This week we enter Round 6 and after the Giants got pasted at home and Wire lost
away, no team remains unbeaten. Nor do we have any looking for their first win
after the Broncos hammered Salford which ultimately cost Coach Veivers his
Here are this weekends previews.
FC v. TIGERS
After a stunning defeat at Widnes the big spenders return home to face a
confident Tiggers who pushed the Pies to the very last minute last time out.
As yet we've had the same old "talk a good game of RL but performances are
very different" from Cods-Ville and although talisman Ellis is yet to play
they can have no excuses fro playing totally inept RL or imploding after an
It's a different story for the Wagon train they roll into town on the back
of decent performances and eye catching results fro the right reasons
despite off field drama.
This really is must win for the hosts not least for the coach who must be
increasingly under pressure after his owners public predictions of the
quality of his side for this year.
A tough game but home advantage should see the big money flops scrape home.

RHINOS v. GIANTS
The defending champs are back at HQ after a great hard fought win away at
ST's our first for over 5yrs and this week we welcome the regular
"pretenders" of SL.
The visitors arrive shell shocked after a good old fashioned pasting against
the Dulls last time out and no doubts their coach will expect 200%
We haven't been too good against the visitors in recent regular SL rounds
and they are certainly on the "we owe em one" list so i'd expect another
gritty defensive effort with enough flair to take the spoils.
I think it will be tougher than some predict not least after last weeks
results but i think we have enough firepower and form to take the points.

WOLVES v. SAINTS
Both teams had to suffer defeats last week and both coaches will demand
improvement unfortunately for the visitors they have too many on the
casualty list to improve enough to get the win here.
Tony Smith as we all know takes defeat badly and he will see this as a
perfect game to get his lads up and running again and back in the winning
It should be entertaining because these games always are but the home side
are just too strong at this moment in time.

VIKINGS v. BULLS
Two confident teams meet up at the Stobart but the home sides impressive win
last week came at a cost and they've lost their six and right centre for while
and with their squad lacking depth it will bite them.
The visitors arrive full of confidence after destroying the unbeaten Giants
last week and although missing 1 or 2 themselves they have too much threat
in the halves and at 9 for the hosts.
An intriguing battle but the visitors hold the cards in this one.

WARRIORS v. DRAGONS
After using their get out of jail card in Cas Vegas last week the hosts
welcome the Dragons to the Pie dome.
The visitors arrive after a comeback win against the puddy cats and hoping
to improve on recent visits when they've imploded.
Whilst the hosts remain a tough team there's no escaping they miss the
quality of Leueui and Finch no mater what coach Wane will say.
This could be a really tough game but that depends on the visitors resolve
and discipline and its a game they could win but I think home advantage and
last weeks scare give the home side the edge.

BRONCOS v. KR
The host have finally won and won in style after hammering Salford last week
they are up and running and confidence will be much better.
This week they face the Jekyll and Hyde of SL one week they blow a 16 point
lead against the Pub team of SL the next they are comprehensively beating
one of the GF favourites.
Which Robins team turn up will be key to this battle and i think the Wire
win last week gives them too much momentum for the hosts to handle.

WILDCATS v. REDS
After an unlucky loss in France last week the Puddy cats return home where
they will be determined to get back on the winning trail when the bottom
For the visitors after the boost of a win and the arrival of the aussie
imports they blew it big time last week and are now coach less.
Whilst their new owner is to be commended for his £££ input maybe leaving
out the publicity stunts and sorting out the mess he inherited would be more
A comfortable win for the hosts and 1 more weekend of woe for the Reds
