Will Wounded Wolves Bite Back?
Posted by southstander on June 01 2007 - 13:48:09

Under Pressure

It's an embattled Warrington, and an even more embattled Paul Cullen who pay a visit to Headingley tonight.

But when animals are wounded, or backed into a corner, they are at their most dangerous...and the Wolf is no exception.

Leeds regained some confidence with last weeks rain-swept encounter at Hull KR and they will be looking to keep pace with St. Helens who take on strugglers Salford in tonights other match.

We preview the game here...

Tony Smith will stick with the same seventeen that risked hypothermia last week, as Matt Diskin has once again dropped out with his niggly groin injury. The only real risk is Gareth Ellis and whether he has recoved sufficiently from last weeks double knuckle dislocation, I suspect that he will play.

Warrington are without Vinnie Anderson (back) and Stuart Reardon (knee). Martin Gleeson, Chris Bridge and Chris Leikvoll are also unavailable for selection. Cullen will be placing a lot of responsibility on the sides 'old' heads in Briers and Morley so the Leeds lads will know who they need to rile to have the greatest effect.

Three Wolves to watch;



Our Cousin

The Rhinos hammered the Wolves when we visited the Halliwell-Jones six weeks ago. The 52-10 win featured nine tries from eight different individuals as we put on thirty-four unanswered second half points after the game was close at the interval. Rhinos fans shouldn't, however, forget the last visit of the Wolves to Headingley when to everyones dismay they knocked us out of the play-offs at the first round stage with an 18-17 win. They are not a side to be underestimated. Prediction
Rhinos 34 12 Wolves

The bookies are giving the Wolves and eighteen point start on the handicap coupon and there is no real surprise in that given Warringtons recent results, their league position and the number of key injuries that they have. They have won six out of their last eight league matches, a far cry from last seasons top six finish.

Tonights forecast is for it to be partially cloudy. Hopefully the rainstorms which hit us yesterday will hold off and those travellers from Warrington will stay dry on the Western Terrace. Don;t forget though, there is a cash turnstile open for the South Stand tonight if you want to be sure of a dry eighty minutes.

As we said above the bookies have given Warrington an eighteen point start but I still fancy the Rhinos to improve on that. Better bets would be Webb or Donald as first try scorer at 12/1.

Enjoy the game.
