Just as we are catching our breath after a great start to the Easter double
fixture bonanza Part II is already upon us.|
Here are Bank Holidays previews.
BULLS v. REDS
After a hard fought draw against the Champs the hosts welcome the team who
surprised everyone with their victory over the table topping Giants.
The Reds will be very confident after a great win whereas the hosts will
feel good after a last gasp try earned them a point at Headingley.
The hosts will expect to win this despite the upturn in the Reds form and I
think they'll just have too much despite a good effort by the Reds if they
maintain that confidence they showed on Thursday night.

DRAGONS v. RHINOS
A tough trip for the Champs after a hard fought derby on Thursday but the
hosts played the day after getting a close win in London so have had to
travel as well.
Missing Webb and Dereau is a big blow for the hosts but they still carry a
huge pack and have strike out wide and are extra tough at home.
The Champs were visibly deflated after conceding a last minute try that cost
them both points last time out so expect a fired up and determined Blue 'n'
I think this will be the closest game of the round with two packs ready to rip
in and then its a shoot out between the two back units.
I reckon we can just get the job done after our great Play Off win there
last season we know how to do it tough and have the strength to face the
mental and physical test that awaits.

GIANTS v. VIKINGS
After getting beat by the Superleague strugglers last week the hosts will be
desperate to get their top four challenge back on track when the unfancied
Vikings visit the Tetleys stadium.
The Visitors along with Salford cause
d a huge upset when they comfortably
beat close rivals the highly rated Wire.
This is a big test to see if the hosts can bounce back but also if the
Vikings can produce back to back huge wins.
The second game in four days comes into consideration and think that's where the
hosts will show more strength and just take the points.
Giants by 10.

KR v. WARRIORS
A clash of two big winners from the derby day round at Craven park.
Both were worthy and comprehensive winners over their nearest rivals and
will be buzzing going into this one.
This is a tough away trip and it isn't made easier after the short
turnaround especially with both teams missing crucial players.
Despite a confident home side I think they lack the depth to absorb the
injuries they've sustained especially IF it has cost them Dobson and Burns.
The Pies look good ,confident and continue to show that their Younger squad
members are comfortable at this level.
The visitors just have that bit more quality and I think they will get the
Pies by 10.

SAINTS v. TIGERS
Despite injuries and unpredictable form the last place you want to visit
after a bitter derby loss is Langtree park.
The hosts put in a credible performance but were obviously below the level
of their opponents and that will hurt.
The wagon train wobble into town well and truly on a downward spiral and the
squad news isn't good either with at least five of their first seventeen missing.
After getting humped at home they will have to suffer again here because
they have nothing capable of getting a win here.
Another long 80 minutes for the visitors.

WILDCATS v. FC
The triumphant hosts will be fired up and hoping to get back to back wins
when the big spending Chumps of Superleague trawl into town.
After another big defeat its hard to see their coach lasting much longer or
what the visitors actually have that made so many tip them to challenge for
the Trophies this year.
There's also definitely no sign whatsoever despite the injuries what made
their naive big mouthed owner to tell everyone they would be world class.
The home side look to be at full strength and that will give them that extra
edge in this one as the visitors are lacking quality and fight if they are
behind after an hour.

WOLVES v. BRONCOS
Both lost their respective games on Friday but the hosts will be fired up
after losing to the unfancied Vikings whereas the Nags did well despite a 6
Tony Rea seems to have made his team more competitive as we expected but
they are still way behind the hosts in terms of quality and potential.
The visitors will have a dig but they cant and wont match what the hosts
throw at them.
