Make or Break Match
Posted by southstander on August 08 2014 - 20:45:07

Skipper Back
This is the game which will make or break the Rhinos season.

A win over the Warrington Wolves in the semi-final and we're off to Wembley and well set for the run-in to the play-offs, a loss and we've lost our chances of a Wembley visit and our downward spiral continues. The importance can't be understated.

The good news is that the skipper is back.

We preview the game, read more here...

Last weeks loss to the Bulls was an abberation, a shocking mistake by the coach who underestimated the opposition and decided to rest too many first teamers. It cost us the top spot and can't have been the best for morale.

On the plus side, the skipper is back after suspension for his indescretion against the Tigers and he'll be looking to make amends to his team-mates.

After their weeks rest a whole host of other Rhinos players return to join the skipper including Peacock, Moon, Hall and Ablett. The full-strength, full nineteen on which our Wembley hopes are pinned is; Hardaker, Watkins, Moon, Hall, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Aiton, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ablett, Sinfield, Ward, Delaney, Bailey, Kirke, Briscoe, Sutcliffe, and Walters.

Challenge Cup honours are level between the two sides with the twenty-one encounters being shared ten wins each with one game drawn. Honours are also even this season with both sides having won their respective home games.

Tony Smith has the Challenge Cup hoodoo over the Rhinos and names his squad as; Asostasi, Atkins, Bridge, England, Evans. R, Grix, Harrison, Higham, Hill, Monaghan. J, Monaghan. M, Myler, O'Brien, Ormsby, Ratchford, Russell, Waterhouse, Westwood and Wood.

The last meeting between the two sides in the Challenge Cup was at Wembley in 2012 when we lost by 18-35. The meeting before that was the 2010 final which had the same out come, a Leeds loss, this time by 6-30. There is no wonder why a semi-final against the Wolves fears fans with dread. Prediction
Rhinos 14 24 Wolves

Bizzarely the bookies have given the Wolves a two point start on the coupon and the Rhinos are 6/5 for the win with the Wolves 5/6. I'm less optimistic than the bookies and I have just got a bad feeling about this one.I'll have everything crossed and be wearing anything I consider in any way lucky, but I just think that we'll be bowing out of the competition.

The weather forecast at Langtree Park for tomorrow looks reasonable with no rain and temperatures reaching up to twenty degrees.

Travel safe and enjoy the match...
