Dewsbury Rams 34-22 Toulouse Olympique


Dewsbury Rams picked up the victory of the weekend as they beat Toulouse Olympique 34-22 at Tetley’s Stadium. A magnificent win for Neil Kelly’s men, who have improved under the former Widnes boss since his arrival. Lucas Walshaw registered a brace for the West Yorkshire club while Paul Marcon’s hat-trick for Olympique was in vain.

It was Walshaw who broke the deadlock for the Rams in the seventh minute, with Paul Sykes converting. Toulouse replied in the shape of two tries from Marcon, converted by Mark Kheirallah. Sykes cut the deficit to four points by the break as he kicked a penalty goal in the last minute.

After the restart, Rhys Curran extended Toulouse’s lead but the French side won’t have envisaged what was about to come. Dewsbury notched four tries without reply as they sealed a vital win. Walshaw completed his brace before Macauley Hallett kept up his good start to life as a Ram with another score. Aaron Brown and Jode Sheriffe added four pointers apiece before Sykes kicked a penalty to rub salt into the wound. Marcon scored a consolation try with moments remaining of the match.
