After a week off for the CC we return to SL action this weekend here are
this weeks previews.|
GIANTS v. WARRIORS
One of the games of the weekend at the Galpharm as the Rat-boy and co arrive
with revenge on their minds.
The hosts will be hoping to prove their round one win in Pies-ville was no fluke
and increase their grip on the top two.
This should be a belter although the visitors had a much harder task against
their biterest rivals in the CC which could have a bruising effect on their
For Pug and co their cruise against the Broncos will only serve as a
training run which is not ideal prep for this match.
A real battle of 2 big packs and some fast backs is on the cards but revenge
and that bit more battle hardened approach should see the visitors take the
Pies by 10.

REDS v. BULLS
A week off for these two should mean they start the game refreshed and
looking to kick on into some good SL form.
The visitors have got some good wins since the begging bowls and woe is us
BS and will go into this favourites.
The hosts are just desperate for some winning form after near misses against
Wire and the Champs in the CC prior to that.
a reasonable contest but the home side need the points to start climbing the
league and rebuild some much needed confidence.
It should be close and a try either way could get the spoils but i think the
hosts will just have enough to get the points.
Reds by 10.

KR v. TIGERS
Basil takes his hillbillies East this week to the red half of fish town.
The hosts will be hoping for a win to put them back into the top 8 race
whilst the Tiggers are desperate to close the gap.
With spanish archer (El-Bow) Chase back the away side will be looking to him
to lead them into some consistent winning form.
The hosts have the better team on paper but are so inconsistent it's hard to
gauge which team will turn up.
I think the week off will have done the home side more good and enabled them
to re-group and start some winning form.
A good home win against a weak and indifferent Cas.

BRONCOS v. FC
This week the whipping boys welcome the Bouyant B+W half of fish town.
The hosts just go from defeat to defeat and already the season can't end
quick enough for many involved in the "Cockney" branch of SL.
The Gentle touch arrive after an open top trawler cruise round the Humber
after a rare win against the defending Champs last time out.
This week they'll be able to stay in 2nd gear and take the spoils against a
team that if it really were a "Bronco" would have been put down by now.
Ull by 26.

WILDCATS v. WOLVES
The week off could prove to be a blessing for the puddy cats in that they
should have got some good work on the training ground done with what is
still a new team.
The visitors will be confident after a well deserved win away in France but
it was a tough game which could have some effect here.
I've not seen the Refs list as yet but i'll be surprised if Wire can count
on Alibert who couldn't count last time these two met which ultimately cost
the Wakey team a win.
The home lads should be fresh and come out firing but the Wolves are
starting to bite into some form and should have far too much to claw the
Wire by 22.

VIKINGS v. DRAGONS
After cup despair the Dragons will be happy enough to burn their hosts this
week and build up their points diference.
The hosts may compete for an hour but once again given that they are the
worst team in the league they'll fold eventually.
A good away win for the "October hide 'n' seek champ" and his new team
Dragons by 28.

RHINOS v. SAINTS
The game of the weekend at HQ as the Blue 'n' Amber play a home game for the
first time in a few weeks.
This week we get the chance to rectify that abysmal effort away at the
plastic scousers new flat pack home.
The visitors arrive beaten and bruised after their tough CC loss against the
The Champs should have some quality to return to the 17 and should be sharp
after their 10 try fest in Leigh.
It's the fixture that launches Sky's new Monday Night live SL agenda so
expect a belter with both having enough reasons for wanting the win.
As always it should have plenty of fire and skill but I expect the rest for
some of the Rhinos and the hosts arriving battered and bruised we should get
the points and start our charge to the top 4.
Rhinos by 8.
