After a week off for the Challenge Cup we return to the weekly grind of the Superleague and this week it's round eleven.|
Here are this weekís previews.
SAINTS v. BRONCOS
After three defeats on the spin which included a derby pasting at home and a comprehensive cup exit the host will be glad to have the worse team in the comp visiting.
A few injuries shouldnít have any bearing on what should be a straight forward win for the hosts with the best the visitors can hope for is to keep the score respectable.

RHINOS v. WARRIORS
The game of the weekend as the League Leaders welcome the resurgent Pies to HQ.
The hosts are in fine form and will be confident after a resounding win in the cup against the STís but it came at a price with HB/9 Burrow breaking his collar bone, and with Aiton still missing long term itís the only chink in the Rhinos armour.
The visitors are starting to hit form and scoring points for fun so will also be in a confident mood it promises to be an absolute cracking fixture.
It could go either way but home advantage and the Blue Ďní Ambers quality defence should be just enough to get the win.

DRAGONS v. DEVILS
After their respective cup exits both teams will be desperate to get their top eight contention form up and running.
Neither team have the strongest defence around but both are capable of scoring points which makes this a potentially entertaining game of attacking RL.
The visitors are still very much yet to gel and with Coach Harris still early into his reign I donít think they will be coherent enough to get a much needed win irrespective of the DRís online rants.
A morale boosting win for the hosts as they look to challenge for the play-off spots.

BULLS v. WOLVES
Dulls v Wire.
After a morale boosting comeback Cup victory the hosts will be hoping to start winning SL games when Tony Smiths team visit Odslum.
The visitors just canít get any sustained form going in the League but a cruise in the Cup against Donny should have helped their miss firing attack gain confidence.
I think will be closer than many predict and the arrival of Pitts and Arundel will boost the home sides thread bare squad but they still lack quality and this will again be exposed by the visitors.

GIANTS v. TIGERS
Another cracking fixture as last yearís LLS winners welcome the surprise package of 2014 when the 2nd placed Tigers come to town.
The host should be fresh after a week off but the visitors were hardly tested during their cup cruise against the Eagles.
The Giants will see this as a chance to close the gap on the top 3 and hopefully build some confidence and kick start their top four challenge.
The visitors are extremely confident and playing some cracking RL as they sit deservedly in the top 2 and will see this as a chance to put another marker down to rubber stamp their own contenders credentials.
I think the week off will have the hosts fired up and although the visitors are certainly capable of winning I think home advantage and a desperate Giants team will see the points stay at the Galpharm.

FC v. WILDCATS
Both sides should be fresh after the weekend off but the visitors will hope to have used that time well as they continue to struggle to gel as a team after so much squad upheaval.
The hosts are playing some god RL but still lack real quality to challenge for a top 4 spot but will definitely be targeting top 6 berth and will see this as a must win if they are to be taken seriously.
I just donít see the visitors having enough with or without the ball to get the win so it may just come down to damage limitation.
A solid win for the hosts as they look to climb up the League.

KR v. VIKINGS
The Robins will be looking to close the gap on the visitors and jump into the top 8 when the Vikings visit.
Both teams had good and bad Easter results but the hosts had a week off while the visitors were ending the big spending Devilsí season.
These are two well matched teams who are capable of some cracking RL on their day but not quite serious Trophy challengers.
This potentially could be a high scoring end to end match but as with many fixtures this week I think home advantage will be key.
You could toss a coin to decide the outcome but I think the Robins will just have enough to take the spoils and squeeze into the top eight.
