Will Leeds Lift the Minor Premiership?
Posted by southstander on July 25 2005 - 07:24:37

Hubcap Staying?
The Rhinos performance against a strong and determined Warrington Wolves side on satruday will have changed the minds of some of the doubters who thought that we might be losing our cutting edge.

The Rhinos were at their very best, and even overcame the inept refereeing of Steve Ganson, to get over a hurdle which many commentators through would bring us crashing down.

Was saturdays win enough to retain the 'hubcap' for a second year, we look at the remaining fixtures and make our best guess.

Forget Hull and Warrington, they are fighting it out for third place. With the points difference being stacked massively in Leeds favour, both would have to win all their games while Leeds lost theirs to get to top spot. However badly the wheels could come off, that simply isn't going to happen. The run in for the hubcap is between the scousers and ourselves.

Leeds are currently one point clear with six games left. The Rhinos points difference is +596, while Saints is +283, although this will only come into play if one side gets another draw. The sides do not play each other again in the regular rounds of Superleague.

Both sides have run-ins against the same six sides, Leigh, London, Bradford, Wigan, Warrington and Wakefield, we look at predictions for the rest of the season to see who will finish top of the pile and have home advantage all the way to Old Trafford.

25Bradford (H)WinLondon (H)Win
26Wigan (A)WinLeigh (A)Win
27Warrington (A)LoseWigan (A)Win
28Wakefield (A)WinBradford (H)Win

My best guess is therefore that Warrington Wolves will be the undoing of both sides, but that Leeds and Sinats will each win the remainder of their games. This will leave the Rhinos on top of the table, finishing with 48 points against the Saints 47, and lifting the minor premiership for the second consecutive season.

One unexpected slip-up from the Rhinos, or a good win for the Saints at the Halliwell Jones, could be the Rhinos undoing, giving the daunting task of a trip to Knowsley Road in the first GF semi.

The season isn't over yet, and we're in for an exciting last six rounds.
