DEWSBURY RAMS coach Glenn Morrison has admitted he would consider taking the Bradford Bulls head coaching role – if an approach was made.
Earlier this week the Super League relegation candidates sacked head coach Francis Cummins and assistant Lee Saint Hilaire and are on the hunt for a replacement.
Morrison has been linked with the role as he played for the Bulls between 2007 and 2009 and was made vice-captain, as well as picking up a number of accolades during his spell there.
The Dewsbury coach, who recently extended his stay at the club until 2016, says he is committed to building with the Rams – but if an approach was made he may consider it.
Morrison said: “Obviously the Bulls are a club close to my heart and if an approach was made I would think about it.
“I’m trying to stay clear of the situation and I am concentrating on the Rams at the moment.
“I have received no approach from Bradford and my job at the moment is to keep building this Dewsbury side and getting us as high up the table as possible.”
Following two losses in as many weeks against Featherstone and Sheffield the Rams now face another top-four side with Doncaster are the visitors to the Tetley’s Stadium on Sunday (3pm).
Dewsbury have already had success against the high-flying Dons this season, inflicting a 20-12 defeat on them at Keepmoat Stadium.
“I think that the Doncaster game will be tougher than last week,” added Morrison
“They are up at the top, they are playing with confidence and they probably have a better squad than the last time we faced them.
“Doncaster will want to win every game and I don’t think they will be seeing it as a chance for revenge, just another game to win.
“When you have a player like Paul Cooke running the show you can’t give him any time.
“They also have Richard Whiting in their side who is a quality Super League player.”
The Rams could be bolstered by the return of injured forward Rob Spicer (ribs) for the fixture.
Morrison admits that injuries have been a problem for the Rams but says they always knew that this period of the season would be difficult.
“We knew this would be a tough period, and we needed to pick up as many points as possible,” he continued
“The more points we pick up here the more teams we have below us in the table.
“We are building towards the end of the season run-in when we play a lot of the teams below us.”
