Championship Preview: Featherstone Rovers v Dewsbury Rams

Featherstone Rovers coach Andy Hay is aiming to complete a five-star start to his new job by securing a fifth successive victory when his team face Dewsbury Rams on Sunday.
Loan signing Jason Crookes is expected to be available for Rovers, while Ben Blackmore has joined Featherstone on a two-and-a-half year deal.
Rams coach Glenn Morrison expects to be without Kieran Hyde and Jobe Murphy, who both suffered ankle injuries last week as Dewsbury won 38-18 against North Wales Crusaders.
Victory this week would move the Rams into the top four of the Kingstone Press Championship, but Morrison insists: “We’re not really looking at the table.
“We’ve let a couple of games go that we should have won, and we should be higher than we are, but we’re OK.”
On Featherstone, he added: “They’ve had a lot of turnover in players – they’ve brought another three Super League players in this week – and it’s going to be tough.
“They might take time to gel or they might fire. We’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves, and if we do that we’ll be all right.”
