Josh Hodgsons hot streak continues with Canberra. Could he win the Dally M Medal? A bottle-throwing incident at Belmore and Chris Chesters impact at Wakefield also feature in this weeks Set of Six... Coaches feeling the pressureThere are tough times for Brian McDermott and Paul Anderson. Leeds won eight of their first nine Super League fixtures last year but have tasted victory just twice in 2016 and fell to a third successive defeat on Friday against Hull KR. Last seasons treble winners have been beset by injuries at the start of the 2016 season and are still without a training complex as a result of the Boxing Day floods in Kirkstall. Paul Anderson and Brian McDermott have both endured difficult starts to the season McDermott admitted those problems have hurt his team but remains confident a change of luck will allow the Rhinos to find some form.The Rhinos are now 16/1 to win this years Grand Final while the Giants are 100/1. Andersons side were one game away from reaching Old Trafford last year but his focus has turned to avoiding a scrap for survival.Both appear to have strong relationships with understanding bosses but the pressure increases with every defeat. Huddersfield travel to face a Hull FC side on a four-game winning streak on Friday, with Leeds visiting Salford the following day.Hodgsons hot streak continues Josh Hodgson has played a starring role in Canberras superb start to the season Josh Hodgson is the early frontrunner for the Dally M Medal and he produced another impressive display for Canberra on Monday.The former Hull KR and Hull FC man helped the Raiders to a 22-8 victory over Canterbury at Belmore, chipping in with a try assist.Despite pressure from England team-mate James Graham, Hodgson dinked an inch-perfect kick through for Jack Wighton to score Canberras second try. Phil Clarke brings you his top five Super League tries of the week Hodgson also made 47 tackles over the 80 minutes, second only to Shaun Fensom as the Green Machine closed the gap on leaders Brisbane and Melbourne to one point.Laurie Daley was the last Canberra player to win the Dally M Medal in 1995. Could Hodgson make history?Glass bottle thrown at Belmore Bulldogs captain James Graham speaks with referee Ashley Klein A week after the fracas that followed Salfords win at Huddersfield, Canberras win over Canterbury was overshadowed by an ugly incident where a fan threw a glass bottle towards the Raiders bench, narrowly missing players and smashing on an exercise bike.The glass bottle thrown is understood to be Wild Turkey Bourbon.Security at Belmore were quick to identify the persons involved and they were removed from the stadium. Sam Burgess made his return from injury alongside brothers George and Tom as the Rabbitohs beat Manly They cant get glass into that place unless youve snuck it in, said Bulldogs chief executive Raelene Castle.I can only assume that person has snuck it in. We believe we know who the person is.The Bulldogs have dealt with it very professionally and very well, added Raiders coach Ricky Stuart. Canterbury is a great club and they jumped on it quickly and we dont want those unruly fans in our game.Potential Grand Finalists? Highlights of Warrington win at Wigan last Friday Did we see this years Grand Final teams in action at the DW Stadium last Friday? The bookies cannot look beyond Wigan and Warrington, who meet again on April 28 in front of the Sky Sports cameras.They each play three games before renewing acquaintances and should both gain maximum points, it would appear as though there are only two semi-final spots left to fight for.However, Warringtons hopes have taken a setback now Chris Sandow faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines. The Australian half-back suffered a substantial grade-two hamstring tear against Wigan, with Stefan Ratchford expected to switch for scrum-half for Fridays Sky Live clash with St Helens.Wolves head coach Tony Smith said: Chris is going to be out for a while and, although its not a week-or-two injury, we wont know the length of time until he sees a leading expert in London (on Monday night) and finds out what his options are in terms of either repairing or rehabilitating it.Coach of the Easter period Wakefield beat Salford on Saturday to record their third successive victory Chris Chester was out of work for only three weeks following his departure from Hull KR and his capture looks a great bit of business by Wakefield.Having led the Wildcats to their first win at Headingley since 2007 on Easter Monday, Chesters men made it three wins on the bounce against Salford.Chester is getting the best of his players, in particular youngsters Max Jowitt and Tom Johnstone, with the latter scoring a hat-trick against the Red Devils to take his try tally to five in three games. Wakefield winger Tom Johnstone scored a hat-trick against Salford Wakefield sit ninth in the Super League table after claiming their fourth victory of the campaign, level on eight points with Salford. They face a tough test against Wigan on Sunday but Chester believes they can maintain their excellent form.Winning becomes a habit and we have to continue the good work that we are doing out on the training field, he said.We have a lot of confidence at the moment and we are not afraid of anybody.The Coal Train arrives Watch Dave Taylor inspire Catalans to victory over Widnes Man-mountain Dave Taylors performance for Catalans against Widnes was something special.The former NRL star scored one try and had a hand in a couple more as the Dragons continued their excellent run of form.Taylors 68th-minute try, when he scooped up a loose ball to score, was his fifth for Catalans since joining from Gold Coast Titans, but he boasts an impressive all-round game. The 27-year-old Queenslander tops Catalans offloading charts with 15, averages 8.52 metres per carry and over 19 tackles per game, and has also chipped in with three try assists.After a sluggish start to the season, Catalans are on a four-game winning streak. They also looked to have solved the away form that dogged them last year, claiming three victories on the road in 2016.Could this be the year of the Dragons? They face a testing trip to Hull KR on Thursday, live on Sky Sports.

Colby Rasmus Jersey . There are some early surprises in the race for the Hart Trophy, but two of the contenders are the leagues biggest stars over the past decade. There are many more players in contention for the awards than just the three that Ive named, and a good or bad week can easily alter the landscape, but through the first 20 or so games of the NHL season, this is how the awards races look to me. The Memphis Grizzlies have become the masters of winning close games and games that reach overtime. Memphis also has mastered the Philadelphia 76ers recently.Memphis has won eight straight over the 76ers and would certainly enjoy getting an easier win on the second night of a back-to-back when the teams meet Tuesday night at FedEx Forum.Memphis is 10-0 in games that have been decided by five points or reached overtime. The latest was Mondays 110-108 double-overtime thriller in New Orleans.Marc Gasol scored 28 points and hit the game-tying 3-pointer with seven seconds left in regulation and the game-winning 17-footer over Anthony Davis with 1:15 left in the second overtime. Troy Daniels added 29 points on seven 3-pointers as the Grizzlies improved to 14-8 this season.People keep talking about it, but most of our games are close, Gasol said. I cant remember a blowout. We feel comfortable in those situations because we trust our defense and we dont panic.One of the Grizzlies other overtime games was a 104-99 double overtime win in Philadelphia on Nov. 23. In their latest win in the series, the Grizzlies rallied from an 11-point deficit as Mike Conley nearly had a triple-double of 25 points, nine rebounds and nine assists.Conley shot 3 of 17 when Philadelphia last beat the Grizzlies on Dec. 26, 2012 in Memphis. He played in seven games against the Sixers since but will miss his fifth game since injuring his lower back.Andrew Harrison has started for Conley and scored 12 points but shot 3-of-13 Monday, creating the need for big production from Daniels. Daniels has scored 69 points and hit 16 3-pointers in his last three games.Were just trying to find any way to win, Daniels said. Were just trying to scratch and crawl and win.The Sixers will be content if it is a close game, especially if they win. Philadelphia is winless since Nov. 21 and the collapse to Memphis two weeks ago began a seven-game losing streak.Four of those losses have been by single diigits and in each of those close losses, the Sixers have held a double-digit lead at some point.ddddddddddddThe latest instance was Mondays 106-98 home loss to the Denver Nuggets. Philadelphia held a 10-point lead in the second quarter but wilted after halftime by shooting 38.5 percent and committed 14 of its 19 turnovers.Joel Embiid had 16 points and five blocked shots but in the second half, the rookie center was 3-of-10 and committed three turnovers.Were used to seeing Joel have superhuman nights, Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said. It looked like his balance was off, and there were times where there were hands on balls (by defenders). Its just part of a young mans growth. I dont think we need to read too deeply into it.Embiids next chance to rebound from the rough second half will not be Tuesday. Since he is coming off missing two seasons following a pair of foot surgeries, Embiid has rested on the second nights of back-to-backs and in other instances.Philadelphia is 1-6 when Embiid has sat. The last instance was Saturdays one-point loss to the Boston Celtics when Jahlil Okafor scored 15 points as the starting center.Okafor did not play Monday due to an illness and will not play Tuesday.Without Embiid and Okafor, Richaun Holmes along with Ersan Ilyasova and Dario Saric will serve as Philadelphias primary big men.You get thin real quick, Brown said prior to Mondays game. Isnt it funny how life changes? First you have too many bigs. Now you dont have any. When we talk tomorrow, were going to look around and not have a lot of bigs.Besides Okafor, Robert Covington (left knee sprain, flu symptoms) and Jerryd Bayless (left wrist ligament) did not play and will not be available Tuesday.With our group, when you have no Jahlil, no Covington, theres just zero margin for error for whatever we are talking about, Brown said.
