It's back to the weekly grind of SuperLeague this week after eight teams had the Weekend off
for the Challenge Cup semi finals.|
Here are this weeks previews.
BRONCOS v. RHINOS
After back to back games v wakey the Champs have to travel down the M1 to
the pub team of SL and face a side in serious decline and even less
confidence after their 70-0 mauling in the Cup.
The Champs are starting to get their injured players back and go into this
one on the back of doing the double in 2 tough encounters v the Puddy cats.
The switch to thursday will surely reduce an already fairly low crowd even
further but after the sad news this week that Rhinos Legend and firm favourite Graham Murray has passed away I expect the Champs to up the gears
and show no mercy for the woeful Nags.
It's going to be a long night for the hosts.

FC v. VIKINGS
After coming through their tough CC semi after virtually getting written off
by anyone and everyone the Cods welcome one of the worse defences in SL.
The visitors should be fresh after a week off but I doubt that was enough to
shore up a poor defence.
The Hosts will be more buoyant than ever but if they take it easy the
visitors are capable of scoring points.
Although the visitors may threaten and score points they don't have the
defence to take the spoils in this one and I'm sure the trawler mob will
have revenge in mind also.

WARRIORS v. KR
After the ease of last weeks cup win the Crusty hosts face a tougher
opponent this week when the red half of the reef sail into the Pie Dome.
The Robins have had some great wins this year and they are growing
confidence whilst showing some steel and skill.
However the Pies at home are as hard as it gets and with their eyes firmly
on regaining top spot i doubt the visitors can challenge for the win.
It will be tough but the visitors lack quality to get the spoils here.

DRAGONS v. SAINTS
After winning the derby and the Dragons indifferent home form the plastic
scousers can go into this one brimming with confidence.
They Saints will be extremely confident of building a winning run here as
other teams have shown the hosts are much more easily rattled at home this
The game will be close and the hosts pack are sure to make it brutal but
they are lacking the winning mentality this year and I think an away win is
on the cards.

TIGERS v. WOLVES
The new Coach has certainly improved the hosts but not enough to win this
Wire travel to rock ridge on the back of a poor performance in their CC
defeat and will be fired up for a backlash.
The Tiggers can be hard to beat at home if they start well and gain momentum
but i doubt they have enough over the full 80 to get the win.

GIANTS v. REDS
Despite a morale boosting win against the Dragons the visitors don't have
enough quality to challenge in this one.
The hosts are top of the SL on merit and with the Pies and Wire still
breathing down their necks i can't see them slipping up here.
Expect a comfortable win for the home team and more points in their +

WILDCATS v. BULLS
After two close defeats to the Champs the hosts desperately need to win this
to keep their top 8 hopes alive.
the visitors just cant win games and after this weeks revelations of more
money woes when their squad were not paid i doubt they have the resolve to
match last years steel and determination.
It will be a tough encounter because both teams are desperate but i expect
the home side to kick on and get back to winning ways.
