BOSS GLENN Morrison was happy with Dewsbury Rams’ attitude and performance after they got their Kingstone Press Championship Shield campaign off to a winning start.
Rams ran in six tries in a 36-24 home victory over Swinton Lions and Morrison described it as a job well done.
“We played well,” said the coach.
“We got the game won and then we took our foot off the gas. I took a few players off towards the end and they scored three easy tries, which was a bit of a shame.
“But the game was won before that.
“We needed to get the game won, we did that and now we move on.”
The top four on the final table will contest the Shield semi-finals, with the bottom pair being relegated.
Rams are fourth, seven points above the danger zone and Morrison added: “It was important to get off to a good start.
“If we can win this Sunday as well [at Workington], we will be looking up, instead of over our shoulder.
“Relegation should be out of reach. We are one from one, so we can look forward to the next games.”
Morrison said Andy Kain suffered a sore shoulder and Rob Spicer carried an injury into the game, but Rams came through with no major new fitness concerns.
