rhinoms Superleague XVIII Previews - Round 25
Posted by southstander on August 14 2013 - 10:49:04

by rhinoms

It's tight at the top with Wigan, Warrington and Huddersfield all praying for the other two to slip up and gift them the minor premiership.

It's congested around the bottom of the play-off's too with Bradford and Wakefield still holding on to what is looking increasingly like a forlorn dream of making the top eight and the two Hull sides look to haul up the drawbridge.

It could be an exciting Round twenty-five, but an emotional one at Headingley as they pay tribute to the great Graham Murray.

This week its Round 25 of the SL and with the top places virtually sealed its now a case of those teams trying to get the best position possible within that top eight.

Here are this weeks previews.

WOLVES v. VIKINGS

Despite scoring just short of 40 points last time out the visitors still capitulated and lost the game which highlights their season perfectly an attacking threat but paper thin defence.

After their CC exit the hosts will be looking to build their form for another shot at a GF place and this fixture gives them the chance to go through the gears and rack up the points.

FC v. REDS

After a bruising derby the hosts have a chance to rest some of their better players in prep for the CC final whilst at the same time knowing they should beat the whipping boy Reds with points to spare.

The visitors will take some confidence from a spirited display in defeat against the Champs last week but their lack of quality will as always cost them.

RHINOS v. KR

An emotional night in store for the Blue 'n' Amber as the Club says farewell to a Legend and much loved former Coach Graham Murray.

Both sides have injuries but still plenty to play for within the top eight so it should be an entertaining end to end fixture.

The Robins have shown on many occasions when they get it right they can be a good team in SL but consistency and lack of depth costs them at times.

The hosts have to reign in the emotion of the occasion and concentrate on getting the job done which I think they will ,the young lads have stepped and shown they can handle this level and I expect them to have enough to get the points.

DRAGONS v. WARRIORS

The hosts scraped a win last week against a very average Dulls team but will gain confidence from it.

For the Pies Coach Wane has vowed to select his strongest side available despite the upcoming CC final after last weeks defeat against the table toppers.

I firmly believe if Wigan want to win this and can put the CC aside then they will have too much for the indifferent and sloppy hosts.

It will be tasty amongst the respective packs but the visitors have the creative edge.

BRONCOS v. GIANTS

A perfect game for the visitors to rotate some of their stars and still get a good win.

For the Nags its another 80 minutes of chasing shadows and getting made to look like a pub team.

A cruise for the table toppers without hitting top gear.

Giants by 28.

TIGERS v. BULLS

Both sides have seen top eight ambitions vanish under inconsistency and lack of quality but the hosts will still want to get a good home win.

For the visitors they are looking to next year so I doubt they'll be interested in an 80 minute war of attrition.

The hosts hold the edge creatively but neither team can defend so expect plenty of points but not enough for the visitors.

WILDCATS v. SAINTS

It's been a season of so near yet so far for the hosts in their top 8 quest but they'll be desperate to go out fighting.

For the visitors they need to keep winning and building confidence if they are to have any impact during the play-offs.

It will be a tough game because even though the hosts have nothing to play for they won't lay down and will see this as a good scalp to take.

A tough encounter but the plastic scousers are building some momentum and just have the edge to get to the points.

If you are travelling to a game have a safe journey and enjoy the action.

For the Rhinos fans get down there to HQ and pay tribute to one of our greatest coaches and a true Gent it will be emotional but lets do him and his family proud. RIP Muzza gone but NEVER forgotten.

Thanks for reading.
