Bradford Bulls 18, Huddersfield Giants 66
The Bulls slipped to a thumping home defeat at the hands of Huddersfield at the Provident Stadium this afternoon.
Scott Grix opened the scoring before Adam Henry replied for Bradford but the Giants ran amok during the rest of the first half.
They struck again through Joe Wardle, Michael Lawrence, Grix, Luke Robinson and Jason Chan.
That made it 32-6 at the break before Henry scored his second two minutes after the restart.
Yet the Giants upped the tempo once more to score through Wardle, Ukuma Ta’ia (2), Jermaine McGillvary (2) and Brett Ferres.
The Bulls grabbed a consolation through Adam O’Brien but their lack of forward power was brutally exposed with Manase Manuokafoa their only recognised prop.
