- Rugby - Europe - Europe Super League
Rhinos should grab their first win against new boys Leigh Centurions.
Its nice to see a new club in super league but that was not a nice start for LC last week as they were crushed by Cas. I have to admit i expected a lot more from them but their defence was too weak and as soon as we seen the first score the home side were rolling through the middle and making easy breaks. Ofcourse at home we will see plenty of fight and a packed house getting right behind their side.
They do have some super league experience but it is players at the end of their career i wonder if it might be a season too many for one or two of them.
Leeds had a pretty horrible season last year it was hard to believe just how badly wrong it went- really missing some big names- but this is still a powerful squad and a team that can strike from anywhere. I think they will be desperate to get their first win having lost a very tight and physical affair at Saints. The defence by both teams was excellent and it was no surprise to hear the manager say he was happy despite losing.
This is a nice ground to visit, good pitch and lovely stadium im not too worried that its so early in the season i think Leeds are going to enjoy it. First 20 mins should be a battle but same as last week when Rhinos make the break through they can go on to control this one.
McGuire is back and is a good bet for man of the match
Leeds should win by plenty.
Leeds-8. 5 with bwin at 1. 91
