Full Time Report

BRADFORD BULLS suffered a 50-0 defeat at the hands of high-flying St Helens this afternoon. 

Francis Cummins' side began brightly but fell behind prior to the quarter-hour mark and failed to recover.

Lee Gaskell impressed against his former club and Elliot Kear looked lively, after being drafted in at full-back.

Luke Gale and Manase Manuokafoa were ruled out injured less than 24 hours prior to kick-off, forcing coach Cummins to reshuffle his line-up.

Jon Wilkin powered over to open the St Helens account after 12 minutes and the visitors extended their advantage shortly before the half-hour through stand-out scrum-half Luke Walsh, who kicked seven goals from nine attempts.

The away side made it two tries in as many minutes when Jonny Lomax crashed over.

And their first-half tally was complete, with just seconds of the first half to spare, as Wilkin bagged his second of the afternoon.

Bradford needed to respond after the interval but proved unable to halt the Lancashire side's charge.

Tom Makinson and Adam Swift grabbed tries in quick succession and St Helens sealed their nine-try triumph, during the closing quarter, as Sia Soliola, Louis McCarthy Scarsbrook and James Roby added their names to the visitors' scoresheet.
