Rams were 18-0 up by half-time and looked to be on track to nil their amateur opponents. But second-row Benn Arbon cracked their duck, and loose-forward Ryan Wilson landed the extras.

Winger Andy Gabriel crossed twice and full-back Dale Morton also touched down for Dewsbury, with Liam Finn tagging on four conversions.

Heavy Woollen neighbours Batley Bulldogs had a relatively comfortable Challenge Cup fourth-round outing, disposing of gallant visitors Lock Lane, 62-6. Winger Wayne Reittie bagged a try hat-trick, while no fewer than six other Batley players also secured tries. The sextet was scrum-half Danny Yates, packman Tyler Dickinson, Michael Ward, centre Louis Jouffret (2), Sam Smeaton (2) and Tom Hemmingway.
