Dewsbury Rams 38 – 16 Workington Town

The Rams has to score five tries in twenty minutes to put down a Workington Town side who lead at the break despite being down to 12 men for the last six minutes of the first half due to the sin binning of centre Declan Hulme.

Jason Crookes got the home side off to the perfect start as the centre rounded off a break from full back Josh Guzdek. Guzdek had found Crookes after the left hand side break and left Crookes with an easy run in.

Callum Phillips levelled the scores as he went underneath the posts and this allowed Carl Forber to put Town ahead with the conversion in the 14th minute. The home side regained the lead as Dalton Grant squeezed in at the corner eight minutes later. Reynolds missed both conversion attempts for the home side.

Town took the half time lead as Hulme went over in the corner, Forber missed the touchline conversion but the Cumbrians held on to their lead to half time despite the loss of Hulme for holding down after being placed on a team warning earlier on by Gareth Hewer.

The second half was just one dominated by the Rams as they scored five of their six second half tries in twenty second half minutes. Crookes and Grant went over for their second of the afternoon. They were followed by Dale Morton, Andy Kain and Josh Guzdek. Town looked shell shocked during this period and couldn’t find a way to get back into the game. They are still missing influential Jarrod Sammut and they missed his creative spark and influence leading them around the park. Town did grab a consolation try in the final minutes as Jason Mossop picked up a poor pass and went under the posts to score.

The rams had the final word as Kyle Trout scored just before the final hooter.

Next week Dewsbury travel to Bower Field as they take on Oldham and Workington welcome Halifax to the Zebra Claims Stadium.
