Kingstone Press Championship preview: Dewsbury Rams v Whitehaven

After a disappointing performance last week Glenn Morrison is looking for a much better performance from Dewsbury against Whitehaven.

“Against Hunslet, we just didn’t show up, the boys weren’t good enough and couldn’t get ourselves into the game,” he said.

Despite Whitehaven still seeking their first win, Morrison will not be taking them lightly. “There are no easy games, we said that last weekend and they hadn’t won a game either,” he said. “We’ve got to be switched on and want to get back on track straightaway, we can’t afford to turn up like we did last week.”

Newly-appointed coach Whitehaven coach James Coyle is enjoying the challenge. “The lads are responding well to what we’re trying to put in place. I’ve got a nice little team together now with Brett Seymour and James Robinson and we’re trying to get better each week.

“As long as we keep improving we’ll be happy and things that we’re looking at in training we’re improving on,” he said.

Despite losing to Sheffield Eagles, Coyle says he can take some positives going into the game against Dewsbury. “Obviously it was a setback not getting the result, but I think we did quite a few things right which possibly gives ourselves a chance in the game on Sunday.

“We’ve got to stay positive, we’ve got a lot of new players and we’re trying to get them to play together. We’ve just got to stay upbeat and positive and keep moving forward.”
