Report

Bradford Bulls, fresh from their first victory of the season in round three, backed up their success with another win as they beat Toulouse Olympique 29-22 at the Provident Stadium. A hat-trick from Gavin Marguerite wasn’t enough to give the French side their first away win in the Championship.

The Bulls held a sizeable advantage at half-time as they went into the break 22-6, however it was Toulouse who started the better of the two sides. Marguerite got on the scoresheet inside two minutes before Iliess Macani, James Bentley and Ethan Ryan all touched down for the Bulls to give them a 16-6 lead. Bradford were helped by Rhys Curran’s sin-binning after eight minutes. The barrage of Bulls tries continued when Scott Moore notched his first for the West Yorkshire club. With a three score lead at the interval, Bradford were in a great position and things got even better as they registered the first try of the second period.

On 63 minutes, Ross Oakes scored for the hosts as they looked to have wrapped up the win but they did end up having to graft for their victory. Marguerite completed his hat-trick with a quick double-salvo, either side of a Stan Robin try, as the gap was closed to just six points with over ten minutes to go. However, the Bulls saw out the game in a professional manner thanks to an Oscar Thomas drop goal.
