Dewsbury Rams Tom Garratt was frustrated and disappointed that the Rams were defeated on Friday night by the Sheffield Eagles.

On the defeat to Sheffield, Garratt commented: “It is a tough one to take, it’s thinking back on the little things that happened in the game whereby you could have won. Sheffield are up the table, I thought we were in there and that it was winnable, it’s gutting.

“At the time you are hurt more from these close defeats than you are from the big 50-0 losses. We just need to dust ourselves down and move onto next week where hopefully we can beat Halifax.

“At crucial times we were giving away stupid penalties or making bad errors, myself included, I think we can all hold our hands up at some point in the game. If you count up all the things like that and take them away we could have been on a lot more points, we were just saying that in the dressing room, if we had won the games we could have then we wouldn’t be in the position we are in. We could have been fighting for playoffs instead of looking at trying to survive.”
