Sheffield Eagles 52-16 Bradford Bulls


Sheffield Eagles hammered Bradford Bulls 52-16 at the Beaumont Legal Stadium, avenging their defeat to Leigh Beattie’s men earlier on in the season.

The Eagles got off to a great start with the opening three tries of the afternoon. Ryan Millar, Sam Scott and Scott Wheeldon all crossed the whitewash for the Eagles who had Simon Brown to thank for three conversions. With an 18-0 deficit, Bradford needed to score the next try but unfortunately for them it was the Eagles’ Liam Johnson who crossed the whitewash after a break from Garry Lo. Brown converted for 24-0, which was the score at the interval.

After the restart, Matty Fozard carried on his side’s great work from the first half with the opening try of the second period. Brown converted, and he did the same after the hooker crossed the whitewash once again ten minutes later. In the final quarter, Sheffield debutant James Kelly touched down to start his career with Mark Aston’s side in style. Brown converted to make it 42-0. Bradford’s soft defending was exploited further when Kyle Trout powered over as the hosts moved ever closer to the half century. The Bulls gave their fans, or at least those that hadn’t gone home, two tries to cheer in quick succession thanks to Oscar Thomas and Johnny Campbell. Keyes added one conversion to his name. Evan Hodgson and Scott exchanged tries in the last few minutes as Sheffield got over the 50 point mark.
