coach glenn Morrison says Dewsbury Rams have set themselves a standard for the rest of the season, after coming close to ending Kingstone Press Championship leaders Leigh Centurions’ 100 per cent record.
Rams, who have slipped two places to sixth in the table, were pipped 32-28 after battling back from 22-6 down at half-time.
And Morrison reflected: “Everybody tried hard and we played really well. It’s disappointing, because I thought we should have won the game really.
“Even speaking to their chairman after the game, he thought they had a bit of luck.
“A couple of individual errors we made and they capitalised on gave them four points and there was four points in it at the end.
“It shows we are getting there. It would have been good to get the win, but it shows we are on the way up.”
Rams’ battling performance was despite the loss of full-back Kieran Hyde and prop Tom Hemingway to leg injuries.
“We played the second half with only two on the bench and that made it tough,” Morrison admitted. “We had people playing out of position, but we had a real dig.”
Of Hyde and Hemingway, the coach, whose team are at home to Hunslet Hawks on Sunday, added: “We will have to see how they are this week, but they could not go back on.”
