Dewsbury Rams player James Glover is looking forward to this weekend’s game against Rochdale if selected. He believes it will be a tough test when facing the Hornets as they are still fighting for their lives for survival in the Betfred Championship.

On the upcoming fixture, Glover said: “Rochdale is going to be a tough challenge, they haven’t been winning but they’ve been putting up some decent performances over this shield period.

“They only come up short against Leigh last weekend, we’re just taking each game as it comes and I think we owe them from early on in the year at our place so it’ll be good to right a few wrongs again.”

Glover scored two tries in the Rams most recent game away at Featherstone Rovers, Dewsbury were defeated 40-28 on the day, but he says the players can be proud of their efforts despite the loss.

He commented: “It was tough game, we were very soft in defence with our first contact which lead them to quicken the game up. We made sloppy errors leading to tries as well, the effort was there and we didn’t give in but it just wasn’t our day,

“We didn’t really look at it to make it three wins in a row, we just concentrate on each game and look to put some wrongs right the following fixture.”

Finally on his two tries and conversion kick that he scored, he said:  “Everyone loves to get on the score sheet and when you’ve got other good players around you putting them on a plate for you, you take them with both hands.

“It’s tough with the kicking side, Sykesy (Paul Sykes) is a class kicker and has been throughout all of his 45 playing years. Haha I’m joking but yes if I get called on to take them then I just try my best to slot them over.”
