We finally hit Round twenty-seven of the regular Superleague season this is the last chance for the
top eight Clubs to gain some momentum, form and confidence before the Play offs
start and for the also rans its a chance to sign off from their respective
seasons with a win and moral boosting effort.|
Here are this weeks previews.
WARRIORS v. RHINOS
Who would of thought just a couple of rounds ago this would be a straight
shoot out for third spot?
After the much changed Pies lost to the Cod-eads and the Champs managed to
grind out a win against a dogged Dragons outfit its come down to the last 80
minutes to decide 3rd and 4th.
The Champs travel West boosted by the return of messrs Delaney and JJB
whereas the host welcome back a host of first choice stars after their week
Both teams will be rusty for various reasons but it still should be a good
old fashioned no holds barred game of RL.
I think the Rhinos have to step up this week after a couple of below par
efforts whereas the hosts will be confident they have more than enough to
get the win.
An entertaining and brutal match expected but I think the Blue 'n' Amber
will want to lay a marker down before the serious stuff starts next week.

FC v. SAINTS
Although they will be boosted by their away win at the pie-dome last week
the reality is they beat a reserve side by one point.
The visitors are finally starting to resemble a decent RL team again
although last weeks loss to Wire will hurt they showed good spirit to mount
a comeback of sorts and make a game of it.
No matter how much gobbing off their owner or fans do I'm still not
convinced they are contenders and think the visitors will be too strong.

REDS v. VIKINGS
The last game for the Dross that is the Salford team 2013 before the new era
of Kokrash's revolution.
The Vikings have improved this year and will want to end on a winning note
before they call time on their season and I expect an away win.

DRAGONS v. WOLVES
Whilst both teams will want to win and show some form neither can finish any
higher so there may be some squad changes.
The Dragons just haven't fired this year they failed to handle their
injuries and have missed that creative spark more often than not.
I think the packs will make it a battle but the visitors class should

BULLS v. GIANTS
The Hub cap winners will want to continue their momentum whilst the home
side have already written off this year under another cloud of ££ issues.
The host just don't have the quality to compete which was highlighted last
week when losing to the pub team from down south.

KR v. BRONCOS
Both teams had surprise results last time out the visitors grabbing a rare
away win whilst the hosts mis-fired and showed their all too familiar
The hosts have lost their six for the season which is another blow and should
make their play off impact minimal but they should have too much for

WILDCATS v. TIGERS
Despite the local rivalry all that's at stake is pride the visitors arrive
knowing their squad is as good as dismantled for next year whereas the hosts
have had their regular deja vu of ££ issues so who knows who will line for
As daft as it may sound I still think it will be a battle these two really
dislike each other and will be wanting to end their years with a positive
win against their bitter rivals.
Wakey look shot whereas the Tiggers have that carnival approach with an open
pressure free style of RL so I expect an away win.
