This afternoon 17 lads will finish a hard day’s work and then make their own way to the Tetley’s stadium. Ahead of them they have what might be one of the most physical and demanding games of many of their lives. They will be playing against players that just a few weeks ago were contending the world club challenge in Australia. Players who represented England in the world cup, players who are already winners of the Challenge Cup. The task that lay before them is as difficult as you or I could imagine.
At around 7pm those 17 lads will pull on one of the most historic jerseys in the British game; that same red, amber and black jersey pulled on by legends of time gone by such as Lance Todd, whose legacy lives on through the trophy which bears his name. There are of course countless others, all of whom have put their body on the line in the name of our club.
At 8pm the 2 teams will take to the field of the Tetley's Stadium. Admiration will have turned to respect and the biggest game at the Tetley’s stadium for many years will commence.
The eyes of the Rugby League world will descend upon us.
Be a part of something special, for tonight we represent 17 lads against all the odds, let’s cheer them, support them, respect them, and together – let’s be the Dewsbury Rams.
Good luck guys, do us proud!
Turnstiles and bars for tonight's game will be open from 6.30pm, the Bailey Bar will open at 6pm.
Please be advised, we have no segregation of supporters (per stand) in place tonight, this means both Wigan and Dewsbury supporters are free to stand where they wish. We urge Rams Supporters standing in the South Stand to arrive in good time so that Rams supporters can stand together.
