The Yorkshire Rams moved back past 0.500 with a 30-6 victory over Yorkshire neighbours the Doncaster Mustangs. In hot and muggy conditions, Doncaster recieved the opening kickoff and the first chance with the ball. After being forced into a quick 3 and out, they were forced to punt the ball away. With a good return taking the ball into the opposition half, the Rams were able to get rolling quickly. Inspite of needing two 4th down conversions to do so, Yorkshire were able to cap off the drive as Running Back Adim Irozuru walked into the end zone untouched.
6 touchdowns underlined a confident performance from the Yorkshire Rams offence as they defated the Gateshead Senators in a 38-24 decision to move to 3-2 and reinvigorate their 2014 campaign. Yorkshire opened up with the ball, and got into the endzone on their first drive of the day through a pinball run from Quarterback Henry Wareham as he evaded several would be tacklers for the opening score. Kicker James Sharrock tacked on the PAT for an early 7-0 lead.
6 second half interceptions saw the Yorkshire Rams fall to 2-2 with a 24-6 defeat to the Coventry Jets Sunday. After a tight opening to the game, with mental errors and penalty flags throughout, the Jets were able to get on the board first with a short field goal after a shanked Yorkshire Punt and a strong defensive stand. The Jets were to show their own defensive might soon after stopping the Rams on both a 4th down, and forcing a missed field goal after the Coventry long snapper misfired on a punt.
The Yorkshire Rams fell to 2-1 today at the hands of the Birmingham Bulls today in a 15-10 decision, in spite of a late comeback attempt from the home team. In a game that took place under glorious sunshine in South Leeds, the previously winless Bulls were able to stifle the Rams offence whilst getting themselves into the endzone twice in the first half to force the result.
Two second half touchdowns from running back Adim Irozuru secured a come from behind 17-6 victory for the Yorkshire Rams over the Lancashire Wolverines in wet and windy conditions at Blackburn Rugby Club.
Tomorrow (Saturday) sees the Yorkshire Rams travel across the Pennines to take on the Lancashire Wolverines in their own back yard in game 2 of their 2014 campaign. With last year's encounter finishing 22-7 in favour of the Black & Gold, the Rams will be looking for a repeat performance as they look to extend their undefeated start to the season.
