Bradford Bulls 44, London Broncos 12
Brett Kearney claimed a stunning four-try haul as the Bulls powered to victory over London Broncos ahead of this week's D-day.
The crisis-torn club must find a buyer by Tuesday to avert the looming threat of liquidation and the manner in which they put London to the sword cannot have failed to impress any potential buyers
watching from the stands.
Manase Manuokafoa, Kearney and former London scrum half Luke Gale all scored in quick succession to put the Bulls 18-0 up and in total control after 18 minutes.
The Broncos replied through winger Kieran Dixon but further scores from Elliott Whitehead and Michael
Platt sent Mick Potter's men in at the break with a commanding 26-4 lead.
Two minutes after the restart, Kearney grabbed his second in typically clinical fashion as some neat handling between Gale and Ben Jeffries saw him take a
pass from the latter and diving over from close range.
Gale added his fourth goal from six attempts before the Broncos hit back through Dixon's second try in the 51st minute, yet Kearney soon completed his treble with another smart close-range finish.
And he was left to claim centre stage again in the 76th minute, supporting a break from Jamie Langley to power under the posts and Gale added his sixth
conversion before Will Lovell struck a late consolation for London.
