Bradford Bulls’ woes worsen with comprehensive defeat to London Broncos

It’s been a turbulent time at Odsal recently. The Bulls may have finally appointed their new permanent coach in Mark Dunning after his spell at interim boss.

Since then, the Bulls were hit for 50 by Newcastle live on Premier Sports last week. That night rumours circulated that Chairman Nigel Wood had had altercation with fans with reports suggesting that he had disrespected supporters.

This was followed by a statement from Wood denying these reports before the Fans Forum event which was greeted by a controversial response on social media.

So, the last thing Bradford needed today was another defeat against one of the struggling teams in the Championship.

The Bulls trailed 12-6 at the break before a try from Flanagan levelled matters and it looked like the home side would kick on from there but in truth the opposite happened.

Four minutes later they trailed again thanks to a try from Paul Ulberg before Leyland nudged the Broncos further ahead with a penalty to make it 20-12.

With 15 minutes to go, Bradford might have had a chance to battle back but they were instead hit with a further two tries with Moceidreke scoring a superb long range effort after Sam Hall had all but wrapped up the win for the Broncos.

It’s the last thing Bradford needed and leaves extra pressure on the Bulls ahead of their trip to Barrow next week.
