rhinoms Superleague XX Previews - Round 6
Posted by southstander on March 18 2015 - 15:11:23

by rhinoms

There are two mouthwatering games for the TV audiences this weekend as Saints defend their unbeaten start to the season against the side who brought the Rhinos own one hundred percent start crashing to the ground last week.

Friday night sees the Rhinos welcome the old enemy, Wigan Warriors, to Headingley and will welcome Zak Hardaker back to the ranks after last weeks disciplinary omission against a team robbed of the services of Josh Charnley.

We take a look ahead to the weekends action here.....

We reach week 6 of the SL and only STís remain unbeaten with a perfect 5/5 after their win v Widnes whereas the Rhinos finally lost their unbeaten record against the Bentham inspired Wire.

Here are this weeks previews.

SAINTS V. WOLVES

The unbeaten Champs welcome 3rd placed Wire to Langtree Park and although they have a 100% record the hosts will be looking to step up the quality of their performance.

The visitors arrive in confident mood after ending the Rhinos unbeaten start but theyíll need more than a questionable effort from the officials to win this one.

Itís traditionally a cracking fixture and I expect it will be another belter with plenty of fireworks upfront with skill and pace out-wide in both camps.

A great way to start the weekends fixtures but I think the Champs on their own patch to be too strong.

TIGERS V. DEVILS

After getting nilled by the Giants in a dour match last week Darryl Powell will be desperate for his Tigers to replicate their last home outing when they trounced the Pies.

The Drís play thing are starting to gain confidence and to be fair sit 6th on merit after 2 wins and a draw from their opening 5 matches.

Defences for both sides have been ordinary at best so expect plenty of points but who scores the most?

The Hosts do share the work load going forward and have various threats when attacking whereas the Devils do rely heavily on Chase someone the Tigers will know enough about prepare for.

Once again I think home advantage is key and thatís why I think Powells men will just have too much for the visiting Devils.

FC v. DRAGONS

After an agonising one point loss saved Radders from the dole queue for another week the B&Wís welcome the travel sick Dragons to Codsville.

The visitors are once again showing how predictable they are with some strong efforts at home and the defence of a soggy kit-kat on their travels.

The hosts are very much a team that Grind in 2015 but they will see this as a chance to open up and score some points given the defensive frailties of the Frenchmen.

More travel woes in store for the toothless Dragons and Radders can enjoy another week out of the job centre.

RHINOS v. WARRIORS

After a pretty disappointing performance and loss at the Wire last week the Blue Ďní Amber welcome Smiley Wane and his mis-firing Pies to HQ.

The hosts were very predictable and panicky last week so the Coach will be hoping for a return to the free flowing attacking RL weíve seen against the Vikings and FC earlier in the season.

The visitors are struggling for quality and consistency thus far but we all know they will be fired up and come to spoil.

It should be a tough but exciting encounter with fireworks amongst the forwards but the hosts hold the aces out wide which should prove to be good enough to secure the points.

WILDCATS v. GIANTS

The perennial under dogs welcome the Giants this week and with both teams sitting on 4 pts itís a good chance for the winner to gain some breathing space and momentum looking up the table rather than down.

The visitors are capable of much better than they have shown thus far whereas for the hosts what they lack in quality they tend to make up for in spirit and causing upsets.

It should be close for an hour or so but the visitors have the edge at HB and upfront which should be enough to eventually take the win.

VIKINGS v. KR

The Robins arrive in Widnes 1pt above the hosts and they are scoring plenty of points however on their own patch the Vikings are tough to beat at times.

With the new SL format this could be a pivotal game for both teams and their top 8 ambitions if the Robins win the gap becomes 3pts but should the hosts take the spoils it remains a 1pt gap but the teams will switch League position.

Potentially plenty of points in this one but how the Robins kept the Dragons scoreless in the 2nd half last week shows their defence is starting to click as well which gives them the edge in this one. Entertainment aplenty but I think the visitors take the points.
