rhinoms Superleague XX Previews - Round 10
Posted by southstander on April 10 2015 - 07:14:34

by rhinoms

After 'shocking Monday' we get back to action a day later than usual to allow the sides that little bit of extra recovery time.

The key games of interest will be at Huddersfield where the Saints are looking to get their season back on the rails, and the DW where the Warriors will seek to banish the memories of the loss at Salford.

The game where the neutral will be rooting for the underdog is at the City of Salford Stadium where third place Red Devils welcome the league leaders, Leeds Rhinos, with a chance to narrow the gap at the top to three points.

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

This week we edge nearer the half way mark as we hit RD10 of the regular season and as the fall-out from the short Easter turnaround takes effect along with the injuries, suspensions, and loss of form we get to see who has the best depth, quality, and all round resolve through adversity.

Here are this weeks previews!


Both teams won and lost over the Easter period and both wins were in the fixtures they were largely expected to lose.

Both these teams are inconsistent but the visitors sit one point and one place above their hosts in 10th spot but only two points separate FC from eighth spot.

This could go either way but the visitors Coach made the call to rest key duo Brown & Mellor on bank holiday Monday which could prove to be a masterstroke.

Time is running out for Radders who needs to get his team winning consistently and up challenging the big boys to save his job.

I think the way Betts rotated his squad will prove positive this week as his Vikings take a step into the top 8 and add to Radders’ woes.

Both sides are capable of huge wins as the Easter results proved but it’s the high flying Robins who are in the better form as their fourth spot on the SL shows.

For the Tigers a win will close the gap and put them on equal points as the visitors and possibly above them on points difference.

It should be an entertaining game as both sides like to attack from all over the park but I think the Robins hold the edge with their in form HB’s of Kelly & Campese.

An end to end thrilling encounter in store but for me the Red Robin will keep bobbing along.

SL’s bottom side arrive at the HJ stadium just in time for the toothless Wolves to end their losing slump which has seen them slip out of the top eight.

Unfortunately for the visitors keeping the points against under 50 can be seen as a positive as bigger battles lay ahead further down the track as they battle for their SL futures.

Both teams go into this one on the back of double defeats over the Easter period and desperate to return to winning ways.

The defending Champs are struggling for players and form which can equally be said about the hosts.

I think the visitors absentees are have a bigger effect on their performances than they’d hoped whereas the Giants are still struggling for consistency irrespective of who’s available or not.

This is a tough fixture for the visitors and I just think they’d need to be at full strength and in form to take the spoils so it’s a home win for me.

The table toppers visit the in-form Devils and it should have been a big game firstly for the hosts to show whether or not they were the real deal and secondly for the visitors to put them back in their place.

Unfortunately injuries have his the Rhinos whereas the hosts have been hit by injury and big suspensions after costly wins over the Easter period.

It should be a decent game there are still quality players on show and no doubts the hosts will still fancy their chances of taking another scalp at home.

For me the hosts don’t have the depth to absorb their absentees as well as their seasoned counterparts so it’s an away win.

Rhinos by 12.

The visitors still suffer from their SL travel sickness and the hosts will be fired up after a shock loss at the Devils on Easter Monday.

Both packs can play ugly so I wouldn’t be surprised to see 1 or 2 yellow cards or even a Red.

It won’t be very pretty but it will be tough and as we all know the Dragons rarely turn up away from home tough enough to win these fixtures.

The Silverback may crack a smile as they take the spoils and o doubts celebrate announcing that homesick Rat-Boy will be back for 2016.
