rhinoms Superleague XIX Previews - Round 2
Posted by southstander on February 18 2014 - 17:28:57

by rhinoms

It's a packed weekend of rugby league with some mouthwatering games.

The Rhinos welcome Tony Smiths' Wolves to Headingly with the visitors still smarting from their lesson at the hands of the Saints. The Red Devils will be looking for a big points haul at whipping boys, the London Broncos, and the Giants will be looking to add to the Robins woes.

Oh, and don't forget, the pride of a nation rests in Wigans hands....that should be interesting.

After week 1 the likes of the Giants and Rhinos have opened with convincing away wins but the ST's really laid down a marker by destroying some peoples favourites Wire on their own patch which showed they are going to be serious contenders this year.

This week it's week 2 with a WCC thrown in as a bonus.

Here are this weeks Previews.

WILDCATS v. BULLS

The un-fancied hosts really proved they shouldn't be under-rated after a narrow defeat at the big spending devils.

The visitors started brightly and actually lead the game three times v Cas at home but as we all knew they weren't good enough in the end.

Whilst i doubt either will trouble the top 8 places this already could set the tone for avoiding a bottom two slot with the Nags favourites for one its between these two and Cas for the other spot in my opinion.

I think home advantage, better recruitment and the spirit the Puddy cats showed last week will do them good whereas the visitors are on a downward spiral which wont stop this week.

A tough game in prospect that may at times lack serious quality but the desperation of both Clubs should add to the spice on offer.

RHINOS v. WOLVES

The game of the weekend takes place at HQ when the Rhinos get their home campaign up and running against the visiting Wolf pack.

For the Blue 'n' Amber their class and pace out wide eventually told last week when they ran in 6 unanswered second half trys against the shell shocked Robins.

However the complete opposite can be said of the visitors who after a early score were blown away by the rampaging ST's.

I expect a much closer and tougher game this week with TS no doubt ripping into his squad to get them ready to react this week but again i see our class out wide taking the spoils for the hosts.

SAINTS v. FC

ST's v FC. The hosts will be oozing confidence after the way they destroyed Wire last week whereas the visitors will have to improve ten fold to have a chance after an unconvincing stuttering win against the lack-lustre Dragons last week.

I fully expect a repeat of last week for the ST's with their power up front laying the platform for Walsh to lead his team to another win.

The Cod botherers may compete at times and even grab 1 or 2 scores along the way but they lack the quality and structure to get anything out of this match.

BRONCOS v. DEVILS

The less said about the whipping boy hosts opening game the better they were annihilated and i very much expect another convincing defeat this week when the big spending Devils head south.

Last week was a wake up call for Nobby and his mouth-piece owners expensive project so i think they'll want to be more composed and improve on their defence at the very least which shouldn't prove difficult given the opposition.

GIANTS v. KR

Fresh after a week off the hosts will feel their season can finally get up and running when they entertain the red half of Cod City.

After a convincing hard fought win at the double winners 2 wks ago Mono-Brow and co will have plenty of confidence going into this match.

Already the visiting red and white army are missing new signing Weyman after his sh##-house tackling technique cost him a two game ban and i doubt their weakness out wide will have improved enough to get a win here.

Another Giant win and more questions than answers left for the Robins.

Giants by 14.

TIGERS v. DRAGONS

A solid away win last week for DP's new look Tiggers and with the likes of Daryl Clark leading the way Roger Chase will son be forgotten by the banjo duelling faithful.

The visitors were poor last week even though they showed some reasonable quality and spirit to mount a so near yet so far late come-back.

The home side will look to build on their win and should have too much for the visitors who will hopefully missing oxygen thief Elima for a long time.

For the visitors if they keep the scores close they do have some decent players but defensively i think they have too much to fix in just one week and I think they'll come up short again.

WCC: ROOSTERS v. WARRIORS

It's finally happened a WCC in Oz and fair play to all involved in getting it sorted.

After a poor home defeat and a convincing friendly win against an under strength the Kiwi version of the Warriors the visitors don't seem the best prepared.

I wont write them off completely but its a tough ask to get the trophy this time around.

The hosts will be ready and looked a very strong team when winning their GF last year and with SBW leading the way the star studded Chooks should have just too much quality.

I think it will be brutal at times & the Pies will get stuck in and give it their al but come up just short.
