Rhinos Get Back on the Bike
Posted by southstander on September 02 2005 - 10:04:39

Back on!

After back-to-back losses, against Bradford at Headingley and in the Challenge Cup Final agains Hull FC, it is time for the Rhinos to get back on the bike and prove that they have what it takes for the run-in to the end of the season.

Tonight sees the Rhinos travel to the JJB to take on a side coached by our nemesis Ian Millward. On paper it is a game that the Rhinos should win, and with the extra impetus of last weeks disappointment, many of those making the journey will be hoping for a big score.

Tony Smith has given in to the inevitable and travels without Keith Senior and Chris McKenna, both out with ankle injuries. Scruton, Smith and McDermott are added to the surviving fifteen from last week and I'd expect that it will be Smith who misses out on the final seventeen. McDermott will have a massive point to prove in his 200th start for Leeds, against the club which we signed him from ten years ago.

Ian Millwards side lies in tatters, with their continued injury problems costing him SeuSeu and possibly the influential Terry Newton (only declared as a 50/50 chance). The Wigan eighteen is; Dallas, Aspinwall, Vaealiki, Carney, Orr, Moran, Guisset, Newton, Tickle, Brown, Sculthorpe, Wild, Hansen, Allen, Beswick, Coyle, Hargreaves and Tomkins.

Three Pie Men to Keep an eye on;




Leeds have played Wigan twice this season, emerging as victors on both occasions. In mid-April we beath then 38-14 at the JJB, with that famous 70-0 win in June being, for one week, Wigans biggest ever loss in their history.

Since that trouncing, and the one the following week by Saints, Millward has tried hard to turn his team around and give tham a shot at making the top six. They have won their last three against Salford, Widnes and most notably against Hull FC in the week before the Challenge Cup Final. They are looking to add to the Rhinos misery and make it four on the bounce, and Millward will have got his side believing that a win is possible. Prediction
Warriors 12 36 Rhinos

The bookies, are obviously not expecting a big Rhinos backlash and give Wigan a meagre eight point start on the coupon. I'd be taking Leeds to win by more than eight as the words of Tony Smith will still be ringing loudly in their ears.

The weather forcasters have suggested that it will be a clear and sunny day/evening, good for ball handling, but probably better for Wigan who have had the extra week off.

It's pay-on-the-gate for Rhinos supporters, so if you can make it, get yourself across to the JJB (remember not to park in the retail car park) and show the lads that we still love them!
