Dewsbury Rams 0-31 Featherstone Rovers

An emphatic win for Featherstone Rovers against Dewsbury Rams on Sunday afternoon. Jon Sharp’s men were professional and proficient as they never looked threatened in this tie which saw three sin-binnings in the first half. Despite the rather big scoreline, the visitors were only ten points up at the interval after tries from off-season signings Misi Taulapapa and John Davies. Earlier on in the half, Dewsbury pair Jason Crookes and Luke Adamson were sin-binned on separate occasions for a high tackle and professional foul respectively while Taulapapa, on 34 minutes, was also sent from the field for a ten minute spell due to a high shot.

Taulapapa doubled his tally for the game on 49 minutes before the Rovers started to rack up the points from the boot, with Jamie Foster adding a penalty goal just minutes prior to Kyle Briggs slotting over a one pointer. Converted tries in the final quarter from Jamie Cording and Ian Hardman made sure that their side surpassed the 30 point mark on a brilliant day for the Rovers, who look more like a top four side by the week.

Prediction – Featherstone by 10

Result – Featherstone by 31
