rhinoms Superleague XIX Previews - Round 4
Posted by southstander on March 06 2014 - 08:19:30

by rhinoms

Round four brings us a mix of mouthwatering clashes and horrible mis-matches.

The Vikings get us underway as they take on the Red Devils in tonights televised match and it should be a belter, as should tomorrows visit of the Rhinos to the John Smith's Stadium to take on the Giants.

Who could pick a winner from Hull FC v. Bradford, Castleford v. Wigan and Wakefield v. Catalans.

On the other hand, Warrington look to have a simple task in London and Saints should cruise to victory at home to Hull KR.

We preview the action here.....

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 missing.

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 it up.

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 pitch.

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 Wire.

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 Dragons.

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 battle.
