Tough Holiday Outing To Warrington
Posted by southstander on April 30 2006 - 15:38:42

Dummy Back In Lee

Leeds take on the Warrington Wolves for the first time this season when the visit the Halliwell-Jones for a mid-afternoon kick-off tomorrow.

The last time we visited Warrington was in September last season when we slumped to a 33-16 loss in a game where Joey Jones took apart with a superb kicking game.

The good news is that Jones won't be there to torment us this season, however, the side he left behind has the Jekyll and Hyde characteristics to give us a beating, or get absolutely hammered.

We preview the game here...

Smiths twenty man squad includes three players making their way back from injury. Walker, Feather and Smith are all in with a chance of playing and join the seventeen who eased to victory in a scrappy game against the Tigers last friday night. I would suspect that Smith will look at bringing back at least two of the three, with Gibson and Tansey being my two most likely to miss out.

Paul Cullen is a canny coach, but does struggle to get consistency out of his side. Chris Bridge is missing from the Wire line-up, but they have named a very strong twenty; Grose, Fa'afili, Martin Gleeson, Reardon, Barnett, Briers, Sullivan, Rauhihi, Clarke, Wood, Swann, Wainwright, Westwood, Grix, Parker, Leikvoll, Lima, Noone, Mark Gleeson and Kohe-Love.

Martin Gleeson has still to fire on all cylinders, but the Rhinos are likely to bring out the best in him. If Briers can keep hold of his temper he is always dangerous and the home side have plenty of strike players who can cause the Rhinos defence a lot of problems.

Three Wolves to watch;




Since the start of Superleague the two teams have met twenty-four times. Leeds have won on seventeen occasions with the Wolves picking up six and one game being drawn. You are only as good as your last game, and in the last game between the sides we were taught a rugby league lesson.

Warrington are flying high on recent results, and in the top six in Superleague. A big win over Bradford on their last outing will have put them in the mood for another 'big four' scalp, but they have shown their frailty earlier in the season with losses to Salford, Saints, and bizzarely to the Catalan Dragons. So far this season they have a better record away from home (won 4 out of 5) to at home (won 2 out of 6). We have to hope that their poor home form will continue on monday. Prediction
Rhinos 38 28 Wolves

The forecast is that it will be chucking it down right up to kick-off so expect a slippy ball, and get there quick enough to stand near the back of the stand at the Halliwell-Jones. The bookies reckon that it will be a close affair, with the home side being given a four point advantage in the handicapping. I don't think that they will be too far wrong, but suspect that we might scrape a slightly bigger win than that.
