Bulls 18 Salford 38

The Bulls' recent impressive form was emphatically ended as Salford City Reds romped to victory at a sun-drenched Odsal.

Mick Potter's men had won three of their four previous outings but a first-half horror show saw them blown away by a vibrant Reds outfit.

The visitors led through Josh Veivers' early try before Brett Kearney's touchdown, converted by Jarrod Sammut, put Bradford ahead for the only time in the game.

Salford moved through the gears in devastating fashion, scoring through Joel Moon, Luke Patten and Moon again before Ashley Gibson and Matty Ashurst went over to put the Reds into a 30-6 interval lead.

The Bulls improved after the break and hit back through Elliott Whitehead and Bryn Hargreaves but Salford claimed a seventh try through Gareth Owen and Holdsworth landed two late penalties.
