Bradford Bulls heavily beaten as Gale joins casualty list
Bulls 16 Wigan 54 Luke Gale became the latest player to join the Bulls' casualty list after being helped off the field after just 10 minutes of today's thumping defeat to Wigan.
The England Knights scrum-half sustained ankle ligament damage and was replaced by Heath L'Estrange before Bradford went on to ship four first-half scores and another six after the break.
Josh Charnley, Pat Richards and Gareth Hock all touched down to put the Warriors 16-0 up, but the Bulls hit back through Jason Crookes and a delightful long-range effort from Jarrod Sammut.
Yet Wigan claimed another try through Chris Tuson just before the break and then ran amok in the second half as Mick Potter's were seriously outclassed.
Darrell Goulding (2), Tuson, Liam Farrell (2) and Charnley all went over to further expose the Bulls' defensive frailties.
Brett Kearney hit back for Bradford with a close-range score in the 70th minute, which Sammut converted, but the game was long since over as a contest.
