rhinoms Superleague XIX Previews - Round 18
Posted by southstander on June 25 2014 - 18:58:00

by rhinoms

Can the Warriors re-take top-spot with a home win against their arch-enemies?

Can James Lowes inspire his new side to a win against a resurgent Wolves?

Will the Dragons once again be struck down with travel sickness when they go to Headingley to take on the Rhinos?

Can the Wildcats capitalise on their sensational win over the Warriors?

This weekend we'll find out as we approach the last third of the regular season.

We preview the action here.....

It’s Round 18 of Superleague this week and with just nine games left the play-off spots are still very much up for grabs with only four points separating 6th to 1st and only three points between 10th and 8th.

Here are this weeks previews.

KR v. GIANTS

The in form Giants head east in fine form and will see this as another fixture where they can keep pace with the top 4 also with the ST’s v Pies derby they will be at the very least 1pt closer to both.

The hosts are 3 points off 8th and really need to maintain the winning form which saw them destroy the lacklustre Dulls last week.

Both sides have big forwards but I think the visitors hold the edge out wide.

WARRIORS v. SAINTS

The game of the round is taking place at the Pie Dome where 1st plays 3rd.

The Pies will be fired up after a shock defeat at Wakey last week and they love nothing better than beating their local rivals.

The league leaders arrive with revenge on their minds and in good form after destroying the stuttering Tigers last week so it promises to be a thrilling clash.

It will be fast ,brutal and a high octane battle across the park but I think the Pies still hold the edge with home advantage and on the back of a defeat they will just have enough to get the win.

TIGERS v. DEVILS

The Tigers have hit a losing streak so will see this home game against the big spending Devils as the perfect fixture especially with their ex home favourite Rangi now playing in Red.

The visitors are 6pts off the top 8 and despite plenty of gobbing off online and in the media their owner should get used to the fact they are also rans this year.

It should be an entertaining clash with both sides having attacking flair but the Tigers hold the cards defensively which should be enough to get back to winning ways.

BRONCOS v. VIKINGS

After three defeats on the bounce the Vikings are losing grip on their top eight spot but a journey south to face the winless Nags will rectify that.

The home side are improving but they are still not good enough for this League and again this week it will be a case of just not being good enough.

A return to winning ways for the visitors and a stronger grip on a play-off spot.

RHINOS v. DRAGONS

After getting back to winning ways away at the Vikings last week the Rhinos return to HQ to face the in form visiting Dragons.

With players returning the home squad is starting to look stronger and their top 2 aspirations are reinforced.

The Dragons have been breathing fire on all who have visited their lair in Perpignan but as we all know they suffer from severe travel sickness.

It should be a good clash and with the game billed as part of the build up to the “Grand Depart” for the Tour De France kicking off in Leeds it should be a carnival atmosphere.

Defensively the home side are still searching for the steel they showed in the first 3rd of the season but they will still have too much quality for the visitors.

Rhinos by 14.

WILDCATS v. FC

After stunning the Pies last week the hosts will be confident when the B+W’s visit.

The visitors are still 3pts off the top 8 and although their gobby owner has gone quiet the top 8 is still a minimum demand on his side.

It should be a close game and with the hosts as good as safe from relegation the pressure is off them and firmly on the visitors.

The Cats are more than capable of causing an upset but the desperation from the visitors should just be enough to see them home and keep Radford employed for at least another week.

FC by 8.

WOLVES v. BULLS

The home side are charging towards the top 4 and have the added incentive of being one of the few teams the visitors have beaten this year.

The visitors arrive on the back of another heavy home defeat but at least they now have the Head Coach position filled as one of their favourite sons Jimmy Lowes takes the helm.

There is usually an upturn in form when any team appoints a new Coach but I doubt it will be quick enough or good enough to stop the hosts comfortably winning & maintaining their charge towards the top 4.
