COACH GLENN Morrison reckons the real Dewsbury Rams stood up in their 38-22 win at Sheffield Eagles.

The victory left Rams needing a point from Sunday’s final game at home to Oldham to secure a place in the Kingstone Press Championship Shield play-offs.

Rams bounced back from a 56-12 home thrashing by Whitehaven.

And Morrison said: “We knew it was semi-finals footy, we had to win to keep it in our hands and we did that.

“The players really ripped in and they showed the character I knew we had in this team. It was a really good win.”

Sheffield had scored 116 points in their two previous games and Morrison added: “They were probably the form team in the competition.

“We spoke about starting strong and we did.

“We scored two quick tries and then they had six sets in a row and we came out of that and scored in our next set.

“That showed the players’ character. I am really proud of them, but we have got to back that up now.”

Rams’ victory was marred by an injury to Scott Hale, who suffered a suspected torn pectoral muscle.

Morrison said: “He’s had no luck at all.

“It is torn; it is a long-term injury.

“It is not good news for him or for us.”
