DEWSBURY RAMS’ 22-20 defeat at Workington Town has been blamed on poor game management.

Rams looked to be on course for two crucial points in the Kingstone Press Championship, but Matty Gee crossed for Town to level the scores with two minutes remaining and Jarrod Sammut landed a winning conversion from the touchline.

The defeat left Rams ninth in the table and in danger of being dragged into a relegation battle in the bottom-eights.

“It has been the tale of our season, not being able to manage games and manage wins,” Rams boss Glenn Morrison admitted.

“In the first half we were outstanding, playing into a massive wind. I thought if we could go in just a few points behind we would be all right, but we went in eight points up.

“We just had to manage the second half and we could not do it. We came up with some poor plays. We kicked out on the full in the last minute inside our 20 and they scored and kicked the goal from the sideline to win it. It was such an important game, it is not good enough.”

Rams face another four-pointer on Sunday at home to Swinton, who are two places and one point above them in the table.

Morrison’s side are likely to be without Shane Grady, who has suffered a recurrence of a shoulder injury.

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