Hull Kingston Rovers 54-24 Bradford Bulls

Hull Kingston Rovers 48-0 Oldham RLFC


Hull Kingston Rovers’ first game back in the Championship ended with a 30 point victory over a youthful Bradford Bulls side, who were coached by Leigh Beattie. The hosts led 30-12 at the break after tries from Andrew Heffernan, James Donaldson, Ryan Shaw and a double courtesy of Nick Scruton. Bradford’s two tries in the opening 40 minutes came from Liam Kirk and Ross Oakes.

In the second half, four pointers from Jamie Greenwood, Jamie Ellis and Adam Quinlan made sure there wouldn’t be a shock Bulls victory in the first game of the season. Ethan Ryan and Heffernan exchanged tries for both sides in the final quarter before Iliess Macani touched down for the final try of the contest four minutes from time.

Job done for Hull KR although Bradford will be pretty pleased with the way they competed against a side who have had a lot more preparation for the season.
