This week it's Round 4 and as if by coincidence we are now down to four 100%
records still left standing.|
Here are this weeks previews.
VIKINGS v. DEVILS
Although having only played two games due to the WCC the hosts are one of the
unbeaten four and welcome the big spending pretenders who arrive on the back of
a good old fashioned pasting at the hands of the red hot Saints.
The Vikings will be extremely confident after a late win against last
seasons table topping Giants last week despite have a few 1st choice players
For the big spending Dr's hobby this will be viewed as a chance to put last
weeks televised RL lesson behind them.
It promises to be tougher than many would have thought after last weeks
respective efforts but I think the visitors will just have enough to put a
winning performance in.

GIANTS v. RHINOS
On paper the game of the weekend as the 3/3 Blue 'n' Amber travel west to
face their nemesis of recent seasons when they visit last years LLS winners.
For McBrough and co the season hasn't really kicked on after that impressive
away win in the Pie-Dome in early Feb.
The visitors arrive confident and in form with threats across the team from
the best back line in Superleague.
For the hosts they know how to beat us and beat us well so they will still
have enough confidence going into this game and see it as a chance to get
their season back up and running.
Although recent history points to a home win the 2014 Rhinos are more
threatening than they have been in a while whilst matching that attacking
prowess with tough solid defence.
Its got the potential to be one of the games of the year and I think the
visitors will have just too much of a point to prove and the skill to back

FC v. BULLS
After another close defeat last week the Cod botherers welcome the "how not
to run a SL club" circus.
After another player departure the visitors have managed to sign young gun
Rhinos S/O Sutcliffe on loan with promise of at least one more arrival.
The B+W's will be confident after running ST's and Wire so close that they
have more than enough to take the win off the visitors who have more of
field distractions than almost any other team in Superleague.
We know from the last two years that the Dulls squad are capable of winning in
testing times but I doubt they enough class to get the points this week.
A morale boosting win for the hosts but they will be tested.

SAINTS v. KR
The new look unbeaten hosts are on fire they have youth ,power ,pace and now
their world class nine fit along with a quality seven to lead the team around the
The visitors are riddled with injuries, suspensions and a lack of confidence
after another hiding on their own turf.
The Robins Coach must be hot favourite for the chop and I can see those odds
cut further this week.
A spirited effort but nowhere near enough quality or consistency for the
visitors this week.

TIGERS v. WARRIORS
The other 100% team host the defending double winners this week and they
will be confident of doing a job on the new look Pies.
Coach Powell has done what many experts and pundits doubted he could do and
that's make Cas a wining team without Rangi.
In fact he's gone further than that and got them scoring plenty of points
with threats across his team.
The Pies arrive after a morale boosting win last week helped ease the pain
of being outclassed in Sydney but they are still trying to adapt to the loss
of Rat-Boy and co.
It should be a great game and as close as any of these fixtures have been in
the recent past but I think the visitors will be organised enough to dig in
and get the win they will be desperate for.

BRONCOS v. WOLVES
Another mis-match when the relegation favourites welcome the mis-firing
TS will see this a the perfect fixture for his team to open up and put some
scores on the board.
The host will no doubt have a dig and show some willing but their team is
full of never will be's and promising kids learning their trade.

WILDCATS v. DRAGONS
The Puddy Cats will be hoping to get that winning feeling back after three
defeats when they welcome the heavily injured and suspension ravaged
I think the Dragons Coach is just as much under pressure as Sandercock at KR
and it really is a toss up to see who gets the boot first.
A defeat here and i think the monday morning headlines will see the visitors
bidding Au Revoir Monsieur to their head man.<>P
The hosts will scrap and when they get a roll on at home they are a tough
team to beat and I doubt the visitors have the fire or stomach for that
