Championship preview: Dewsbury v Whitehaven

Dewsbury Rams could field an unchanged side as they search for their fourth successive Kingstone Press Championship victory in 2014.

The Rams are one of two teams to have made a perfect start to the season, and coach Glenn Morrison confirmed he has no new injury concerns ahead of Sunday’s match with Whitehaven.

Morrison said: “Everyone has come through OK and there are plenty of other boys training well and pushing to get a run out, too.”

He added: “We’re still not playing at our best, but we know where we’ve got to work.

“We’ll keep our feet on the ground; we’ve got hard work to do and we’re not getting too far ahead of ourselves.

“People talk and say Whitehaven haven’t won so we should get a win, but that’s not the case. They’re a tough side with quality players and they’ll be stinging after that loss last week.”

Whitehaven’s Craig Calvert is likely to miss out with a back injury suffered during the 52-0 defeat to Leigh Centurions.

Whitehaven coach Dave Woods said: “Dewsbury have bought really well and they’ve got a good, big squad, but we’ve got nothing to lose.

“We’ve just got to go there, pick ourselves up and keep working hard to get back to where we want to be.”
