DEWSBURY RAMS and Batley Bulldogs will be out to show what semi-professional teams can do against full-time opposition in the Kingstone Press Championship tomorrow, writes PETER SMITH.

Two sides with a 100 per cent record meet at Tetley’s Stadium (3pm), but hosts Dewsbury have lost all four games so far and Hull KR won their five.

“There’s no pressure on us,” Rams coach Glenn Morrison said. “Nobody is expecting us to win so we’ve just got to put in a good performance.

“It’s at our home ground and we want to do our best.”

Morrison added: “We know we can lift and if we play at our best we can compete.

“That’s what we’re looking for this week, a good performance.”

Coach Matt Diskin will be up against the club he left last year when Batley travel to Bradford Bulls (3pm).

He said: “It’s a big one, Bradford have been through a lot, but I know from my time there they have got some very talented young kids with great potential and they are going to be a massive threat.”

Batley are on a two-game winning run and Diskin added: “They were contrasting performances, we turned on the style against Sheffield and ground it out against Swinton. We need to get some consistency. There’s still room for improvement, but as the grounds dry out our performance will improve.”

Hull KR goalkicker Jamie Ellis put the boot into Dewsbury at every opportunity.
