Rams look to go out on a high

Dewsbury Rams coach Warren Jowitt is hoping to finish the year in spectacular style when his side’s season ends on Sunday.

The Rams host Barrow Raiders in their final Co-operative Championship fixture of 2010, seven days after beating Whitehaven 48-10.

Jowitt said: “It was good to get a win at Whitehaven, but the score probably flattered us a little bit. The future’s bright for Whitehaven, they had us on the rack a few times.

“This week it will be a tough encounter. Barrow are a quality side. They’re up there at the top of the league with Halifax and Leigh.

“We know it’s going to be a tough game, but we’re in form at the moment. We’ve been playing well. We’ve got five wins out of our last seven.

“We know it’s a big ask, but if we play as a team and do what we can do then it will be a good game.”

Barrow coach Steve McCormack is boosted by the return of Richard Fletcher and Matt James.

Fletcher has recovered from a knee injury, while James could return after three months out with an ankle problem.

Liam Campbell (shoulder) remains sidelined, but could be back for the play-offs. However, Rob Roberts looks set to miss the rest of the season with a back injury.

Raiders beat Keighley 54-0 last week in a display that has given McCormack plenty of encouragement.

He said: “It’s nice to see that we are enjoying defending and we are working for each other – that’s a good sign for us.”
