Dewsbury Rams head coach Neil Kelly was delighted with the victory on Friday night in Sheffield.

The Rams defeated the Eagles 30-20 to gain two more vital points in the Championship Shield.

On the performance Kelly said: “First of all any win at Sheffield is a good win. I thought it was a jekyll and Hyde performance really. For all we reached brilliance in some stages, we put together some great sets. I thought we defended superbly well even though we conceded 20 odd points. Ultimately I think that was the biggest factor in our victory.

“It was our ball control in the first half which has to be better certainly. Our discipline in the first half let us down. That was then putting pressure on our defence. However I return to where I started I thought it was a great victory over the 80 minutes.

“The players at half time listened to what we said, there was no hysteria. They took it on board and overall in the second half they did what we asked them to do. Every now and again we flirted by doing the wrong thing and that allowed them back into the game. It probably made the game a bit closer and harder than what it needed to be.

“We scored some really good tries which was nice to see. We could’ve scored some others. Its a bit frustrating that it’s taken all year to recognise that we are a good side.

“We are looking to the next four games to do something instead of letting the season fizzle out. We are looking to finish on a high.

“I want to win every game be it Barrow at home next Sunday or Featherstone the week after. Sometimes we have shown the form and justified that feeling and the more we eradicate the periods of play that make that feeling and desire look a bit silly then the better.”

Whilst Kelly put an emphasis on how well the whole team played he did give comment on some individual performances.

Firstly on Brad Delaney who scored two tries on the night, Kelly said: “Funny enough when we put ourselves under pressure late in the first half I was contemplating bringing Brad off.

He wasn’t on the pitch for his defensive qualities and I thought we were asking him to defend for long periods. I was thinking of putting Tobias Richardson on and sliding Browny (Aaron Brown) out to scrum half because that would have strengthened us defensively. However Brad did everything he was asked of him. In the end I am glad I didn’t bring him off as he justified my selection in him.

“To be honest when I said I was thinking about bringing him off, I knew his dad would have had a word with him at half time. So that probably worked well for him in the end.”

Kelly also praised Rob Worrincy for his performance after coming back from a long term injury.

Kelly commented:” I thought Rob was superb for us tonight. He looked rusty at times but overall was superb.

“We’ve put him straight back in and he’s justified his place. He’s shown what we have been missing. We wanted that player who was enthusiastic and wanted to take those carries into the middle with pace.

“On another night he might have scored two or three tries but overall we are happy he’s made his comeback and played really well.”

On other individuals Kelly said: “I thought the pack did well, Jack Teanby did OK as did Lucas Walshaw who put 80 minutes in again, he put a great defensive effort in. I also thought Paul Sykes did well.

“Overall though it’s hard to pick people out because we played well as a team.”
