DEWSBURY RAMS coach Glenn Morrison was happy with the bonus point his team took from their 36-24 defeat at Halifax.

Ryan Wright’s long-range try, in the final moments, meant Rams did not leave the Shay empty-handed and Morrison felt it was well-deserved.

“We started pretty well,” said the coach, whose team were without a host of first-choice players.

“We played really well for the first 20 minutes, but then we fell away.

“That was to do with having players out of position and players coming in who had not played for a while.

“They tried hard to get the bonus point at the end, they deserved it and I was proud of their effort.”

Another bonus was the fact Rams came through the game with no major new injuries.

“We had 11 players unavailable, so that made it tough,” Morrison added. “It is a tough place to go anyway, because they are playing some good footy at the moment and they are trying to push up for second spot.

“To get a bonus point was good, and it was good we got through without any new injuries.

“I kept away from the physio – I didn’t want to look at him so he couldn’t tell me any bad news.”
