BRADFORD Bulls women claimed their third victory on the trot as they won 38-8 at York City Knights.

After a quiet first half, they upped the ante in the second period to claim their fourth win of the campaign which leaves them fifth in the Super League table, two points off Castleford immediately above them but with the Tigers having played two games less.

Savannah Andrade put the first points on the board for Bulls, with Leah Jones converting, but York fought back with a try of their own through Ashleigh Hyde, although they failed to add the extras.

Bradford extended their lead through Heather McDonald to give them a two-score lead going into the sheds.

Jess Courtman got the ball rolling for a destructive second period, claiming the first of her two tries.

Despite having their backs against the wall and being starved of possession, the Knights claimed another try.

England international Courtman broke the whitewash for her second try as the floodgates opened.

Reagan Walker and Paige Costello both found their way over the line before speedster Jones latched onto the end of Kirsty Moroney’s chip over the top for the final score.

Assistant coach Paul Carlos, who was in charge for the day, said: “It was a scrappy performance from a Bradford team containing many changes against a very much improved York City Knights side.

“Our forwards worked hard and there were some good individual displays. Another victory keeps the winning momentum going into the last three rounds of the season.”

Bulls take on Featherstone Rovers in the 11th round of the Women’s Super League, with the date and venue to be confirmed.
