Wakefield Wildcats 10, Bradford Bulls 23

Francis Cummins was left delighted as the Bulls ran out worthy winners in tonight’s crunch clash at Wakefield.

Adrian Purtell opened the scoring with a well-taken try and the Wildcats replied through Peter Fox before Brett Kearney’s score put Bradford 10-4 up at the break.

Luke George marked his debut with a third try to stretch the Bulls’ lead before Ali Lauitiiti replied for the hosts to cut the gap.

Jarrod Sammut then had a try disallowed before the Bulls wrapped up victory when Adam O’Brien darted over from acting half and the outstanding Luke Gale landed a late drop goal.

Oh dear that didn't go the way the RFL would have wanted. Does it mean they will now increase any points deduction.
Great result for Bulls, FC's new loans worked out well, looked like they had been with us quite a while. Rest of team great defence even if helped on occations by Wakefield.
May be Sammit will realise he should have stayed with the Bulls.
