Bradford Bulls 56-18 Dewsbury Rams

Bradford Bulls Odsal Stadium.


This match was billed as a relegation four-pointer and for a while, there wasn’t much to separate the two sides. However, an eight try barrage in the second half set Bradford apart from their fellow West Yorkshire opponents as the Provident Stadium side won 56-18. The Rams were 14-12 up at the interval thanks to tries from Jason Crookes and James Glover as well as a penalty courtesy of Paul Sykes. Brandon Wilkinson and Daniel Murray were the try-scorers for Bradford, who had to bide their time before hitting Dewsbury with several sucker punches.

Alex Brown crossed the whitewash for Dewsbury to further their lead in the 46th minute but something sparked the Bulls into life and there was no stopping them. Omari Caro started the fightback before Iliess Macani bagged a brace before the hour mark. Lee Smith, Jon Magrin and Colton Roche all touched down as the Bulls ran wild in the sunshine while Dewsbury were left shellshocked and unable to do anything productive. Magrin and Ross Oakes finished off the scoring with a try apiece in the final few minutes as the Bulls passed the 50 point mark and almost hit 60. Positive signs for Leigh Beattie’s men while Dewsbury will have a lot of soul searching to do in the week as their wait for a league win continues.
