Home Banker Against Broncos
Posted by southstander on April 12 2013 - 08:43:22

Debut Chance
The Broncos visit Headingley for tonights Superleague XVIII round twelve fixture with just two wins and a draw to show for their 2013 efforts and having conceeded one hundred points over their last two matches (versus the Bulls and Wolves).

The Rhinos thrashed them on both occasions that the sides met last year, scoring over fifty points in each match.

This is exactly the kind of game where the Rhinos take their eye off the ball and come a cropper.

We preview the game, read more here...

It was great to see Zak Hardaker back last week and he played as though he'd never been away, an exceptional talent. We may get chance to see an emerging talent as stand-off Liam Sutcliffe has been drafted into the nineteen.P> Leeds are without Delaney and Vickery who are both still injured and Ryan Bailey will serve the second of his harsh four match suspension. Ian Kikre is back in contention after missing out last week against the Wolves and Singleton is retained within the nineteen.

It's a nineteen with an embarrassment of playmakers; Sinfield, Burrow, McGuire, Sutcliffe, Ward and Hardaker can all create something from nothing. The full squad is; Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, McShane, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Sutcliffe, Kirke, Clarkson, Achurch, Moore, and Singleton.

Tony Rea is back in charge over a struggling Broncos who are not playing to their full potential. He does boast Superleague XVIII's leading scorer in the form of Kieran Dixon who has found his way over the line fourteen times this season and will be a key dangerman.

Stalwart Tony Clubb picked up a nasty knee injury against the Bulls last weekend and is out for up to eight weeks leading to the call up of Will Lovell. Rea can also call on the services of ex-Hull KR hooker Ben Fisher.

He names a nineteen of; Bailey, Bryant, Channing, Colbon, Cook, Dixon, Dollapi, Fisher, Gower, Hurst, Kaufusi, Lee, Lovell, Melling, Randall, Rodney, Sarginson, Wheeldon, and Witt. It's a side that really should be causing some mischief amongst the top sides rather than struggling to just two wins in eleven outings this season.

The Rhinos won both games against the Broncos last season. The game at Headingley was on the 9th April and the Rhinos won by a very convincing 52-10 thankf to four tries from Hall and two apiece for Hardaker and Jones-Bishop. We went down to the big smoke later in the year and won by an even more convincing 58-12 and this time it was McGuire who increased his tally with four tries, taking his total against the Broncos to twenty-six.

The Rhinos have won twenty-nine of the regular rounds meetings and the Broncos just nine, with one game being a draw.

Leeds have seven points out of the last available ten whereas the Broncos have just three. Prediction
Rhinos 46 06 Broncos

Surely there can only be one winner of this one?

The bookies have given the visitors a twenty-six point start on the coupon and very few pundits will give the Broncos the slightest glimmer of a chance of an upset. It's no surprise that SKY have ignored this game.

The forecast suggests that there the chance of rain all day and that temperatures may drop as low as four degrees this evening so don't go to the game dressed for summer.

I really think that this should be one of those games where we improve our points difference and with Bradford playing Wigan there is the chance that we could improve our league position by the end of the weekend.

Enjoy the game.
