DEWSBURY RAMS coach Glenn Morrison says if any players fancy a game, he will fit them in.

Rams, already low on fit troops, suffered a major blow in their 20-6 home loss to London Broncos two days ago when prop Toby Adamson suffered a dislocated elbow.

Morrison admitted a lack of funds makes it difficult to bolster his squad and he said: “If anyone out there wants to come and play they can walk through the door at the moment!”

Half-back Liam Coe – signed from West Bowling after a spell with Hemel Stags – and forward Daniel Igbinedon, who is on loan from Castleford Tigers, made their debuts against London.

“Liam did a good job,” Morrison said. “He just needs more experience to help him along.

“I brought Iggy [Igbinedon] in to run hard and tackle hard and he did that. He threw his body about and I was pleased with him.”

Rams also included Wakefield Trinity loose-forward Chris Annakin on dual-registration.

“I have coached him since he was 18,” Morrison said.

“He always puts in 100 per cent and he did that – he was outstanding and he played 80 minutes.”

Rams have also signed former Batley Bulldogs and Salford back Alex Brown.
