DEWSBURY RAMS’ latest loss was Glenn Morrison’s most disappointing as a coach, he says.

Injury-hit Rams looked to be on course for a first win in four games when they led 28-8 early in the second half at Sheffield Eagles, but the hosts hit back to win the Kingstone Press Championship clash 32-28.

“I felt sick after the game,” Morrison admitted.

“It was a must-win game and the boys knew it.

“We put ourselves in a position to win it, we could have been 50 points up at half-time, but we weren’t.

“We were still 28-8 up with 20 minutes to go and we should have put the game to bed if we were smart enough, but the boys weren’t.

“It is probably the most disappointed I have been at any team I have coached.”

The result was the last thing Rams needed ahead of Sunday’s home Ladbrokes Challenge Cup tie against Wigan Warriors.

Morrison felt they played well in the first half, but he said: “We spoke at half-time about still playing footy but playing smart and getting the game won.

“The boys went out and completed at 50 per cent in the second half, it was absolutely disgusting.”

James Glover had to go back on after being substituted with a knee problem.

Shane Grady suffered a hamstring twinge and Etu Uaisele had to go off due to a calf muscle problem.

Full-back Jimmy Watson scored a hat-trick of tries in the 32-18 win over Gloucestershire All Golds.
