rhinoms Superleague XX Previews - Round 15
Posted by southstander on May 21 2015 - 14:24:08

by rhinoms

The game of the round looks to be the match up between the Tigers and the Giants at the Mend-a-Hose Jungle with both sides lookijng to put their cup exits behind them. Saints travel to Hull to take on FC while the Rhinos are at home to the other half of Hull.

The Red Devils welcome the Mickey Highamless Wolves and the Warriors travel to the south of France while the Wildcats are likely victims at the hands of the Vikings.

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

After a week off for the Challenge Cup Super League is back and we reach round 15 Leeds still sit at the top but now their lead is only two points with Wigan in second who they face in two weeks at the magic weekend.

The race for the top eight is hotting up with everyone still in with a chance barring Wakey who sit seven points adrift at the bottom.

Here are this weeks previews.

TIGERS v. GIANTS

Both teams go into this looking to bounce back after suffering heavy Cup exits.

Itís 4th visiting 6th with only 1pt separating them so itís all to play for.

Both teams need a lot of improvement from last week and even though the jungle is historically a tough place to visit the 2015 Tigers just canít match last years high flying vintage.

It should be a tough game with desperation and determination in abundance but I think the visitors hold the edge in quality.

A potentially tough and entertaining game but I think the away team take the spoils.

FC v. SAINTS

The B&Wís are finding form and confidence after finally getting into the 8 and last weeks big cup win will boost them further.

The STís visit after a relatively easy cup win v York so should arrive refreshed but cautious as they look to re-take 2nd spot from their bitter rivals the Pies.

FC know how to beat the STís and this will really test their revival but I donít think they have the quality when the big boys come to play.

Another intriguing and tough game in prospect but I think weíll see the visitors up the gears & prove too strong for the hosts in a close one.

RHINOS v. KR

The Blue Ďní Amber bounced back into form in style when they destroyed the Giants last week but they face a tough Robins side who defied all the odds when beating the Pies the same team who had put 60pts on them 2 weeks ago.

Having the likes of Sinfield and Hall back really makes a difference for the hosts and they will be extremely confident going into this game but also cautious given the attacking threats the Robins possess.

It could be a points avalanche but I think the Rhinos are much stronger defensively and that will prove the difference here.

Entertainment end to end and points but itís a home win.

DEVILS v. WOLVES

After a week off the Drís expensive hobby will be fired up when the Wire visit.

Now sitting 2nd bottom but only 1 pt off the top 8 the hosts are desperate to get their play-off charge revitalised.

The visitors arrive well rested after cruising through their cup tie and still intent on a top ĺ spot.

Again it should be an entertaining game but the hosts just donít have enough quality across the board when the intensity goes up a notch.

Expect the Wire to be too strong but it could get tasty.

DRAGONS v. WARRIORS

The hosts are a shadow of the tough, free flowing hosts we saw in 2014 and which team turns up is anybodys guess.

The Pies will arrive sulking and determined to maintain 2nd spot after their cup exit.

With both sides playing a snide & niggly style expect some explosive moments but composure could be key to the win.

The hosts are capable when they get it right but thatís few and far between nowadays and I doubt they have the stomach for an all out war.

This could be tough viewing for the purists so expect plenty of spoiling and penalties but the away mob will be too strong.

Pies by 8.

WILDCATS v. VIKINGS

The host just canít buy a win and last weeks cup exit after a 24-6 HT lead has cost their Coach his job and ?ís about the players heart and commitment to the shirt.

The Vikings arrive after a scare v Batley but their last SL outing was a crushing win v the League Leaders so they have confidence and plenty of points in them.

I canít see anything but a messy heavy defeat for the hosts as their desperate plight worsens.
