

We take a look at the first of the weekends doube header.

Read more here....

This week we start the mad Easter fixtures and we still have shocks coming thick and fast.

Here are the previews for Easter Part I.

WOLVES v. VIKINGS

After another defeat to a top five rival the hosts will welcome the chance to get plenty of points in their 'plus' column.

The Vikings will hope to reduce a 70 deficit from last week and anything under 50 will be seen as progress.

TS has yet to get his team firing on all cylinders and questions are growing whether they missed their "GF" chance last year.

The visitors may put a decent 20 minutes together but are way out of their depth in this fixture especially after a home defeat last week the home faithful will demand a pasting as will TS himself.

A 2nd gear cruise for the hosts and the questioning of Skys choice to actually show this game should come thick and fast.

BRONCOS v. DRAGONS

It's the "Expansion" derby at the stoop as the two non-M62 divide clubs clash.

For the hosts they got a confidence boosting win against a decent Wakey outfit last week and had the added bonus of nilling them.

The visitors arrive after a 70-point training run against the SL whipping boys and will take confidence from their set moves and scoring structures working to a tee.

I think the hosts will be competitive for a while but I doubt they can match the quality of the visitors attack nor the intensity of their defence. If they are on song.

BULLS v. RHINOS

The scaremongers will have you believe this could be the last game ever at the crater of dreams.

The home team will be fired up and looking to put a marker down and take advantage of the visitors recent losing run and improve their abysmal home results.

The Blue 'n' Amber need to regroup and stick together as we know they can the return of TMFMISL is a bonus although losing the impact Moore made in the last two games is a blow.

It's set to be a blood and thunder clash with both teams having something to fight for and the hosts will have that bit more desperation and emotion invested in this game but that can also back-fire.

Both sides will have quality missing and whoever adapts and channels that emotion the better should get the spoils.

A hard fought match but I think we have that bit more skill out wide and that's where we'll do the damage and take the spoils.

GIANTS v. REDS

The hosts return home after an impressive and well deserved win at Headingley last time out and will be confident when the up and down Reds come to town.

Which Reds team turns up will be the deciding factor in this game IF it's the one that got a pasting against the Rhinos then it will be very much a repeat with the hosts showing no mercy.

However if it's the dogged and at times skillful 17 that beat Hull and Dulls away then it's game on.

The confirmation this week that coach Brown is DEFINITELY leaving will go against the visitors because they hosts will be too fired up to send him off a winner and show they can win despite his upcoming departure.

I think the Reds will compete but not have enough for the points.

FC v. KR

If the locals and their new owner are to believed we have new "Contenders" this year in the form of the B+W half of Fish Town.

For the Red half of the reef inconsistency is their form guide they can be great one week and poor the next although according to their "Woe is us" Whining aussie coach it's almost never their fault.

A fierce game as ever and the key will be the team that remains composed taking the points with the hosts already panicking by bringing a battered and past it Radford out of retirement.

Although getting some good wins the Gentle touch will run out this week when the tough Reds pack lay the ground work for Dobson and co to Skate to the points.

KR by 10.

SAINTS v. WARRIORS

Another big derby at the new home of the resurgent Saint's and they'll be buzzing after back to back wins against top 5 teams.

The visitors arrive after a comfortable win last time erased the bitter loss against Wire two weeks ago.

The hosts will be reeling from the bans for Wellens and Laffranchi and that is a big plus for Rat boy, Hock of the dead and chums.

However we've seen both teams win this game against the odds in the past and the home team will be fired up enough to maintain their recent return to top form and performance.

A real tough game to call and respective line-ups point to a Pie win but home advantage and very good form seals it for me.

WILDCATS v. TIGERS

This week it's the "Wrong Turn" meets the Hills have Eyes derby. The hosts will have had a week to sharpen their claws after their abysmal effort Darn sarf last week and the visitors will be extra confident after a last gasp win against the rated Robins.

It's a shame this isn't one of Skys choices because there is "history" in this fixture not least because the hosts sent the Tiggers down after completing "Mission impossible".

Basil will look to build on the win and improve his 6-fingered charges defensively whilst the hosts need to improve everything to be competitive this week.

The moonshine will be flowing, the fiddles will be dual ling and the spittoons over flowing and there may well be the odd missing tooth or 2. Plenty of fire and brimstone but a re-grouped Wakey should have enough to take the spoils.
