up next leeds who have now hit abit of form, short turnaround for us not ideal

we didnt pick up anymore injuries at wigan which is a bonus and ferguson sounds like he will return which will help the attack and roberts can revert to what he does best and coming off the bench

gaskell and brough to partner again, lets hope they produce some magic behind the platform the forwards should make.

local derby friday night under the lights it doesnt come much better :ROCKS: hope our run of getting the better of leeds continues too!

Hard to judge which Giants side will come out. Hopefully we'll build on our showing against Wigan and tackle our attacking options problem we've had all season.

Leeds is always tough no matter what time of year or which players are missing. We needed the Wigan game. Playing teams not expected to win anything (bar Hull) has put more pressure on us than going in as the underdog.
Hopefully our tougher run of games will toughen up our attitude and big game mentality.

I hope our point at Wigan will help bring in the extra fans.
Wonder if you lot at the back have any chants in mind for the new and 'improved' pudding that is Brett Ferres.

Lay off the offensive chants, spend your effort shouting for our team not theirs

As I put, the message was targeted toward the lot at the back, who seem to come up with something spontaneous every few games to keep the mood going up back.
I sadly won't be going this week so I won't be chanting either way. Just in spirit.

You have any opinion on the upcoming game you wish to Share?

A game we can win for sure, just need to play like we know we can

If Fergy is fit I'd put him back in the side too

as we always seem to do better against this lot even though they've hit some form. Hopefully we will take some of the form from Friday into this. Can't wait to see the pacific boys slam into their guys.

Certainly not a game the Giants fear.. even under the middle 8 pressures. We always treat them with respect and pull a few things out of the bag to get some points.
If we can have that attitude to every game we'll win a fair amount of games this year.

The pacific boys will tear into Leeds. For me that's the Rhinos weak point. Very good game management and good at offloading and spreading the ball but lack in the go forward of there props.
This is where I think Stone's drive and kick tactic could work well as long as we can finish our chances.

I'd agree that our forwards haven't made earth-shattering yardage - though they have picked up in the last 2 games, more through sharpness than muscle - but yours don't appear substantially better judging by the stats.

Be a close thing I reckon, Brough has a better kicking game than anything we can muster.
