rhinoms Superleague XVIII Previews - Round 15
Posted by southstander on May 17 2013 - 07:54:05

by rhinoms

Monday Night football is back as the Rhinos play host to the Saints with both sides keen to shake off losses in their most recent outings.

There is a whole weekend of rugby to be played before that though starting tonight with the Bulls at the Reds, the Giants at the Vikings and in the televised game the Wolves play host to Hull FC.

The Tigers new coach takes them to the South of France, London will look to make it two on the bounce at home to Wigan and KR entertain the Wildcats.

Read more here....

After a week off for the CC fifth round we are back into Superleague action with the race for the top eight set to go up a gear or two as we get into the second half of the season.

Here are this weeks previews.

REDS v. BULLS

Despite plenty of talk from Dr Koukash the hosts squad is still way short on quality and even the visit of the Bulls who themselves are on a losing run won't disguise that.

The visitors will see this as a perfect chance to return to winning ways after a poor run of results which included a cup exit to the lowly Broncos. Both teams will be desperate for a winning boost but i expect the visitors to have just enough to take the spoils.

A tough game for both teams but the visitors have that extra edge for me.

VIKINGS v. GIANTS

Both teams go into this with suspensions after well earned wins in their respective CC games.

However the visitors were far more impressive in their resounding defeat of the Champs whilst the hosts played out an expected routine win against lower league opposition.

The Vikings have had a much better season than last year and on their day are capable of shocks but this week they come up against a Giants team who are starting to show that maybe they are the real deal and not the pretenders they've shown to be in the past.

A gallant effort by the home side but they lack the quality to beat a top three team and the Giants are just that and in form.

Giants by 16.

WOLVES v. FC

This could be a great game and looks like one of the games of the weekend so at least SKY have picked well for fridays live coverage.

The hosts are starting to step up after a bumpy run and crushed the third placed Giants last time out in SL.

The visitors are building in confidence especially after getting some of their better players out of the treatment room and onto the paddock namely big signings Ellis and Holdsworth.

This should be a belter but home advantage is key and whilst I expect a decent effort from the Trawler boys they are not up to top 4 standard and I think they'll fall short against real contenders finding their form.

DRAGONS v. TIGERS

The week off will have given the new Coach some extra time to assess the Tiggers squad he's taken over whilst the hosts had a routine unopposed training session against the York club in the CC.

A tough task awaits the visitors after the hosts lost a home game against 12 men AGAIN in SL so they'll be hurting from that.

Whilst the news that Clarke and Chase will remain Tiggers for the immediate future will boost the duelling banjos they still lack quality in numbers and depth.

The visitors will give it a go but i expect the Dragons to burn them this week.

BRONCOS v. WARRIORS

The Nags have had a couple of great results beating the forlorn ST's and then knocking the struggling Bulls out of the CC so they'll be buzzing and ready to play.

For the Pies they just go from win to win whoever is in the 17 and although they've lost their 6 and 7 for a while they still have talisman Rat Boy and the likes of Farrell and Charnley to get the job done.

It may not be the hammering many will expect but the visitors and league leaders are far too good for the confident hosts.

KR v. WILDCATS

This could be a cracking game both teams have injuries but are capable on their day.

The hosts just didn't have enough in their CC game and the same applies to the puddy cats so now all focus is on a top 8 challenge.

Both coaches will be feeling the pressure bit I think Agar has more time and faith on his side than his opposite number Mr whinercock.

With Boom forward Paterson suspended and the growing unrest amongst the locals i think this is primed for the visitors to pile on the woe.

A pretty close game but I think an away win is on the cards and that could seal the home coaches departure.

RHINOS v. SAINTS

It's a return to Monday night SL and the 1st game is at HQ between two sides desperate for the two points for very different reasons.

The Champs return to home soil on the back of another deserved loss at the hands of the Giants and they know they didn't perform at all.

The visitors really need some kind of confidence boost to get their SL season back on track and without Lomax and Roby to name just two of their absentees they have struggled big time.

The weekend off will have given Brown extra time to get some combinations more in sync and i think they'll give us a tough match.

It's all about bouncing back for Sir Kev and co and to be fair they've responded well to losses this year and I think we'll grind the visitors down to ensure a return to winning ways.

NOTE-This Monday sees the Rhinos u19's revert to the curtain raiser matches at HQ v their Saints counterparts so get there early and cheer on the unbeaten next generation.
