What are you looking forward to in this weekends round.


Recommended Posts

 Generally every weekend there`s something in particular that piques my interest either in a game, between two teams or even just the jostling on the ladder. Sometimes all three.

This week I`m particularly looking forward to see Anthony Milford`s comeback against Brisbane and secondly seeing how 27 year old Lachlan Miller`s debut for the Sharks goes. Miller played League all his youth but was poached by Oz union sevens where he played for 5 years culminating at the Tokyo Olympics. He thought his NRL chance had passed him by but instructed his agent to put feelers out to NRL clubs to try and have one last crack at NRL. Craig FitzGibbons gave him a chance and after his recent form where :

" Miller, who boasts speed and special evasive skill, leads the NSW Cup in tackle breaks and second for line-break assists. "

 Makes his debut this weekend. A life long dream come true. Looking forward to see how he goes.

Any other highlights that you`re looking forward to in either Super League, NRL or elsewhere, would be great if you could share them as it might provide another point of interest for other posters.

Huddersfield v Toulouse - Big opportunity for Toulouse, this one. With Huddersfield likely to have an eye on next weekend and off the back of a massive win against Wakefield, it could be a massive opportunity for Toulouse to get level with Wakefield. 

Leeds v Wakefield - 10th v 11th with one point separating the two of them, Wakefield need a response from losing to Toulouse and their recent form and Leeds similar following a loss to Salford. Depending on the Toulouse result, this could be quite a big game for both.

Giants Toulouse if Toulouse can pinch it.  Gives us an awesome run in.  

Already on another thread but Eagles vs Widnes.  Sheffield new ground and proper home now to kick on and emerge  (or re-emerge) as another strong club.

If Leeds beat wakey, I'd happily see the Giants lose against Tolouse 😆

I suspect though it'll be full strength team ahead of the cup final

 Well said, I think seeing it written down with obvious enthusiasm makes it all the more enticing. Two great choices.

The games I am looking forward to the most this weekend are...

Cowboys vs. Storm to see if the Cows are the real deal this year by beating a Storm outfit that will be hurting after a heavy loss last weekend.

Hammersmith vs. Eastern Rhinos for a bit of live Rugby in the sun and then a couple of pints or three on the pub crawl home!

Good one, yes I think we`ll get the chance to see if the Cowboys halves are performing as good as everyone says especially with the pressure the Storm will put on them.

Thanks for that Dunbar, just the sort of thing that I thought could make a thread like this interesting.

Hi Rocket.

Looking forward to seeing how Brisbane go against Newcastle. Really enjoying watching them play off Reynolds at the moment.

NQ vs Melbourne is another. Should be something of a marker for where the Cows are.

Also looking forward to seeing whether Warrington can raise their game and be competitive against Saints.

Brilliant first ever game for Sheffield Tigers under 14s.. lost but only by 3-4 tries. Some minor mistakes, some of which we'll easily teach out just not had enough training sessions yet.. Great to see Rugby League being played by the kids and all thoroughly enjoyed it!

Well, the Cowboys put the cleaners through the Storm.  Melbourne had Jarome Hughes ruled out which meant a reshuffle of the spine but the Cowboys were very impressive and showed they are real contenders this year.

And Hammersmith Hills Hoists beat Eastern Rhinos 24-16 in what was a really entertaining game.
