Dewsbury Rams want to cause the “first shock of the season” in the Betfred Championship on Tuesday evening.

Rams visit Halifax (7.45pm) two days after the game was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.

That was their second postponement following a 36-10 loss to Leigh Centurions in round one and they are facing a confident Halifx side aiming to make it two wins from two after seeing off Sheffield Eagles in their opening game.

“It is such a difficult division,” Rams coach Lee Greenwood said.

“Every result so far has pretty much gone with the bigger club and bigger budget.

“That’s sort of how it goes. There’s been a lot of postponements, but after three weeks I don’t think there’s been one surprise result really.

“Every result has gone to form, but we would love to be the first side to cause a surprise.”

Rams competed with Leigh for more than half the game and Centurions have gone on to hammer Sheffield and York and sit top of the table.

“I’m confident we’re heading in the right direction,” Greenwood added.

“We did some decent stuff against Leigh and they are the best team in the division at the moment.

“We went with them for 50 minutes and we need to take a lot of that into Tuesday, hope Halifax aren’t quite as good as Leigh were and see what happens.”
