Barker in line for Rams captaincy.

Dwayne Barker could be in line to become the next Dewsbury Rams captain, Press Sport can reveal.
The 28yearold, who has previously played for Leeds, Hull Kingston Rovers, Castleford and Harlequins, joined the Rams from amateur side Hunslet Warriors in September having had time away from the professional game, and has impressed new boss Warren Jowitt during preseason training.
Jowitt has branded the secondrow forward as a ‘machine’ and revealed that he is one of three potential candidates for the captaincy role.
He said: “Dwayne is like a machine in training.
“He’s absolutely nonstop and he’s a very good leader.
“When things aren’t going well or mistakes are creeping in, he nips it in the bud and the players respond.
“The boys are already calling him the terminator and he’s definitely now a candidate for the captaincy role along with Rob Spicer and Craig Cook.
“I’m very happy with the way things are going at the minute. The lads are working overtime and I really cannot fault them.”
Jowitt has made many new signings since the Rams were saved from relegation in early October and admits he will face a selection headache as the preseason schedule nears.
He added: “Looking at the squad, I am certainly going to have a few headaches in terms of selection but what a brilliant headache to have.
“I don’t mind having too many quality players to pick from as appose to having to bring in players during the season.
“It can only be good for the club as we enter 2012.”
Meanwhile, Dewsbury, like Batley, missed out on being selected as hosts for a game or a training venue during the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.
