Boss Glenn Morrison has mixed feelings about Dewsbury Rams’ win over Batley Bulldogs at the Kingstone Press Championship’s Summer Bash.
Rams climbed to fourth in the table following their 19-12 derby win two days ago, but Morrison was disappointed with his team’s performance in front of the Sky TV cameras.
“It was another of those games when we didn’t play as well as we could have done, but we were able to grind out a win,” Morrison reflected.
“It was our third game in a week, so it was pretty good to be able to do that.
“But, it was a big occasion and we’re disappointed we couldn’t show our best game on TV.
“The boys wanted to show how good they really are.
“But it was a derby and any win in a derby is a good win.”
Seasoned forward Paul Jackson is in doubt for Sunday’s game at home to bottom-fo-the-table Doncaster after suffering a back spasm playing against Batley.
Meanwhile, Morrison confirmed he is fully focused on Rams, despite being linked with the coaching vacancy at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.
“They contacted the boss (chairman Mark Sawyer), but that’s as far as it has gone,” said Morrison – a former Wakefield captain and assistant-coach.
“I am just concentrating on the job here.
“I want to keep us up as high as possible in the table.”
