After Last week saw twelve out of the fourteen SL teams take a break for the England v
Exiles match we get back to the regular SuperLeague season this week.|
Here are this weeks previews.
REDS v. SAINTS
Despite injuries for the visitors and Koucash wasting a reputed 6figure
transfer fee on "top 4 ambitions" Whitehead the Saints should have more than
enough this week.
Whatever £££ the Reds owner throws around it still won't be enough this week
or even this season to prevent a bottom 3/4 finish for his woeful team.
The hosts may put an effort of sorts into this game but the visitors will
claim a vital win.

TIGERS v. FC
Despite some real improvements in form the visitors were well beaten last
time out in France.
For the Tiggers they need to up their efforts for the full 80 and not just
have promising spells here and there.
The games are running out and if the hosts have serious top 8 aspirations
then this is a must win and they have a chance with the injuries and arrival
of a brand new HB for the trawler crew.
This could be an entertaining game and i think the home side are capable of
an upset but they'll need a complete performance to get the points.
I think the time off will help the hosts and see them more organised and
take the spoils in a close game.

DRAGONS v. KR
The hosts will be confident after destroying the B+W half of cods-ville last
time out whilst the Red Mullets will arrive very confident after securing a
shock win against the high flying Giants.
As has been the case for most of the year though you just don't know which
Robins side will turn up and add in the hosts looking to build on their home
form i don't think Dobson and co have enough this week.
Two big packs will make the contest fierce upfront but the host have far
more skill and strike out wide.

BULLS v. VIKINGS
The visitors ran the Pies and Champs close in recent outings but just didn't
have enough to take the points.
The hosts go from one defeat to the next and will be desperate to get a win
and revitalise any top 8 hopes they may still have.
This is another must win for both sides and I think home advantage may just
be the key.
The hosts will need to up the gears and concentration but as we saw last
year they can perform when under serious pressure and I think they'll just
have enough this week.
Old razor blade gargler Betts might fancy his sides chances but once again
he'll be left to bemoan his sides poor luck ,refs calls etc etc.

GIANTS v. RHINOS
After a surprise loss the high flying hosts will see the decimated Champs as
easy meat not least because of their recent record against us.
The visitors will travel knowing they will be written off by all and can
approach this game with the pressure off.
However we've seen many times year after year what happens when we are told
we can't ,won't or shouldn't win a game and as good as Brough, Cudjoe and
Lunt etc have been beware the wounded and written off Rhino.
The young lads are 1 more game experienced and lets not forget despite the
obvious step up in class and pace these u19 lads have lost just one game all
It will take a mammoth effort but if JP, Burrow and JJb lead by example the
rest are capable of getting the win.
Never write off a Rhino.

WILDCATS v. BRONCOS
Despite the arrival of Soward for the nags they are still a poor team and
Wakey will see this as a great chance to get back to winning ways and rack
up the points+ The visitors may compete in spells and the hosts are
vulnerable defensively but they should win this with plenty to spare.

WOLVES v. WARRIORS
The game of the weekend is saved for Monday night RL.
The visitors continue to set the pace and tone for the comp but the hosts
should start upping the gears now and they will see this as a great chance
to cut the league leaders lead at the top.
This promises to be a high paced all action encounter with both sides
For me home advantage is the key and I think that just makes the hosts
slight favourites in a close hard fought war.
