Dewsbury Rams laid down then perfect marker for the new season with an impressive 34-0 victory over London Broncos.

Despite the game being played in a mud-bath, the Rams produced a classy display to run in six tries, with stand off Ben Reynolds and prop Tony Tonks having excellent first outings for their new club.

Reynolds’ lovely long pass set up the opening try for Dalton Grant after just five minutes and the Leigh Centurions loanee landed a towering touchline goal.

Dewsbury had Kyle Trout sin-binned but scored twice while they were down to 12 men.

Toby Adamson benefited from a superb 40-20 by Reynolds when he barged over after 22 minutes and Reynolds converted.

Debutant Tonks then showed his capabilities by crashing over and Reynolds again goaled as the Rams led 18-0 at half-time.

Grant latched onto Toby Adamson’s long pass to score his second try after 49 minutes but Reynolds touchline conversion attempt was narrowly wide.

Jason Crookes scooped the ball up from acting half-back and showed great strength to force his way over for Dewsbury’s fifth try, which Reynolds improved.

Three minutes from full-time, Jack Teanby celebrated signing a contract extension with the Rams when he barged over for their final score and Reynolds tagged on his fifth goal to cap an impressive all-round Dewsbury performance.
