Dewsbury Rams 6-8 Swinton Lions

Dewsbury Rams 6-8 Swinton Lions


Swinton Lions made amends for their close defeat to London Broncos in round one by edging out Dewsbury Rams 8-6 at the Tetley’s Stadium. In a low scoring contest, the Lions had a 2-0 lead at half-time thanks to a Chris Atkin penalty after 18 minutes.

Dewsbury didn’t score a point in their first match of the season and it took until 55 minutes for the hosts to get on the board in this one. James Glover came off the bench to register Dewsbury’s first try of the year but Paul Sykes couldn’t convert. Just four minutes later, the experienced full-back made up for his earlier miss by kicking a penalty goal to extend his side’s lead to four points. However, despite plenty of dropped ball during the match, Swinton came up with the winning score late on in the tie courtesy of Liam Forsyth. Atkin was successful from the tee and the Lions fans were left to sing in the West Yorkshire rain to celebrate their first win of the season.
