DEWSBURY RAMS have achieved their first goal for the season, but coach Glenn Morrison says they haven’t finished.

Rams secured fourth spot in the Kingstone Press Championship Shield with a 30-12 win over Oldham two days ago.

They will travel to Shield leaders Bradford Bulls – a team they have beaten twice this year – for a semi-final on Sunday.

Morrison said: “Our goal was to get into the semi-finals and then try and push on. We haven’t done it easy, we’ve had some really good, memorable victories and some games we would like to forget, but we have got to where we needed to be and we’ve been playing some good footy for the last month, bar the game against Whitehaven. It has been a tough year with injuries and different things, but we have given ourselves a chance of making the final.”

Morrison was pleased with the way his team handled a tough challenge against Oldham. He said: “We did what we needed to. It was a pretty clinical, controlled game from us, which is good going into the semi’ this weekend.”

Rams will face Bradford without Mitch Stringer, who suffered medial knee ligament damage against Oldham. Aaron Brown (ankle) is a fitness doubt and on-loan Bulls duo Lucas Walsh and Etu Uaisele are unavailable.
