Moon-light Robbery
Posted by southstander on August 30 2014 - 08:06:53

Moon-light for 60

A loss tonight would gift the minor premiership to Saints for the first time since 2008, the Rhinos win that the rest of Superleague were praying for would re-open the race for top spot.

The omission of Rob Burrow was the surprise news on the Rhinos teamsheet and alongside the absence of Danny McGuire, who had picked up an injury in the Cup Final, indicated that it might be a tough night for the home side.

As the game started the rain came, it almost felt like a Grand Final night.

Cup Hangover?
It is difficult enough for us to climb back down from cloud nine after last weekends superb Challenge Cup final win, so it must be ten times more difficult for the players.

We've been thrown right back in at the deep-end with a 'must win' game against the league leaders St Helens who are fresh from a weekend off and looking for a win to more-or-less secure the 2014 minor premiership.

You may have expected the boss to give a few of the 'old-timers' an extra week to recover but he's made his intentions clear and named an unchanged side.

All sides except the Rhinos and the Tigers have had a weekends rest to prepare themselves for the last three Superleague fixtures. It's a definite advantage as the Rhinos come up against the league leaders in a match which could see an end to their challenge for top spot, and the Tigers are licking their Challenge Cup wounds ahead of a visit from the Bradford Bulls.

But there are intriguing match-ups across the fixture list as the Giants travel to Warrington, the Warriors visit Widnes, the Devils take on the Wildcats and the Humberside derby splits a city for the last time this season.

Perfect Day

This was the one

It turned out to be the perfect Saturday.

The weather was great, the atmosphere electric and well natured, and the game a well contested outing between two closely matched teams.

In the end the Rhinos emerged victorious to collect their first Challenge Cup of the twenty-first century, ending fifteen years of hurt for players, club and supporters.

Rhinos End Fifteen Years of Hurt

At Last!

What a funny old game.

When the Rhinos took on the Tigers just over a month ago at Headingley, Leeds skipper had the ignimony of seeing the first red card of his career for a head-butt which resulted in a two game suspension. Today, against the same opposition he had the honour of leading his side to their first Challenge Cup win since 1999 and lifting aloft the world famous trophy.

This was the one that meant so much to the lads, the last medal in their personal trophy cabinets to complete full sets. But it also means so much to the club and the fans, this was the one we've been waiting for and after six long journeys home as losers, this one felt so good to be a winner.

The Hopes of a City
Posted by southstander on August 22 2014 - 14:36:44

Brilliant 2014
This should be a time of joy, hope an optimism. A trip to Wembley to see the Rhinos, strong favourites (2/5), take on our country cousins in the Challenge Cup Final.

So why am I full of dread and forboding?

Too many trips to Wembley (or other Final venue) which have resulted in far too many dissapointed journeys home, that's why!

This game should have a feeling of 1999 about it, but instead it feels more like 2005.

So...a weekend of Superleague fixtures to build the suspense between the Challenge Cup semi-finals and the exodus to Wembley!

It is highly likely that both the Tigers and the Rhinos will be 'resting' players ahead of their London trip, but this is more likely to be to the detriment of Castleford who travel to Warrington than the Rhinos who have a journey dress rehearsal with a trip to play the Broncos.

Elsewhere you'd expect the Saints, Warriors and Giants to keep up pressure for the Minor Premiership.

London Calling

Despite being pre-match favourites, many Rhinos supporters will have made the journey to Langtree Park more in hope than expectation. Last weekends horrific loss at the hands of the Bulls has dented fan morale, but with a squad looking close to full strength there was hope that recent bad form has been just a blip.

The skipper was back in charge after his two game suspension and the big guns were back in a side who had trained well in the week and were up for a return to Wembley after missing out in 2013.

But the Warrington Wolves were not going to just roll over, this had the makings of a stonker.

Make or Break Match
Posted by southstander on August 08 2014 - 20:47:41

Skipper Back
This is the game which will make or break the Rhinos season.

A win over the Warrington Wolves in the semi-final and we're off to Wembley and well set for the run-in to the play-offs, a loss and we've lost our chances of a Wembley visit and our downward spiral continues. The importance can't be understated.

The good news is that the skipper is back.

Worse than Watching Paint Dry

Scrappy Try

Does anyone know where I can get the form to complete for my refund?

Don't get me wrong, I fully understand why McDermott rested half of his first team. If we win the semi-final against the Wolves, and get to Wembley, then tonight will be a dim and distant memory. But on a night when Hull FC did the business against the Saints and a victory for the Rhinos would have seen us back at the top of the pile, then to lose to the side second from bottom and already relegated is an unmitigated disaster.

I'm all for the kids getting a chance, but when the wheels came off tonight there was too little experience out there to get them back on again.
