A Devil of a Game
Posted by southstander on July 25 2014 - 11:18:50

Plotting our Downfall
Danny McGuire takes the captains armband after Kevin Sinfields two game suspension for last weeks rush of blood against the Tigers.

Zak Hardaker is likely to take over the kicking duties against a Reds side who are experiencing something of a resurgence under coach Harris and are unbeaten in their last three outings.

Dr Koukash will have his side rallied to the cause for tonights game as his side still harbour ambitions of eighth spot and a shot at the big boys in the play-offs. It could be quite a humdinger, but please, no more Glasgow kisses.

We preview the game, read more here...

With one obvious exception it is a strong Rhinos ninteen which has been named for the trip to sunny Salford. Clarkson and Kirke are the only two remaining occupants if the treatment room so it is now a matter of how to squeeze a big healthy squad into seventeen available places.

Jones-Bishop, soon to be a Devils player, misses out again in McDermotts nineteen of; Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Aiton, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, S Ward, Delaney, Bailey, T Briscoe, Sutcliffe, Singleton, Minchella, and Walters.

Salford have their own suspension problems with hooker Tommy Lee ruled out for tonights game. It is likely that the on-loan Logan Tomkins will get the number nine shirt. Kevin Locke will be looking to make his home debut after missing the last Salford game with a groin strain and prop forward Lama Tasi is back after a two game suspension.

Iestyn Harris will put his faith in seventeen from his nineteen of; Fages, Rapira, Evalds, Sa'u, Johnson, Tasi, Chase, J Walne, Walton, Locke, Meli, Caton-Brown, Ashurst, Puletua, Hansen, Morley, J Griffin, Tomkins, and D Griffin.

Leeds record over their last five games (W3, D1, L1) is better than the Devils (W3, L2) but they have won their last three on the bounce against Huddersfield and both Hull sides.

The Rhinos were comfortable winners when the two sides met earlier in the season when we outscored the opposition by six tries to one in a 32-04 win. This will be the thirty-third regular season meeting between the two sides in the Superleague era with the Rhinos having been victorious on thirty-one occasions, the only blemish was the 20-30 loss back in 2009. Interestingly there isn't a single survivor from that game in the Salford side but the Rhinos side could contain eight players who took part. Prediction
Devils 18 30 Rhinos

The Devils have been given a six point start on the coupon, an indication of just how close this game could be. I think that the Rhinos will have enough firepower to win the game and with a good travelling support in the sunshine it should be a night for celebration, but I just have a nagging doubt.

It is going to be hot, hot, hot with the temperature above twenty for the whole game and in the high twenties at kick-off. It is the kind of game for good, flowing, open, fast, rugby.

Travel safe and enjoy the match...
