rhinoms Superleague XVII Previews - Round 21
Posted by southstander on July 19 2012 - 08:17:52

by rhinoms

Round 20 was extraordinary for SouthStander.com as his time machine allowed him to predict the winning margin correctly for three out of seven games, and get within a point of a fourth.

The Bulls v. Broncos, Salford v. KR and Warriors v. Wildcats were all correctly predicted and had it not been for a Wolves drop goal he'd have got that one right too.

Surely it gets no better than that?

After a week off for the Challenge Cup semi-finals we return to SL this week and the race for the top eight is getting tighter.

Here are this weeks previews.

DRAGONS v. SAINTS

The visitors will be feeling refreshed after a week off but this is a very tough away trip as 3rd meets 4th.

The hosts will welcome the chance of consecutive home games after their destruction of the B+w pretenders last time out to complete their game in hand.

With only 2 pts between them on the table this could have a big say on who finishes in the top 3 and after their dramatic implosion at home which saw the departure of their coach Simmons during the aftermath the scousers will want to put that right.

One of the games of the weekend and a humdinger in prospect but i think home advantage and playing last week will just give Les Dragons that edge and keep 3rd spot in their grasp.

RHINOS v. BULLS

This week the Blue 'n' Amber return home to a heroes welcome and a big derby against the "Greece" of SL.

To be fair the visitors and their coaching staff have shone through during this debacle and they've claimed plenty of scalps along the way. This is 5th v 6th although what points deduction the visitors are to receive is yet to be decided.

The hosts put everything into last weeks epic semi-final win whilst the visitors had chance to take stock and freshen up whilst the brown and smelly was flying all around them.

This is gonna be a tougher than usual prospect the Dulls are very dangerous because they've nothing to lose or fear and arrive after a stunning win in the Pie Dome.

However you do get the sense that the Champs are finally starting to go through the gears rather than just the motions and on the back of a 5 game winning streak and places for Wembley up for grabs the hosts still have the edge.

REDS v. VIKINGS

The hosts really are showing some great RL whilst picking up surprise wins along the way whilst the visitors can play well ala Cas or can revert back to the not so good.

Losing Smith early was a blow but this Reds team really fancy a crack at the 8 and i can't see the Vikings having enough over the 80 to stop them.

A home win but the visitors should compete.

Reds by 16.

BRONCOS v. WARRIORS

A great move by the hosts board to remove Powell and get Rea in but it won't be good enough this week nor will it salvage their poor season.

This is just what the Pies will have wanted after losing a supposedly one horse race and the hosts will be the perfect cannon fodder for Clarke and co to get back to their "fifty shades of Pie".

TIGERS v. WOLVES

The season cant end soon enough in Rock Ridge and Sheriff Basil is rebuilding already with El-Bows imminent departure and the already departed oxygen thief Mcgoldrick.

This is another chance for TS to continue his rotation policy with very little risk of dropping points.

The hosts will have some confidence after destroying the free-falling self coaching Giants last time out but this is different against a decent team.

Training run for Wire after an hours graft.

GIANTS v. WILDCATS

This could be a big chance for Wakey to take a decent scalp with the hosts in a mess.

The home side were awful last week culminating in Coach Browns departure but will Anderson have had long enough to change the structure and more importantly the attitude of some of his squad?

Wakey will compete and have a better chance than normal but you get the feeling the Giants still have a punch or 2 left shown perfectly by Eorls chase back on Bridge when last weeks match had gone.

A tough game but the grind will do the home team good.

Giants by 10.

KR v. FC

It's the Cod War!!

The Red hosts will be desperate to add to their neighbours woes of poor form.

Plenty of mussle and sole will be on show with both hoping to warm the cockles of their supporters.

The hosts do have the edge in this both in the pack and at 6+7.

Plenty of big hits and no plaice for anyone to retreat into their shells. The usual derby clash but a Red victory this time around.
