rhinoms Superleague XX Previews - Round 9
Posted by southstander on April 05 2015 - 19:01:16

by rhinoms

After all the excitement of derby Friday there are a few clubs looking to get their confidence back as we head ito round nine.

We take a look ahead to second instalment of this weekends action here.....

Itís part two of the Easter SL Bonanza and normally when we see 1 or 2 unexpected upsets but given some of the results thus far this year and indeed on good Friday itís getting harder to call which can only be a good thing for SL.

Here are this weeks previews.


After both teams re-ignited their respective seasons with good wins on Friday this could be a very tough but enjoyable game.

The visitors arrive after a convincing win over local rivals Wire whereas the hosts stopped the rot with a crushing away win at Wakey.

With Brown back for the Vikings they look a better & more threatening team but I think the home side had the easier the fixture last week which will prove vital.

A tough match and no doubts plenty of points in both teams but I think the home side have the edge.

The Robins are firing and looking every bit a top 6 challenger but the Giants stuttered to a poor home defeat last time out against the fired up Devils.

After a convincing derby win and all their imports settling into the SL the hosts will be confident of claiming another play off regulars scalp.

However with all the physical and emotional effort they put into the derby will they have enough left in the tank to ďdouble upĒ against a wounded and fired up Giants team?

An entertaining game on paper and it wouldnít surprise me to see a 60+ pts aggregate but I think the visitors will want it more and eventually wear down the Robins.

The Blue Ďní Amber always looked in control last time out albeit in a muddy grind v the Tigers whereas the struggling injury ravaged visitors were once again pasted this time on their own paddock.

Itís not a case of who wins but when Leeds win and by how many things are that bad for our neighbours.

Complacency can bite you big time in RL we know that all too well but I donít think anyone in Wakey whether it be a fan or player thinks they have a prayer so I expect a long afternoon for the visitors.

After stunning the in form Giants on their own patch the big spending Devils welcome the Pies this time round and it will be a decent gauge as to where they currently sit in the pecking order.

The Pies will be confident after exacting revenge for their GF defeat on bitter rivals STís in a tense hard fought grind.

Again a lot will depend on who has the most left in the tank but even then the hosts still lack enough quality in areas to be beating the bigger teams on a regular basis.

There are points in both teams but the visitors are much better defensively and thatís what will ultimately cost the Devils in this one.

Both teams are licking their wounds after Derby defeats but the visitorsí cause is fast becoming desperate as they sit in the bottom 2.

The hosts will be fired up and determined not to lose touch with the Rhinos at the top of the table so it could be a long afternoon for the B&Wís.

The visitors lack confidence ,quality and leadership throughout the team and in fact Club and they certainly wonít get any positives from this one.

These two meet after deservedly losing their respective derby day battles and both are struggling for consistency both form wise and with selection.

Many expected the hosts to be comfortably amongst the top 3 from start to finish me included but they just havenít got going in 2015 whereas the visitors were always up against it after their key departures from 2014.

Tigers old boy And big money Wire signing Clarke welcomes his hometown club and many of the Wire faithful are questioning whether or not his heart is still there so expect a big game from the young 9.

I think Wire will be too strong on their own turf but tougher tests lay ahead whereas for Coach Powell I think a top 8 spot will be seen as a success at the end of the year but more pain lays ahead.
