rhinoms Superleague XIX Previews - Play-Off I
Posted by southstander on September 17 2014 - 11:59:12

by rhinoms

With just three weekends left before the Grand Final we start losing teams and this week will see the end of the season for two out of; Warrington, Leeds, Catalans or Widnes.

The top four are jostling for position in the later stages of the race but Saturday sees two games of knockout rugby at the Halliwell-Jones and Headingley.

Will there be any shocks, or will the Wolves and the Rhinos make it through to nest week?

We preview the action here.....

After 27 rounds the “real comp” starts this weekend as the play –offs get under way with some interesting match ups and potentially 1 or 2 shocks on the cards. Here are this weeks previews!


The defending Champions welcome last years LLS winners to the Pie dome as the Mono-brow less Giants are the visitors.

The Giants will be confident having already beaten the Pies twice this year but as we all know SL form counts for very little in the play-offs.

Two big aggressive packs make it potentially a humdinger and both are capable of scoring quality trys whilst also having brutal defences at times.

I think home advantage and the lack of their Leading H/B will cost the visitors but it should still be a quality game.

Both teams were the “last 2 standing” last week as the LLS was finally decided ironically by both teams actually losing.

The hosts have done it tough for a while missing their best H/B ,F/B and key BR whereas Cas although the team of the year looked as though they had hit a wall last week.

Again this promises to be a quality game and the match up at 9 between Roby and Clarke is worth watching the game on its own.

Big ?’s will be answered in this one can Cas kick on after their Wembley appearance or will ST’s continue to defy their injury lists?

For me it will be the latter home advantage and a play-off “nous” will be just enough for the hosts but Cas will be hard to beat on their own patch next week.

ST’s by 8.

A local derby for game three as the Wire welcome their neighbours the Vikings.

The hosts have been hit by injury but will still be a huge threat as TS hopes they finally make it 3rd time lucky and win the GF after 2 consecutive defeats at OT.

The Vikings are Play-off newbies but also have the know-how when it comes to beating their rivals.

However the play-offs are different gravy and after their CC semi-final implosion can the visitors step up to the” big game” required standard?

Unfortunately I don’t think so but they will have a good dig and come back stronger next year!

The CC winners are chasing the double but after losing 5 straight and finishing a disappointing low of 6th they will have to do it tough in 2014.

The visitors whilst outstanding at home just don’t travel well but should be a threat given their recent confidence.

If ever the mantra SL form means nothing in the play-offs then it applies to the Blue ‘n’ Amber.

We know they are capable of winning it from anywhere as do the rest of the comp.

Although it will be tough I expect the hosts to be too strong and take the first step towards that elusive double.
