Dewsbury Rams are just 80 minutes away from a place in the inaugural Kingstone Press Championship Shield Grand Final.

The Rams will hope a bumper crowd will roar them on when they welcome full-timers London Broncos to Tetley’s Stadium in Sunday’s semi-final (kick off 3pm).

The Rams have already beaten London three times in the Championship and Super Eights, while they also overcame the Broncos in a pre-season friendly.

However, coach Glenn Morrison believes the earlier games will have little bearing as the Championship campaign reaches the knock-out stages.

Morrison said: “We have worked hard all year and go into the game confident but the form guide goes out of the window in finals footy.

“Whoever stands up to be counted and works the hardest on the day will win and there is a lot on the line.”

Morrison also believes the home crowd have a big part to play and is urging Rams supporters to get behind the side and roar them to next week’s Grand Final.

Morrison added: “The fans have been great for us all year, both at home and those who travel with us away.

“I hope there is a big crowd, plenty of red, amber and black there and the fans give us the vocal support, which I am sure they will.

“The club hasn’t had any silverware for a lot of years but as a squad and a club we are all together and it would be great if we could give the fans a day out at a Grand Final.

“The second team won their final and we now look to complete the double.”

Shane Grady trained on Wednesday following a calf strain, while Morrison is also confident Karl Pryce and Aaron Brown will be fit after picking up knocks in last week’s win over Workington.
