rhinoms Superleague XVIII Previews - Round 14
Posted by southstander on May 02 2013 - 07:21:11

by rhinoms

We are now officially into the run up to Old Trafford as we wnter the second half of the regular season.

There are some great looking matches for the weekens with the Rhinos travelling to the Bulls looking to banish all memories of the draw that they snatched from the jaws of victory earlier in the year.

The Broncos trip to Hull looks intriguing, but the game of the round has to be the visit of the Giants to Warrington as second takes on third.

This weekend we hit Round 14 of the Superleague season and start the "2nd half" of the regular season.

Here are this weeks previews.


The Champs head up the road for the second derby of the season and after losing a lead late on that cost them a point in the last one they will be determined to have the match sewn up earlier.

For the hosts they are still learning under their new coach and have had some good wins but also come up short when facing quality opposition in form.

The form guide points to an away win but experiences says that counts for nothing in these games but I do think the Champs will have too much pace for the hosts then its a case of by how many.

However we know every team in SL raises it's efforts against the Champions none more so than the Bulls so I expect a tough game but an away win.

The visitors gallop into the KC on the back of ending an eleven year losing curse last time out against the forlorn ST's but meet a team finding confidence and expecting their big money signing to play.

Coach Gentle must have saved his job by the skin of his fins and now he needs his team to kick on and show some consistency and style that matches their big mouthed owners press statements.

Although they lost last week the hosts were by no means disgraced and matched the Pies with three trys each so I expect them to beat the visitors and do it well. The visitors may arrive confident but still lack too much quality for me to trouble the home side.

Looking at the home sides unavailable list and bearing in mind their defeat to the Broncos last week the Vikings have as good a chance as they've ever had in recent years of an away win.

However when you see how the lost to Wakey at home it's doubtful they'll get the points this week either.

Out of the Cup and struggling for players and form the home side are in a big transitional phase but should still have just enough for the win IF they aren't feeling sorry for themselves.

There could be quite a few points scored in this one but I think the hosts will just scrape the win.

Another win insecond gear at the Pie dome for the hosts this week when Noble brings his mis-fits to town.

A lot of the talk will be about the NRL bound Pies players and how quick Nobby can build a competitive Reds team after a close win last week rather than the actual game.

The visitors don't have the quality or the structures to give the hosts any serious problems irrespective of their new coaches' CV.

The hosts finally got that winning feeling back last week as the visitors once again lost at home to 12 men and a bias penalty count.

Despite taking confidence from last weeks win the home defence is still pretty suspect and this week the challenge in terms of quality is much bigger.

Although still missing their General Dereau the visitors have a huge pack and strike out wide more than capable of getting of the win.

The hosts won't give up and are desperate for wins but the task is just too big this week.

Dragons by 10.

If the rumours are true the hosts should have a new head Coach very soon so this could be Orr's last game in charge.

For the visitors although they fought hard they were well beaten last week by the quality and pace of the Champions so they arrive bruised and determined to bounce back.

On paper cas have a reasonable first choice 17 with one or two quality players in there but it's not happening for them and again I expect them to lose this week.

It will be a close game but the hosts lack quality and the doubts and doom that surround the place won't help either.

A massive game and another example why SKY's schedule makers are clowns because in their wisdom we get Wakey v Dragons instead of this 2nd v 3rd clash.

This promises to be a belter if both sides are on their game and they are evenly matched across the board but the Wire do have the big game experience and Trophy winning mentality the hosts lack.

It really could go either way but I think TS's men win it because of the big game success they've had in recent years but they'll pushed all the way.

A tough fast uncompromising battle in store but the Giants will be cut down a size.
