Betfred League One: Bradford Bulls 50 North Wales Crusaders 12

APART from a spell in the second half when they conceded two tries, Betfred League One leaders Bradford Bulls gave a dominant display in despatching visitors North Wales Crusaders.

First-half tries for the hosts came from centre Lee Smith (2), full back Brandon Pickersgill, winger Ethan Ryan and scrum half Dane Chisholm, who added four goals.

Pickersgill's try was the pick of the bunch as he took the ball under pressure after a sublime Chisholm break and still had plenty of work to do to make the line from about 40 metres out.

The second half was quieter but the Bulls still added tries by man-of-the-match Matty Garside (2) and Ryan, with Chisholm adding three goals.

Tries for the Crusaders came from winger Dale Bloomfield and second-row forward Simon Atherton, with loose forward Kenny Baker adding both goals.
