Dewsbury Rams: Broadbent out to impress

Have your say

Former Challenge Cup winning team-mates Paul Broadbent and Mark Aston will go head-to-head in Dewsbury tomorrow as the Rams aim to end the season on a high.

Broadbent and Aston were both members of the Eagles team that won the 1998 Challenge Cup, but will put their friendship aside this weekend.

For Dewsbury caretaker coach Broadbent, it is the last chance to impress the Rams before they announce the permanent successor to Warren Jowitt this week.

Broadbent has won one and lost one of his two games to date, and was among a list of candidates for the job recently interviewed by the club.

Sheffield, meanwhile can still move up to fourth if they win at the Tetley’s Stadium and Batley Bulldogs lose at Halifax.

“We upped the ante in the game against Featherstone, and we’ll be looking to kick on again now,” Aston said.
