Featherstone Rovers 44-18 Bradford Bulls


Featherstone Rovers got back to winning ways in emphatic style as they beat Bradford Bulls 44-18 at the LD Nutrition Stadium. Braces from Scott Turner and Cory Aston in the first half helped the hosts to a 38-0 half-time lead.

Misi Taulapapa got the ball rolling for the Rovers with an acrobatic finish in the corner before Josh Hardcastle and Turner crossed in quick succession. Four tries in the final ten minutes saw the visitors completely collapse and leave them with no chance of a comeback. Andy Bostock and Turner both touched down as well as the ever-improving Aston, who finished the half with two tries to his name.

After the break, Bradford started the second period in good fashion as Ross Oakes intercepted a pass to touch down for his side’s first score of the afternoon. It didn’t take long for Featherstone to reply, however, as Darrell Griffin’s try put Featherstone over the 40 point mark. Bostock was sin-binned for unsportsmanlike conduct but the hosts didn’t leak any points without the prop. Two tries in the final quarter gave Bradford fans a little something to cheer about despite a poor Easter period which has seen losses against Halifax, and now Featherstone. Oakes completed his brace prior to Featherstone winger Taulapapa being sin-binned. Omari Caro touched down for the final try of the contest with three minutes left on the clock.
