Hull KR 16 Bradford Bulls 0
Matt Diskin and Adam Sidlow suffered first-half injuries as the Bulls slipped to a costly defeat at Hull KR this afternoon.
Skipper Diskin had to helped off the field in the 10th minute and prop Sidlow followed him 13 minutes later in similar fashion.
Both injuries looked serious and first-half tries from Omari Caro and Kris Keating put Craig Sandercock’s side 12-0 up at the break.
A try on the hour mark from second-rower Kevin Larroyer finished Bradford off on a day when they defended doggedly and their spirit was not in doubt.

Nice tribute to Chris Park in the @hullkr_online media suite, which is now named in the late broadcaster's honour. http://t.co/aHM9DIpmjM— @rosshtanda 23 March 2014

"@SamuelWood7: Looking forward to putting a shirt on again for the bulls, first of the 2014 season! Cant wait to get out there!!" Good luck!— @KatyEarnshaw 23 March 2014
@JamieLangley13 Forever a Bull Jamie. Don't take it personally but I hope you're on the losing side today. #COYB #bradfordbulls— @milliganwasagod 23 March 2014
Time for the RFL and Administrator to make the decision. This cannot continue for ever. The Bulls needs strengthening to avoid relegation— @MandyKoukash 22 March 2014
@snozzer_gale Good luck lads. We need the win. I'm sure we have the talent to unlock their defence. COYB.— @DoreMj 23 March 2014
