This week its Round twenty-four and time is running out for some teams to get a place in
the top eight.|
Here are this weeks previews.
RHINOS v. VIKINGS
The Champs return to HQ after a narrow win in the Red half of cods-vile last
The fast improving visitors went close last week and will hope to catch the
hosts of guard and with one eye on Wembley.
With the CC final 2 wks away the hosts should be looking to lift the
intensity and begin their build up with a convincing performance.
I think the visitors will miss the influence of the on loan Mcshane (banned)
but i dont think they'll be as easy to beat as earlier in the year.
Hopefully the hosts will hit the ground running and in full flow and put
this game to bed early but i expect a couple of in game blips but the win
should be secured.

REDS v. GIANTS
The Reds have really hit a wall and their top eight hopes are all over so its
pride only at stake for them.
The Giants have timed their return to winning ways just about right and they
should have plenty of confidence going into this one.
A team with little to play for are always dangerous especially at home so
whilst the visitors will be confident they cant take the result for granted.
A decent battle but the extra quality and having something to play for will
se the Giants take the points.

BULLS v. KR
The Red Mullets are this weeks visitors to RFL balti bowl.
As the saga rumbles on and on Coach Potter is at the end of his tether and
this could be his last game in charge.
You can only run on adrenaline so long and i see the hosts is running out
especially after the points deduction and still no takeover.
The home side will get stuck in because it's what RL teams do but i think
the visitors will have more desperation after their one point defeat last week
in a game they were controlling at half time.
Some big hits and an end to end match in prospect but the visitors have too
much quality and the hosts are running on empty.

WOLVES v. WARRIORS
The game of the round at the HJ.
The battle for top spot is purely between these two and after beating the
plastic scousers last week the home side will be extremely confident this
After another training run at the Pie dome Hock of the dead and co will get
real test this week and i think it will be a belter.
TS will have his team primed for this and expect no tinkering with selection
in this no holds barred encounter.
A cracking match and some great battles all over the park but i think home
advantage and the tough fixture last week will give the Wolves the bite they

TIGERS v. BRONCOS
The most pointless game of the weekend involving both teams who can't wait
for the season to end.
After another battering the fiddles duelling days are over for 2012 and
cotton eyed joe is locked in the barn.
Coach Rea has improved his team a lot quicker than many thought he would me
included and they arrive on the back of the biggest comeback in SL history.
Another loss for Sheriff basil and his six fingered posse.

FC v. DRAGONS
This week the "Mouth of Humber" Pearsons pretenders welcome the Dragons.
After a shock defeat last week Trent Robinson will demand to see his Dragons
fire once more as they come under pressure for fourth spot.
Who knows what to expect from the hosts but no doubt it will include a
clueless owner telling everyone and anyone how his team will dominate SL
Expect the usual "excuses" at full time after another defeat for Gentles
over-rated and never will be's.

WILDCATS v. SAINTS
The on fire hosts welcome the wounded scousers this week and will be
For Roby and co its a case of bouncing back after a comprehensive loss last
After blasting their local rivals the Puddy Cats will have their eyes on the
top 8 and the inspirational Tim Smith and co could just well do it.
Unfortunately they face a ST's team on the back of a loss and that's never
good especially with 3rd place in their grasp.
I think Wakey will stand up and have a dig no doubts at all but that bit of
quality and pace comes from the visitors.v
