Is this the year of the Rhino?
 
A Rugby League question. After seeing my team, Leeds Rhinos, completely outclass an albeit under-strength St Helens team 70-0, can the sport's biggest under-acheivers win their first league title since 1972?

Who cares ? Take away the M62 & the northern muppets cannot get to the game anyway. League is an utter waste of space.

Just to update, Leeds Rhinos last weekend clinched the minor premiership and ensured their highest placed finish for 32 (count 'em) years. As none of the challenging teams below seem to be playing with any consistency, I reckon this could be finally be our year. All aboard the Old Trafford express (I hope).

Nope. It's definately the year of the monkey. Don't know where you get your information from.

Don't get me wrong, I'm hardly brimming with confidence. I've seen plenty of occasions where Leeds have reached big games, built the supporters' hopes up, only for them to come crashing to earth! I've just got a feeling that things could go right on Saturday (fingers crossed). It might sound daft, but I reckon the best preparation for Leeds going in to the final was getting beaten by Bradford in the play-off the other week. A bit of a kick up the arse, so to speak.
