rhinoms Superleague XIX Preview - Round 7
Posted by southstander on March 26 2014 - 13:30:04

by rhinoms

SKY have excelled themselves again this week by picking one walkover (Broncos v. Tigers) and one absolute humdinger (Saints v. Rhinos).

Another draw could be on the cards for the Rhinos as they travel to Langtree Park on Friday night to topple the table toppers Saints in a mouthwatering clash.

The Devils are looking for a back-to-back win at FC while KR entertain a Wakefield side who were unlucky not to get the two points against Saints at the weekend.

The other potential classic of the weekend sees the Giants host the Wolves at the John Smith's.

All in all, a tasty looking rugby league weekend.

We preview the action here.....

As we complete the first quarter of the regular season only two teams remain unbeaten, one of which maintains a 100% record. As if by pre-ordained destiny, those two teams meet this week in a televised top of the table clash.

Here are this weeks previews.

BRONCOS v. TIGERS

For the second week in a row SKY are going to treat viewers to a one sided mis-match as high flying Cas travel south to face the forlorn Broncos.

Despite their winning run coming to an end last week against the big spending Dr's play thing the visitors have started strong and will make sure the hosts feel the backlash.

For the Nags keeping the score respectable will be the only positive they can gain from this fixture.

SAINTS v. RHINOS

The game of the weekend as first meets second as the two old Grand Final adversaries go head to head at Langtree Park.

The gloss has somewhat been tinged with the news of injuries to the likes of Star 7 Walsh & form Centre Turner with suspension hitting form Prop Amor & "Whoop whoop" Wilkin to name a few.

However, it still promises to be a full bloodied entertaining clash and we know only too well not to under estimate the top teams after getting belted more than once in the past when favourites for the win.

I think its going to be an end to end clash with some huge clashes in the middle when old war-horse JP faces Samoan monster Masoe whilst at nine, the quality of Roby still remains a huge threat to the away side.

I think the back line of the visitors is key and where we will secure the win but in a battle royal.

FC v. DEVILS

After finally getting another win the "Marquee Golden Ticket", Devils head east to face a Cod ead team reeling from being nilled at home last time out which resulted in their Coach publicly slating his squad.

Boosted by the return of Roger and beating the undefeated Tiggers the visitors will arrive confident and ready to play but I expect a much improved home side.

Defensively both teams are still off the pace but desperation and home advantage should just see the hosts secure the win and save Radford's job for another week resulting in the good Dr going into an angry tweeting frenzy once more.

WARRIORS v. DRAGONS

After a hard fought mistaken ridden win away at the Wire last week the Pies play hosts to the travel sick Dragons.

Both teams will be more confident especially the visitors who out played the Giants whilst securing their first win last week.

The hosts are still dis-jointed in attack as the new arrivals settle in but are still pretty tough defensively.

I expect the hosts to open up this week and be too fast, too strong and too good for the visitors.

GIANTS v. WOLVES

After two mediocre displays last week I expect two fired up teams going into this clash.

Neither were good enough defensively and woeful offensively so both Coaches will have been putting their squads through the ringer.

This really could go either way especially with Revenge in mind for the hosts for last years play -off defeat after getting "club called".

Although still a decent team i just dont see enough in the visitors to get the win their 1-6-7-9 combo is way off and defensively they look more vulnerable than previous years.

I think the Giants will be too powerful and quick and leave Tony Smith still searching for solutions to get his team back amongst the big hitters.

KR v. WILDCATS

After securing their first win of the year the Robins will be desperate to kick on when the Puddy Cats visit.

The visitors were unlucky after leading Saints for a while and on the receiving end of some "questionable" calls by the officials which have since resulted in two bans.

The hosts have had their own disciplinary issues but were boosted by nilling the rudderless Bulls last week.

It should prove to be a pretty open game given both sides have defensive weakness' but i think the visitors will feel hard done to and bring that to the table this week as extra momentum.

VIKINGS v. BULLS

The host bounced back from the spanking at Headingley to not only beat but nil the Cod eads away from home last week.

For the visitors at least the ownership issues are looking like being finally settled so they can purely concentrate on playing the game.

Betts has his side playing well with a pretty sound defence and despite the weight of "doom and gloom" being lifted I dont see enough quality in the visitors squad to trouble the hosts.

Another pointless journey beckons for the Dulls.
