Another day another comp and a chance to keep up our decent record in recent seasons against the Rhinos, Lets hope plenty Fartowners turn up because i reckon there will be a fair few from Leeds,
Anything resembling last weeks showing will have disastrous effects but i don't think they will play like that again, If they turn out believing they can win and play with intensity they have every chance.
Leeds are in good form at the moment but every run comes to a stop somewhere, It will take a big effort but we have proved we can do it, Defend like we did against Wigan and Grind like we did against Hull and anything is possible, Above all else the forwards have to see themselves as equal to Leeds, they have to move up and knock them down, instead of 3 steps and wait to be hit and dragged 5 metre's, The backs i feel will be OK on the whole if Mcgillvrey stays on his wing, but the whole team for heavens sake show some aggression,.
Mick Sullivan on Radio once was asked , how do we beat these Aussies Mick. I loved his reply. He said, You knock the buggers down, and you keep on Knocking em down, after a while they don't get up so fast.
That is exactly how we used to beat them, and it's exactly the attitude the Giants need.
Anyone who remembers Mick Sullivan ( and i know there are some on here ) will also remember he wasn't the biggest guy, but there was not a lot that got past him, and often as not they were a bit quiet for a while.
