Dewsbury Rams prop Jack Teanby insists that the team are looking to carry on their good start to the Super 8 fixtures.
The Rams won their first game comfortably beating Swinton Lions at home last Sunday, but now focus turns to the Heavy Woollen derby coming up this weekend away at Batley.
On what it means to win against Batley, Teanby said: “It’s always your intention to win every week and get a running streak going. However in the regular season nothing went our way, but going off of Sunday’s game against Swinton I now think we can go on a good run starting with Batley.
“It is always a real buzz to beat Batley but it’s always a tough physical game too, we have had the edge over them this year, but we can’t loose concentration or they will punish our mistakes.
Reflecting on the 40-7 win over Swinton last Sunday, Teanby thought the team put in a good performance.
“It was really good to get the victory as is any win but been the first game of the 8s it gives us that boost of confidence we need for the remaining fixtures.” He said
He continued: “However the win also gives us that vital cushion we want between us and the bottom two places in the league table.”
One of the most pleasing aspects of the performance was the fact that the Rams had seven different try scorers on the day, and whilst he didn’t get on the score sheet himself, Teanby was pleased that the tries were coming from all over the pitch.
He commented: “It’s always nice to win by a comfortable margin and to get seven tries by seven different people shows how hard we have worked in training. I could have scored one myself but just chose the wrong option and got held up.”
