Dewsbury Rams head coach Lee Greenwood is happy that his side were able to negotiate a tricky fourth round draw against West Hull with a 32-6 victory over the amateur side.
Greenwood praised the opposition, knowing they would be a tough test first of all, he said: “Credit to West Hull, they are a good amateur side who don’t just come to spoil the game, they come to play rugby and they had a good dig and deserved to score their try at the end.
“Defensively form minute one we looked solid and that was a real positive, because West Hull are a good side, they are undefeated this season, they got their try at the end too.”
Greenwood also reflected on the Rams performance saying whilst he was pleased with the result, he also would have liked to have seen his side score a few more tries.
He commented: “I wouldn’t necessarily call it professional, that is where you prepare right and some people didn’t do that. I would say it was a comfortable performance, it is hard to take much out of it as we never really pulled away and looked like we may rack a score up.
“We looked comfortable in defence for the most part but we did give them quite a few opportunities, defensively we did look solid.
“From an individual view you probably want to come in, play well and score some tires in these types of games. For Cam to come in he has done well and Gabriel scored a couple as well, so they have got something out of it for sure.
“I suppose cup games is all about getting the result and going through, for some lads it was an opportunity to play and some did take it and some haven’t. From a performance aspect I can use the word comfortable again, but that isn’t a bad thing when an amateur team comes because you know what you might get when these teams come. If it’s a close game then everyone can be on edge going into the final ten minutes, but it wasn’t that and so being comfortable is the best compliment I can pay us.
“Another positive was that we have been able to rest a few lads that have got a few injuries and knocks. If it was a semi-final/final some will have wanted to play, but now they have had the chance to rest and then work hard in training, we’ll check on them Tuesday for availability for our game against Bradford.”
