DEWSBURY RAMS are going into the Kingstone Press Championship Shield play-offs in buoyant mood, but coach Glenn Morrison has warned against over-confidence.
Rams finished three points behind table-topping Featherstone Rovers and will play host to London Broncos in Sunday’s second versus third semi-final, following a 27-14 home win over fourth-placed Workington Town two days ago.
“Over the last month we’ve beaten London, Featherstone and Workington and we’re confident if we turn up on the day we can get the job done,” Morrison reflected. But semi-finals footy is different, form goes out of the window and we have to prepare well.”
Morrison was pleased with the way Rams dealt with Workington, who will visit Featherstone in the other semi-final.
He said: “The first half was pretty clinical, we didn’t do much wrong at all. We defended really strongly and with the ball we were on the money, we scored some good tries.
“In the second half we came up with a couple of errors and penalties that didn’t need to be given away, but our defence was strong and that was pleasing.
“They played well and they are a strong side, so it was good to get a win over them.”
Karl Pryce (hamstring) and Aaron Brown (eye) were taken off as a precaution, but Morrison is confident both will be available for Sunday.
