Warrington supporters will be salivating at the prospect of seeing one of the best, if not the best, player in the primrose and gold, even if it is only for a few matches. Warrington have had a sensational season, working as a team under the strict leadership of the excellent Cullen, but overnight they will become a one-man team as they push for play-off glory.|
And who will be the first victims of the Johns effect? Will it be the Rhinos...or will it be the Wolves?
The Rhinos are definitely on a downer at the moment, but as the saying goes, 'things can only get better'.
Although we went three games in August 2003 without winning (1 drawn game), the loss to Wigan on friday night signalled the first time since March/April 2001 (under Dean Lance) that we have lost three games on the bounce. That 2001 run actually continued to four games, with Leeds losing the first game of the Powell era...spookily, that fourth loss was away at Warrington.
What we all have to hope is that with the arrival of an injured Johns, the Wolves players feel that they can relax a little and take their eye off the ball. The mercearies money that Johns is on, and the de-registration of Appo, must leave a bitter taste in the mouths of some Wolves players.
What is behind Leeds current bad run? We'll take a look at that in tomorrows article!
