Top Table for Big Mac
Posted by southstander on March 14 2008 - 09:01:39

Big Mac

Big Mac brings his Harlequins side to an injury and suspension ravaged Headingley Carnegie for tonights top of the table clash.

On the back of four successive wins, the London side are in second place, just nineteen points difference behind us. They muscled up well against the Giants last week and kept pointless, while we were being humiliated at bottom of the pile Castleford Tigers.

It will be the 'Quins who come into this game full of confidence and the Rhinos who will be looking to get back on the bike.

We preview the game here...

The Rhinos nineteen (a new invention from the RFL) has rather a weak look about it. Bluey has named; Webb, Donald, Senior, Burrow, Leuluai, Peacock, Jones-Buchanan, Ellis, Sinfield, Lauiti'iti, Bailey, Scruton, Ablett, Tansey, Hall, Williams, Burgess, Kaye and Worrall with two of the last six the likely ones not to make the side. We are, of course, without Toopi and McGuire through injury and Matt Diskin through suspension so there will be plenty of shuffling of changes and the likelihood of some players not fulfilling their familiar roles. Luckily Diskin only picked up a one match suspension and will be back for the game against Bradford next week, but will we be going into that game off the back of two defeats.

Brian McDermott always relishes a return to his old employer and will be looking to build on what has already been a great start to the season for his side. An opening day loss to Wigan seemed to support most peoples pre-season thoughts that the 'Quins wouldbe hovering around the bottom of the table, but since then his side have recorded four straight wins including last weekends nilling of the Giants. There is plenty of quality in depth at the 'Quins including the likes of Orr, Heckenberg, Rinaldi, McLinden and Sheriffe.

Three 'Quins to watch;




We haven't lost to the Broncos in Superleague since 2005 and that terrible conga cursed evening in Perpignan. We have't lost at home to the Broncos for eight years since Superleague V when the visitors beat us by 18-6. In thirty-eight games against London sides (under all their names) in the Superleague era we have only lost on five occasions, and only two of them were at home. Prediction
Rhinos 44 22 Quins

As opposed to last week I am not at all confident in my prediction. This is what should happen if the real Rhinosturn up and the 'Quins play an average game. The bookies have given the visitors a fourteen point start but I have every hope that we'll be able to beat that and get some confidence back going into a tough Easter period.

Enjoy the game, and keep everything crossed.

Don't forget to get your predictions in here.
