Bradford Bulls 12-22 Halifax RLFC

Report

Halifax returned to the top four of the Championship with a 22-12 victory over Bradford Bulls at the Provident Stadium. Richard Marshall’s side had been replaced by London Broncos, who beat Toulouse Olympique earlier on in the day, but the victory over Bulls made sure they went into Easter Monday in fourth place. James Saltonstall bagged a brace for the visitors, who will be confident heading into their next match against Oldham at MBi Shay.

Halifax were 10-0 up at the break thanks to tries from Saltonstall and Shane Grady. The visitors capitalised well for Grady’s try, as Bradford winger Johnny Campbell had been sin-binned moments earlier for a late tackle.

In the second half, Moore was sin-binned but no damage was done while he was off the field and once he returned Fax extended their lead. Ben Johnston dotted down to send the visiting fans into celebration and Steve Tyrer converted for a 16-0 lead. With 14 minutes remaining, Iliess Macani got Bradford on the scoresheet with their first try of the game to breathe some life into Leigh Beattie’s men. Thomas converted but their hope was short-lived due to Saltonstall completing his brace soon after. Tyrer missed the conversion but made amends with a penalty. Not even if an Ethan Ryan try late in the day could dampen the spirits of the Fax players, who will be happy to come away from Odsal with two more competition points.
