rhinoms Superleague XIX Previews - Round 21

Once again, SKY have picked the game of the round as their Thursday night fare when the Rhinos welcome the Tigers to Headingley in a top of the table showdown.

Beyond this fixture, and with the exception of an intrigueing looking game at Hull KR, where they take on the Red Devlis, then it looks as though the rest of the fixtures could be a predictable procession.

But in Superleague XIX there is a surprise lurking in every round. Could it be Bradford to beat the Giants, the Vikings to upset the Wolves, or London to get their first win of the season against the Saints?

We'll have to wait and see.

We preview the action here.....

Itís round 21 and still the race for the top eight places is very much on, with two points the gap between the top five and four points from tenth to eighth.

Here are this weeks previews.


The game of the round takes place at HQ with the winner going top (at least until Saints hammer the Broncos).

Both sides go into this one on the back of wins and more importantly for the Blue Ďní Amber key players returning at a crucial time.

Whilst the visitors have been in better attacking for their defence has been easier to breach but in this fixture form counts for little and with so much at stake anything can happen.

Once the Rhinos scored last week the flood gates opened but for an hour we lacked composure and quality to take any possible chances.

It will be fierce, fast and potentially one of the games of the year the Tigers will have revenge in mind after their home defeat earlier in the year but the Rhinos need to up the gears now.

This is the fixture where the hosts start to hit their earlier season form with and without the ball albeit in a close tough game.

After a resounding win against an abysmal French outfit away from home last week the Pies entertain the B+W also rans.<>P The visitors were well beaten against the big spending Devils last and are now 4 pts off 8th. The visitors lack quality and ideas whereas the hosts are chasing top spot which points to a home win. It may be a battle for an hour but the Pies have too much fire power and will get the spoils.

The hosts are hanging on to 8th for their lives by virtue of a single point and the last Team they need to be facing are TSí Wire who arrive with a 10 game winning run.

The early season form has deserted Betts and co with little or no signs of it returning whereas the visitors go from strength to strength.

Keeping the score respectable is the best the Vikings can hope for but it may well be a contest for the first half at least if they can contain the fast start Wire are renowned for.

All I can see is the 11th win on the bounce and more pressure on the home side.

After the worse kept secret in SL was confirmed mathematically last week with the inevitable relegation of the hosts they face another hiding when league leaders Saints visit.

Another long 80 minutes of pain for the hosts as the visitors top up their points diff.

The Webster victory train leaves its home station and travels to France this week on the back of another hard fought if unspectacular win.

The hosts were hammered last week when they lost not only the game to the visiting Pies but also the plot which can only be described as a disciplinary meltdown.

Even with the expected 1 or 2 absentees the hosts are normally a good team at home and I expect a return to that form to atone for last weeks implosion.

The Puddy Cats will grind and get stuck in but away from home this is a tough test and I think their unbeaten streak will end.

Dragons by 14.

After losing out to Cas the Giants will be looking to get their top four challenge back on track when the second team for relegation visit.

After getting so close to a win against the Dragons a couple of weeks ago it was back to the regular 20pt+ defeat last week as the visitors bore the brunt of a Saints backlash.

Unfortunately the it will be a case of De Ja Vu for Jimmys mob as once again their lack of quality and confidence will be exposed against a top 8 team.

Playing only for pride can inspire the visitors but they wonít even be close to an upset.

Giants by 22.

The Robins were given a reality check after a last 20 minute 5try blitz did the damage at HQ as Burrow inspired the Rhinos to break their stubborn resistance.

The Devils are improving and have faint hopes of 8th despite a 4pt gap whereas the hosts will see this as a chance to go up into 8th with the Vikings facing a defeat to Wire.

This should be a good game all to play for and both teams with something to prove.

Home advantage should be enough for the Robins but it will be close.
