Bradford Bulls 19-20 Hull Kingston Rovers


Hull Kingston Rovers beat Bradford Bulls in a thrilling top versus bottom battle at Bloomfield Road.

In the day one finale at the Summer Bash, the Bulls, revitalised by the introduction of Dane Chisholm, showed their worth with a great performance but it just wasn’t enough to defeat the Robins.

Tim Sheens’ Rovers side led 8-7 at the break but it was Bradford who opened the scoring through James Bentley after Chisholm placed a deft grubber into the in-goal.

Oscar Thomas converted. Hull KR responded through Andrew Heffernan, who carried on his superb scoring form. Ellis converted.

Bradford regained the lead through a Chisholm drop goal on 36 minutes but their East Yorkshire opponents had the final say with a penalty goal on the hooter.

Ellis extended Hull KR’s lead after the restart with another penalty but in reply, it was that man Chisholm again who came up with the goods.

The half-back intercepted a Maurice Blair pass and ran 95m to touch down on his second debut.

Two tries either side of the hour mark for the Robins gave the current top Championship club a relieving advantage but a late Ethan Ryan score made it 20-19.

However, the Robins held on for a win that they were made to work hard for.
