Leeds Rhinos vs Salford Reds Preview

Tonight sees the last game for Leeds Rhinos at The Willows.  Now I know most people will say they are glad to see it go, however, I LOVE The Willows.  It has been my favourite away ground for, like ever.  I’m not sure why as it is very run down, but it has a certain amount of charm.  You’re close to the pitch & the players, it’s hidden away in a housing estate and if you walk round it, you’re highly likely to bump into one of the players coming out of the dressing room smelling of deep heat 🙂

We were reminiscing last week about our favourite moment at The Willows, which has to be the pre match entertainment of a man parachuting into the middle of the pitch.  Only he missed by a mile, flew straight into the side of the main stand behind the pitch in a comedy style fashion.  All worried for his safety we kept looking in that direction, shocked that this could have happened, when he ran around the side of the pitch, parachute in hand, waving to let us know he was alright.  Hilarious!!!

On to tonight’s game…after 2 wins on the bounce can we keep the momentum going?  We should be on a high after last week, however, this is not always a good thing.  Brilliant news that Kallum Watkins is back in the squad this week, however, with Ben Jones-Bishop being 50/50 and Brett Delaney and Weller Hauraki out through injury, there is one or two changes in the side.  Unusually, I’m going to say that I think we can do it tonight…Oh will this come back & bite me on the bum no doubt.
