As we reach round six there are still three teams left unbeaten with two of those
remaining looking to protect 100% win records.|
Here are this weeks previews.
WOLVES v. WARRIORS
The game or the round kicks off this weeks fixtures when the last years 2 GF
teams meet at the HJ stadium.
Both sides have stuttered at times & a good hiding down under in the WCC
still hangs over the visitors but at least both teams are starting to win
Its taking the Double Winners longer than usual to get going and for their
new arrivals to completely gel but they remain a dangerous team even more so
when they click.
For TS his side will see this as their chance to start "putting the record
straight" and also beat a top 6 team at last after losing to ST's and the
Rhinos thus far.
Hopefully it will live up to its potential and we will have an end to end
explosive game of RL however for me home advantage is key and I think Wire
will just have too much.

RHINOS v. BRONCOS
Another bizarre choice of fixture for Sky when the whipping boys visit the
For the hosts a perfect chance to rest anyone with knocks and also rotate
some of their "experienced" pack.
Another hiding for the visitors but a chance for youngsters like Foster and
Minns to show their potential whilst facing their parent Club on loan for
Rhinos by 46.

DRAGONS v. GIANTS
Its the first "Live" home game for then Dragons after a new agreement
between French broadcasters and Sky to show ALL the hosts home games as live
"extras" on the Sky RL schedule.
Unfortunately for the hosts they face a Giants team hitting form and are
likely to dish out good hiding to the fire less Dragons.
Its just not happening for the Catalans suspensions, injuries and pathetic
performances are starting to take their toll with Fakir & Webb bearing the
brunt of their eccentric Chairman.
I think its going to be another Monday morning autopsy for the hosts as they
lack any kind of confidence and quality at the moment and the Giants will
show no mercy.

FC v. VIKINGS
After another late close loss the Cod eads are ready to give someone a
pasting and i think this weeks visitors good be on the receiving end.
The hosts just haven't got a winning run started yet despite being in just
about every game they've lost till the final minutes.
The visitors arrive on the back of a RL lesson when their 100% win record
was blown apart by a quality second half display by the Rhinos last week.
What will also be a major loss from last week will be injuries to Tickle and
one of SL's form 7's Mellor.
I think the visitors will have a dig but injuries will catch up with them

KR v. BULLS
The Robins looked pretty good last at times last week especially during the
first half at the Pie dome so can at least look to build some sort of
The visitors are still reeling from off field Chaos to disjointed mayhem on
it after they suffered a 12 try wipe-out despite the Koukash circus arriving
for a very brief time.
It could actually be a close game both teams lack quality ,consistency and
that killer instinct but the Red half of Cods-ville hold the better cards.

DEVILS v. TIGERS
The big spenders entertain one of the 100%'s when the wagon train heads west
into "Hell" (PMSL).
For the good Dr another defeat last week wasn't good enough and once again
he was chelping to any and all media outlets.
The Tiggers did it again last week securing a late win at home to keep their
momentum going under Coach Powell.
Again this has potential to be a decent game but the hosts are still yet to
gel from 1-17 have a couple of injuries and seriously lack depth.
I expect another "Dr Rant" come Monday morning as the Tigger army show their

WILDCATS v. SAINTS
The hosts have got their season really going and ooze confidence after back
to back thumping wins albeit against the Dragons and pub team Broncos.
For ST's this is the first test of their squad depth as suspension and
injury starts to bite the biggest loss coming at HB with the on fire Walsh
out for 4-6 weeks.
If Wakey get going at home they are tough to beat but they are still trying
to gel a lot of players and aren't over-loaded with quality.
A closer game than many will expect but I doubt the home side has enough
firepower to halt the ST's 100% winning run.
