Rhinos to Add to Hull Heartache
Posted by southstander on March 22 2008 - 15:12:03

Not a Happy Easter Bunny!

When KR's James Webster slotted a drop goal over the cross bar in atrocious conditions on Good Friday lunchtime, it signalled heartache for FC, and condemned them to go into Easter Mondays game against the Rhinos languishing in tenth place. That is now twice in the last three outings that the Humbersiders have failed by a single point.

With McGuire looking likely to make his first appearance since picking up an injury in the World Club Challenge, and with the Rhinos not having conceeded a single try in two hours and forty minutes of play, it looks like the implending Easter whiteout may be the only way that Hull will avoid another holidays disappointment.

We preview the game here...

After friday nights worrying departure on a stretcher Kylie Leuleui has been given the day off to recover from the concussion that he suffered at the shoulder of Chris Feather. While there is one downer, there are two excellent pieces fo news for Rhinos fans in that Danny McGuire and Ryan Bailey are both named in the nineteen, along with Carl Ablett, for the trip to the KC Stadium. If McGuire is fit, and there is no guarantee that he is, then I'd espect that Tansey and Worrall may be the two to miss out.

Peter Sharps side are still in the wars and suffering from their pre-season injury disaster. Definitely missing are Richard Horne, Ewan Dowes, Gareth Carvell and Willie Manu, four players who Airlie Birds fans would wish were pulling on the black and white on monday lunchtime. Sharp bolstered the ranks ten days ago through the signature of Adel Fellous from the Catalan Dragons and he'll add some much needed fire to a side who appear to be really struggling in both defence and attack.

Three Airlie Birds to watch;




The Rhinos have lost on their previous two visits to the KC Stadium with a 16-12 loss in May last year and a 23-16 loss in August 2006. It is over a year since we beat the Humbersiders either home or away, it seems that it may be time to set the record straight.

With Leeds on a roll and playing some of the best open football that I have seen, you can only see one outcome to this, just like you could when we went to Wheldon Road three weeks ago. Lets hope that this time I am right. Prediction
Hull FC 8 32 Rhinos

Danny McGuire will definitely add something to the Rhinos should he make his comeback in this game. For a number of Rhinos players it will be a tough ask for them to go out and better their individual performances from thursday night.

It's a bit early for our bookies to have the odds up yet, but after getting badly stung on thursday expect Hull FC to have a considerable start.

The weather could be our biggest opponent, and potentially quite a leveller. Take care getting over there in what looks like it could be quite nasty conditions, and after the win, take care getting home!
