Dewsbury Rams coach Lee Greenwood insists that Sunday’s Challenge Cup tie at Whitehaven is not his priority.

Greenwood says that some other players in the squad are likely to be involved despite an excellent win at Halifax in midweek.

He said: “There will be some lads playing we haven’t seen much of yet.

"We haven’t got the biggest squad but I want to see everyone putting their hand up to play.

“The lads who have played against Halifax did that, but there are others who are chomping at the bit and training well, so we’ll see who needs to come in.

“The 1895 Cup and Challenge Cup aren’t our main priority.

"That is to do as well as we can in the league and get as many points as possible as quickly as possible to secure our place in the Championship.

“Last year it took too long and it left it nervy for far too much of the season.

“Having said that we, of course, want to go up to Cumbria looking to win the game.”

It’s an approach that Whitehaven could take as well, but having lost all three Championship games so far there’s more urgency for them in the need to win.

Assistant coach Jonty Gorley said: “We just want a win, however ugly, to get us going and build some confidence.

“Obviously our best effort was at London but there were times on Sunday against Oldham when we got into good positions which we should have been able to finish off and win the game.

“We did score three tries to their two, and one of Oldham’s was the controversial penalty try.

“Outscoring your opponents like that should mean you can go on and win the game.”

Whitehaven will have a late fitness check on winger Andrew Bulman, who suffered a back strain ahead of the Oldham game and missed out.

Sam Forrester, available to play tomorrow but set to miss out against Toulouse next week through suspension for a trip which resulted in the penalty try against the Roughyeds, will also have a test on an ankle problem.

Brett Phillips will be unavailable through a one-match suspension which was also handed out for a trip, while Sam Dowsett, Connor Holliday, Chris Taylor and Glenn Riley are all still on the injured list.
