Third Time Lucky for McNamara?
Posted by southstander on May 22 2008 - 19:02:22

Get In!

It's Superleague XIII so it must be the Rhinos beating the Bulls...again.

Will this be third time lucky for McNamaras' men? Will the Rhinos grind their neighbours into the dirt once again?

By nine-thirty friday night, we'll find out!

We preview the game here...

Luke Burgess is back in the named nineteen man squad and will once again be relishing the chance to take on his brother, and once again emerge the victor. Eric Anselme is absent as he returns to France to fulfil his cup final committment with Albi. The Leeds nineteen is still missing; JJB, Gibson, Kirke and Toopi but Ali Lauiti'iti will hope to make his comeback from injury this week. From the squad of; Webb, Donald, Senior, Smith, McGuire, Burrow, Leuluai, Diskin, Peacock, Ellis, Sinfield, Lauitiiti, Bailey, Scruton, Ablett, Tansey, Hall, Burgess and Worrall, I would expect the out-of-favour Smith to join Worrall on water carrier duty.

McNamara must be wondering what he need to do to even get close to the Champions. His two attempts so far this season have both ended in disaster and rumours from theBradford camp indicate that he may well have problems in his selections this week with playmakers Deacon and Harris worries. His nineteen is; Tadulala, Langley, Halley, Vagana, Sykes, Morrison, Harris, Lynch, Evans, Kopczak, Solomona, Deacon, Burgess, Platt, Jeffries, Tupou, Finnigan, Newton and Hape. On paper it looks reasonable side, who should gove us a tough game, but wil the coach be able to get his players up for another Leeds game so soon after the Millennium loss?

Three Bullies to watch;


Fat Boy

Big Joe

All that really counts for anything is this season, but it is Superleague VIII (2003) since the Bulls last beat us at Oldslum. In this seasons two outings we've taken the spoils by 40-26 and 44-02. Prediction
Bulls 12 34 Rhinos

This will be a game which Leeds will have to lose, because the Bulls don't have the will or the firepower to win it.

The bookies have given the Bulls a four point start, but I don't think that will be enough for them. after tipping against us at Millennium Magic - I'm now tipping a big Leeds win.

Most of us will be out in the elements but no need to fear as the forecast suggests a mild evening with just a small chance of rain.

Don't forget to get your predictions in here.

Enjoy the game.
