BRADFORD BULLS Under-16s fell to a 20-10 defeat at the hands of Hull Kingston Rovers this afternoon.
Richard Tate’s men led by six points at the interval but were kept scoreless in the second half by a Rovers team, which notched up 16-unaswered points after the break.
Jack Lund and Lewis Ainley (pictured above) bagged tries for the hosting Bulls, who gave a strong account of themselves at The Provident Stadium, with Aiden Ineson landing a solitary conversion.
But the visiting Robins stole victory late on as Harvey Gotts, Max Riseham and Chris Brown added to Hary Cragg’s first-half effort.
Gotts and Riseham landed one goal apiece, finalising the Hull tally.
