rhinoms Superleague XIX Previews - Round 19
Posted by southstander on July 02 2014 - 17:55:48

by rhinoms

Last weekend was a stonker of a Round for Superleague and at the end of it the competition is as close as ever.

Saints grabbed a great win up the road at Wigan, the Wildcats let slip a win and ended up with a draw, and the Rhinos snatched a victory from the Catalans when all their visitors had to do was hold onto the ball.

What will Round ninteen hold as we head into the nitty gritty with most things still to play for (*excluding London and Bradford). We preview the action here.....

This week we hit Round 19 of the regular season and it’s still all to play for from twelfth to first with the bottom two very much done and dusted here are this weeks previews.

VIKINGS v. TIGERS

A tough away trip for the Tigers after they scraped a last minute return to winning ways after a drop in form.

The home side cruised to the win down south and will have renewed confidence on their own patch.

Both sides score points and play a fast skilful brand of RL so the old cliché of defence winning games will be key here and I think the visitors hold the edge.

It should be a very good game with plenty of points in it but I think the wagon train hold the edge especially at 9.

FC v. WOLVES

After scraping a last minute point away at Wakey the B+W under achievers welcome the in form Wire to Cods ville.

The Wolves head east after 8 straight wins and looking a very strong contender for the GF but FC have taken the spoils as the underdogs when these two have met in the past.

The visitors arrive confident but will also be cautious once bitten and all that but although the home side will tough it out for an hour or so they lack serious quality to win this one.

The Wire march on and for the hosts 2015 can’t come soon enough.

WILDCATS v. RHINOS

Both sides had very different last minute emotions last week the hosts were pegged back for a last gasp draw whereas the Rhinos performed a smash and grab when beating the Dragons.

The hosts are showing a consistent upturn in form under Rookie Coach Webster and will love nothing better than beating their neighbours in front of the T.V. cameras.

The Blue ‘n’ Amber know they need some big improvements across the park but more so in defence where their 2014 steel looks to be evaporating over the last few weeks.

We know it will be a tough end to end battle which may again come down to who holds their nerve in the last seconds but I think the visitors hold the aces out wide.

GIANTS v. DEVILS

The hosts are in good form, keeping pace with the top 4 and after watching last weeks win v HKR getting more than their fair share of “Calls from the officials”.

The visitors are showing what everyone knew outside the Club in that you win nothing with Mercenaries ,has beens ,never will be’s and buying a team from scratch..

Whilst the visitors have some good players on their day they don’t have a “Team” and once they are put under pressure they crack which will happen again this week..

The arrival of Kevin Locke is huge for the visitors but as they are finding out with Rangi one man does not make a team in RL..

BRONCOS v. WARRIORS

The hosts are the sacrificial lamb for a Pie backlash after they lost the Derby so expect a big win for the visitors.

BULLS v. DRAGONS

After a good old fashioned humping in his first game in charge new Coach Lowes will be desperate for a better effort when he returns to his spiritual hole.

The Dragons played some quality stuff last week at H.Q and thought they had recorded a famous victory but two last minute brain farts coast them dearly.

The visitors will arrive with revenge for the CC defeat in their minds but also determined to show that last week was no fluke and they are over their travel sickness.

More pain for Jimmy and co but by a smaller margin (baby steps).

KR v. SAINTS

The League Leaders travel east cock-a-hoop after gaining revenge on their bitter rivals when winning at the Pie-Dome last week.

For the Robins they can once again feel aggrieved that certain calls went against them which proved costly in defeat against the Giants last week.

It should be a good game the hosts are desperate for wins if they are to trouble the top 8 but on the flip side the Scousers have the Rhinos breathing down their necks for top spot with the other top 5 not far behind.

It should be a good game and how they visitors adapt without string puller Walsh could determine if they win or lose but they do have the confidence from last week.

The hosts will have a dig and make it uncomfortable for the ST’s but as we all know the cream always rises to the top.
