DEWSBURY RAMS will travel to Kingstone Press Championship leaders Leigh Centurions tomorrow (3pm) with nothing to lose, coach Glenn Morrison says.

Teams finishing from fifth to eighth after tomorrow’s final round of matches will have four home games in the bottom-eights Championship Shield.

Only an unlikely sequence of results could deny Rams, who are seventh, that advantage and Morrison is in upbeat mood following last weekend’s victory over Swinton Lions. We’re not expected to beat Leigh so we’ve just got to concentrate on ourselves and our performance,” said the Dewsbury boss.

“After this week we have got seven games against teams around us on the table, so hopefully we can get through injury-free and with a good performance to send us into those games with something to build on.”

Leigh have not lost since Batley Bulldogs beat them in round one.

But Morrison recalled: “We’ve done well against them in the last few years; we’ve pushed them all the way and been unlucky.

“There’s only been a few points in it so we think we can go there and compete, but we know how tough it will be.

“Even if they rest a few they have still got Super League players coming in.”
