rhinoms Superleague XVII Previews - Round 12
Posted by southstander on April 18 2012 - 06:39:59

by rhinoms

Games went more to form on Easter monday and as a result rhinoms picked the correct winner in all seven games and SouthStander.com was only let down by backing the Wolves to beat the Dragons.

This weekends games look a lot more tricky for our predictors with the Rhinos welcoming the Dragons, Hull FC hosting Wigan and Salford travelling to Wakefield.

How will our predictors fare this round?

Read more here....

After a week away for the Challenge Cup we return to the Bread and Butter of the SL here are the previews for this weekends fixtures.

RHINOS v. DRAGONS

A big challenge at HQ for the defending champs in the shape of the in form dragons.

After disappointing results against Saints and the Giants the Blue 'n' Amber will be keen to get the win and close the gap on the top four.

Both teams had good Cup wins but the visitors had the tougher task and will arrive confident and ready for a battle.

Although missing some quality, and doubts over Burrow after last week, the home side need the win more than the visitors and I expect a tough encounter in front of the cameras.

A tough and entertaining match in prospect but expect the Champs to get the spoils and drag themselves back into the race for a top three spot.

SAINTS v. VIKINGS

After a late hiccup last time out the hosts will be much sharper when they face their cup opponents this week.

The visitors will take a lot of confidence from scoring 38 points against the same opposition but this isn't the fairy tale of the CC.

Expect a fast start from the home team and whether the visitors can stay in touch will determine if it's a reasonable effort or a huge loss.

I can't see the Vikings troubling the scoreboard like last week whereas the Saints will be fired up and determined to put the game to bed before half time.

WILDCATS v. REDS

The home side will be looking to build on their first half efforts of last week where they deservedly lead at half time.

This week they welcome the hot and cold Reds who will pose threats and ask questions of the home team.

This really could be an end-to-end game with plenty of points and both teams having reasonable attacking options.

I think last week will be enough to give the home team the confidence for the full 80 minutes this week and take the points.

BULLS v. GIANTS

The in form home team welcome the top team this week and they will hope to continue their good recent form and get more than the pathetic 3k that came out last week.

The visitors go into the game after re-signing problem child Moore after his sacking by Widnes and they will be confident of continuing their grip on top spot.

I think the home side will produce their usual spirited grind but they won't have enough with or without the ball to beat the Giants.

A good away win with pot holers start their slide down the league begging bowls in hand.

Giants by 16.

FC v. WARRIORS

After the reality check last week the gentle touch will again entertain a top team with very much the same result on the cards.

The reef have been telling everyone and anyone what a top team they are since signing Ellis but the recall of Radford highlighted just how much their squad lacks depth.

Last week also proved they are far from a top 4 team and maybe their recent form was just that rather than a showing of any worth that they are top SL team.

Rat-Boy and Hock of the dead will enjoy another easy away day and take the points and although the home whelks may put up a spirited effort they aren't good enough yet.

KR v. BRONCOS

Two teams desperate for SL points after the Easter period.

It was a case of so near so far last week for the Robins whereas the visitors cruised somewhat against inferior opponents.

The visitors just aren't good enough to put a consistent 80 minutes together week after week and the writing must surely be on the wall for coach Powell. The hosts will be hoping for a return to winning ways whilst looking to improve their points difference.

The Broncos may compete for an hour but the huge home pack will be too strong.

Robins by 20.

WOLVES v. TIGERS

A chance for the home team to rest some regulars this week when Basil and his comedy crew arrive in town.

The hosts will be looking to build a consistent 80 minute performance after some disjointed performances in the League of late.

The visitors should be minus their talisman after his "Spanish Archer" (El-Bow) on Ropati last week.

What can be said of the Tiggers other than HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

I think the Wire will up their efforts and put the mange-ridden visitors to the sword.
