Dewsbury Rams 20 Workington Town 20: Kingstone Press Round 16 Match Review

A draw was probably the right result and one that I’m Sure Town fans would have snatched your hand off before their trip to the Tetley’s Stadium although if it wasn’t for the usually reliable Carl Forber missing two conversion attempts at goal Town would have taken all two points.

Most of the scoring including the Rams all three tries was done in the first half but it was the Cumbrians who stuck first through Rhodri Lloyd who has scored in all three games he has played for Town on Dual Registration this season in the 5th minute. Rams quickly hit back scoring just 5 minutes later through centre Dalton Grant. Both teams traded another two tries but it was the accuracy of half back Brett Seymour’s attempts at goal that mean the Rams went in at half time four points ahead.

It was an tight second half with the only points for both sides coming in the final three minutes. A Brett Seymour penalty on the 77th minute seemed to seal victory for the home side despite what Coach Glenn Morrison called a “Poor Performance and I feel I should apologise to the fans. Like last week against Doncaster we just didn’t turn up.”

From the resulting kick off Town regained the ball after going short and managed to get close to the Rams line inside the resulting set and got the ball wide to the recently returned Elliot Miller who crossed with a miraculous finish out wide to the send the visiting fans into a nervous frenzy. But they needn’t have worried as Forber stepped up from the touchline to convert to grab the draw after the hooter. Coach Phil Vievers spoke in a jubilant mood after the game, “We weren’t clinical enough in attack but credit to the boys for staying in there and credit to Carl Forber for the kick.”
