Bradford Bulls 10, Warrington Wolves 46
The Bulls were subjected to a thumping defeat in today’s Tetley’s Challenge Cup quarter-final at the hands of Warrington.
Richie Myler and Joel Monaghan both scored twice as Tony Smith’s side showed their class to avenge the Super League defeat they suffered here five weeks ago.
Myler opened the scoring but Elliot Kear soon replied for Bradford with a well-taken effort in the right corner.
Yet Warrington began to move through the gears and scored through former Bulls youngster Ryan Atkins and Matty Russell to lead 18-4 at the break.
Luke George’s long-range score, converted by Luke Gale, in the 46th minute cut Warrrington’s lead to eight points.
But the visitors were not about to relinquish their lead and a controversial call from referee Phil Bentham led to Gene Ormsby going over in the right corner.
Joel Monaghan then scored twice and Myler completed his brace before Ben Currie added an eighth try for Warrington late on while Chris Bridge kicked seven goals.
Bridge's conversion attempt hit the post...
73 mins... TRY for Ben Currie from Bridge's pass...
70 mins... TRY for Joel Monaghan from Stefan Ratchford's pass...
Bridge converts to make it 36-10... 15 minutes remaining...
64 mins.. TRY for Joel Monaghan in the right corner from Chris Bridge's pass... great finish despite the attentions of Luke George... now 34-10 with kick to come...
62 mins... TRY for Myler who goes over from dummy half... now 30-10 with less than 20 minutes remaining...
56 mins... Bridge kicks forward... Purtell spills the ball... it is grounded by Simon Grix but no try is awarded...
Chris Bridge sent him over in the right corner...
51 mins.. TRY for Gene Ormsby in the right corner...
46 mins... TRY for Luke George who races 70 metres to score after collecting a wayward pass from Chris Bridge....
45 mins... Gale's long pass flies straight into the arms of Gene Ormsby... good opportunity wasted... still 18-4...
Gale converts to make it 18-10...
Warrington in control here after tries from Myler, Atkins and Russell... Kear's try at least means Bulls are still in the game...
Big hit by Luke Gale on Ben Currie!!
Gale is fine to continue and the Bulls have a penalty...
Roy Asotasi catches Luke Gale late....
It earns them a drop-out anyway as Rhys Evans touched the ball...
34 mins... Gale's flighted kick to Kear in the right corner is overcooked... a good idea nonetheless...
Ben Evans and Roy Asotasi on for Ben Harrison and Anthony England... still 18-4...
Bulls forced to drop out... still 18-4...
29 mins... Adam O'Brien replaces Matt Diskin...
Referee Phil Bentham did not put the incident on report but gave Warrington a penalty...
27 mins... Jay Pitts with what looks like a spear-type tackle on Anthony England...
Jamal Fakir on for Manase Manauokafoa...
25 mins... TRY for Wire full-back Matty Russell who takes Michael Monaghan's pass to score under the posts despite Adam Sidlow's attempted tackle... Bridge makes it 18-4...
Chris Bridge adds the extras to make it 4-12...
21 mins... TRY for former Bulls player Ryan Atkins, who takes Richie Myler's pass to dive over the line from close range...
Bulls concede a drop-out straight from the restart after a mix-up between Lee Gaskell and Adam Sidlow...
The try came after Matt Diskin was denied from close range and Luke Gale supplied Adrian Purtell who sent Kear over in the corner... fine finish past two Wire defenders... alas Gale cannot convert so it's 6-4...
19 mins... TRY for Elliot Kear who finishes well in the right corner from a neat pass by Adrian Purtell...!!
My view this lovely afternoon!! 🏉👌 #teamsowhat #teambull http://t.co/XsOVrgbq6S— @Jarrod_Sammut 08 June 2014
Chev Walker is replaced by Adam Sidlow...
Warrington now going in search of a second try...
The try came straight from a penalty which James Donaldson who was punished for interference at the play-the-ball... Chris Bridge converts to make it 6-0...
15 mins.. TRY for Richie Myler who burrows over from close range after collecting Michael Monaghan's pass...
Rhys Evans collects a high kick from Richie Myler but wastefully kicks the ball to Lee Gaskell...
Neat pass from Diskin almost sends Danny Addy breaking clear...
11 mins... Excellent aggressive line speed in defence by the Bulls...
Promising break by Warrington put paid to by Stefan Ratchford's knock-on...
Balanced opening so far with no real chances for either side due to several handling errors...
Warrington work the ball across the face of the Bulls defence through Michael Monaghan, Richie Myler and Chris Bridge before Ben Harrison loses the ball... still scoreless with seven minutes played...
High kick well fielded by Lee Gaskell but penalty to Warrington after Myler taken out late...
Good defence from the Bulls to keep Warrington at bay...
Ratchford then kept out moments later...
Michael Monaghan almost barrels over....
Early penalty to Warrington...
We are underway at a sun-kissed Provident Stadium... Bulls attacking Rooley Lane End first half...
Two changes for the Bulls with Antonio Kaufusi (cup-tied) and Dale Ferguson (carrying a knock) missing and Adam O'Brien and Adam Henry returning...
