Dewsbury Rams 20-4 Batley Bulldogs

Report

Neil Kelly’s second stint as Dewsbury Rams coach got off to a winning start with a 20-4 victory over Heavy Woollen rivals Batley Bulldogs. James Glover was the star player for the Rams, scoring 16 of their 20 points as they picked up their first win of the season at the Bulldogs’ expense.

Glover bagged the first 10 points of the contest inside 14 minutes thanks to a converted try and two penalties. Mikey Hayward responded for Batley with their only try of the contest but Dewsbury finished the half strong and they registered another four pointer through Dale Morton. Glover added the extras for a 16-4 half-time lead.

In the second half, any nerves on the hosts’ part were calmed courtesy of a penalty goal from Glover on 54 minutes before there was a spell of no points whatsoever. With ten minutes remaining, Glover finished the scoring with his sixth goal of proceedings.

A superb victory for the Rams, who have moved on to level points with 10th-placed Swinton Lions while Batley will be wanting to bounce back against London Broncos on Monday.
