Dewsbury Rams are pleased to confirm that prop forward Jode Sheriffe has signed a new contract that will keep him at The Tetley’s Stadium until at least the end of the 2019 season.

Sheriffe joined the Rams ahead of the 2017 campaign and has quickly become a fan favourite following a string of determined performances in the middle of the park.

The 30-year-old previously played for Keighley Cougars and Featherstone Rovers and is also a Jamaican international.

Rams head coach Neil Kelly said: “Jode is a great player at this level and somebody who always gives his all.

“He’s the type of player we can build a team around.”
