DEWSBURY RAMS’ 24-12 home win over London Broncos was their best performance of the season, according to coach Glenn Morrison.

The victory two days ago completed a Kingstone Press Championship double over the former Super League outfit and Morrison said: “It was an outstanding defensive effort.

“We played for an hour with 12 men, after Ryan Fieldhouse was sent-off and it was a great win. We had a back-row on the wing and another in the centre, a winger at full-back and a front-rower in the back-row and it was our best performance of the season.

“We had a good win down in London as well and we beat Featherstone the week before, so it shows we can match the top teams if we play to our ability.

“Hopefully we are peaking at the right time, like we did last year.”

Rams – who are seventh in the table – lost former Bradford and Wigan back Karl Pryce with a broken toe at the end of the first quarter.

On loan Bradford hooker Nathan Conroy suffered concussion, but should be available for Sunday’s trip to Whitehaven.

Morrison admitted he was “a bit disappointed” with referee Tom Crashley’s decision to show Fieldhouse a red card and he added: “Both coaches had a few things they weren’t happy with.”
