This week we enter Round 11 and as the table takes shape we've already seen some
hard close fought games ,big wins and also two or three shocks and now the
injuries start to bite most teams.|
Here are this weeks previews.
BRONCOS v. BULLS
The visitors travel south with plenty of confidence after a good Easter
result wise and boosted by the return of their seven.
The Nags however are still losing games and even though they got close
against the Dragons they were well hammered on Easter Monday.
I still think this will be closer than some think but the hosts still lack
the quality needed to get wins on a regular basis.
The visitors will be tested but in the end a comfortable win should be the
Bulls by 14.

TIGERS v. GIANTS
After a shock loss on Friday the visitors bounced back in style with a 60
point win against Widnes.
The hoe downs are cancelled and the moonshine is well and truly gathering
dust as the poor results continue to bite in rock ridge.
After a couple of promising games the wheels have come off for the wagon
train and it wont get better anytime soon as the injuries bite as well.
The Giants will be fired up after a surprise loss at Salford so will hit the
ground running and take the spoils with relative ease.
Giants by 22.

FC v. DRAGONS
The big spenders finally won on Monday after getting spanked in their derby
so their coach has earned a stay of execution for now.
The "Angelic" visitors arrive on the back of a loss against the 12 man
Champs so will be fired up.
Both teams have quality on the injury list and with the visitors the travel
does cause them to be a Jekyl and Hyde team away from home.
However the hosts don't have enough quality across the board IF the Dragons
turn up to play and I think they'll be too determined for the hosts.
Plenty of boos and glum faces in the directors box for the Cod-eads as the
Dragons take the points.

KR v. SAINTS
The hosts get the award for the most pathetic effort on Bank holiday Monday
after shipping in 80+ against the Pies.
the visitors bounced back after their derby defeat and will be looking to
kick on and get more consistency in their performances especially as the
injuries continue to bite.
The local fan base will demand an effort that reflects their good Friday win
rather than the shambles they witnessed last time out.
There is growing unrest with rumours about the Robins Chairman considering
his future and there must be pressure on the Coach as well.
I think the hosts will improve but nowhere near enough to get the win as the
ST's begin to march into form.

RHINOS v. WOLVES
The game of the round with both teams missing big players it should still be
a quality match at HQ.
The visitors bounced back from a shocking defeat against the Vikings to
hammer the Nags so they are scoring plenty but have been surprisingly loose
The Champs have been the opposite in that they've bombed tries for fun but
showed some great steel and much improved defence but saying that discipline
is a problem.
There's more than enough quality on show to prevent a long winded pre-match
moan about who's missing by the Sky team and I think the players on the
pitch will put on a good show.
A tough game to call that can go either way but I think the hosts steel in
defence gets the win but only just.
Rhinos by 4.

VIKINGS v. REDS
The hosts have got some very god wins thus far but have also had one or two
hidings so its a bit of a guess which team will turn up.
Its obvious the visitors are still playing catch up but still lack any real
quality other than causing the odd shock and the Coaching situation hasn't
helped them either.
I actually think both teams will go for it and although it might not be one
for the purists I can see plenty of points but the hosts taking the win.
Vikings by 10.

WARRIORS v. WILDCATS
The hosts have been pretty impressive thus far and look to be on a roll and
full of confidence which is bad news for the out of sorts visitors.
The Puddy Cats will travel hoping to reverse their losing streak and to be
fair they are capable of some big wins when they get it right but that isn't
happening at the moment and defensively they just don't look strong enough
at the moment.
The ruthless hosts will be tested but nowhere enough to cause them any
