Rotating Rams look to stop Leigh

DEWSBURY coach Glenn Morrison says “it’s a good time to be at the club” after his side became the first team to defeat London in the capital.

It was the Rams’ sixth win of the season and moves Morrison’s side up to fourth in the Championship table.

“It’s a fair reflection. Before the season we aimed for six wins after 10 games and that’s where we’re at,” the Rams boss said.

“Being honest, we could have got a few more, but we’re sitting in fourth. We just want to build and improve on last season’s finish.”

Morrison will be looking for further improvement as he prepares his team for Leigh Centurions, who come to the Tetley’s Stadium on Sunday (3pm).

Leigh are unbeaten this season and have knocked Salford Red Devils out of the Challenge Cup.

Paul Rowley’s side have scored 421 points and conceded just over 100, as they look to secure back-to-back league titles.

Rams coach Morrison says his team are in for a difficult game.

“We know it’s going to be tough, they are a quality full-time team that want to be in Super League.

“We have to prepare well and try to break them down. You never know, they may come here not on their game, and we could turn them over,” he said.

Dewsbury could make changes for Sunday’s clash as Morrison continues to rotate his team.

“It’s about having a good squad in this league, you need that to be competitive. It’s not always about the best 17,” Morrison added.

“We put out the best players for the job, and the best to beat the opponents in front of us.

“We’ve rotated in recent weeks, and we may rotate again and bring some players back.”

In this win over the Broncos Brett Seymour and Callan Beckett came into the team, and their coach says places in the side will become even tougher when players return from injury.

“Ryan Fieldhouse isn’t too far off – we brought him in as an attacking full-back.

“Shane Grady is three weeks away, Sam Wood and Steve Nash are recovering and Greg Scott has already played for the reserves – it’s looking good.”

Head coach Morrison said even though he hasn’t been full satisfied with his team’s performances, it’s good to see the Rams still picking up wins.

“It’s certainly a positive because we know we’ve got more in the tank. The win at London was our fifth straight victory on the road, and part of that is down to the away supporters.”

• Dewsbury hooker Wayne Godwin, who is on loan at Salford, suffered damage to his teeth in their game against Castleford, and has been ruled out for the Red Devils.
