Dewsbury Rams will today recall Matty Tebb from his loan deal at Hunslet and he is likely to feature in Sunday’s 19-man squad to face the Hawks.

Rams coach Glenn Morrison said he would prefer not to play Tebb against the side where he has spent the last month but may be forced to as injuries have again struck.

Aaron Brown is also fit again and could also play on Sunday in what Morrison describes as a ‘must win’ game.

Morrison added: “We have got to get the points but Hunslet are in exactly the same position as they are playing to stay in the Championship next season.

“We know it will be a really tough game and they will have some players available from Leeds Rhinos.

“It’s not an ideal situation but injuries mean we will re-call Matty from his loan deal.

“This is the downfall of the loan system but we have to look after ourselves and we sent Matty out to get some game time and he will now come back into the mix.”

Morrison was pleased with his side’s effort at Whitehaven last Thursday, despite the Rams being edged out 16-15 to a late penalty goal.

The Australian added: “I thought we were in control for the majority of the game and even right up until the end.

“It was only a couple of silly errors and wrong decisions in the second half which cost us but you can’t afford to do that if we are to going make the play-offs and we have had a look at that in training this week.

“Every game is tough this year and you have to be on your game every time. We will be treating Sunday as another Grand Final.”

Dewsbury remain seventh but it will be a close run thing if they are to finish in the top eight with Sunday’s clash against Hunslet and the home game with play-off rivals Doncaster on August 22 set to prove decisive.
