Kingstone Press Championship Round 8 preview: Doncaster v Dewsbury Rams

Doncaster are still chasing that elusive first win and Sunday will be another big test for Paul Cooke’s team.

“There’s no getting away from it, we’re in a real rut and the only way to get out of that is to work hard, stick together and hopefully things will turn for us,” he said.

“It’s going to be tough against Dewsbury. They’ve run Bradford really close and gone to Batley and got a result. I like the way Dewsbury play, I like Morro (coach Glenn Morrison) and his group of players and it will be a tough ask for us.

“We’re going to need to be very, very good to get something out of the game. The plan for us is to improve and get better and hopefully get over the line.”

Dewsbury Rams had a fine win over Batley Bulldogs on Good Friday and then turned in a creditable performance against Bradford Bulls.

Coach Glenn Morrison said: “It was good to go to Batley and get a win in the derby for the fans and for us. In the Bradford game I was proud of the boys for backing up but we will be disappointed we didn’t come away with more than we did.

“I’m reasonably happy; but we set high standards. I think we’re not quite where we need to be.”

On the challenge facing his team on Sunday, Morrison said: “Doncaster are a quality side who finished above us last year and their coach was coach of the year so they’re no easy beats.

“I think their record doesn’t do them justice because they’ve had some tough games.”
