JOHN Kear reckons the Bulls are learning fast after making it back-to-back Championship wins.

They shut out Sheffield 28-0 in filthy conditions at Dewsbury to earn a glowing review from the coach.

Brad Gallagher scored his first two senior tries to go with second-half efforts from Brandon Pickersgill, Jordan Lilley and Matty Dawson-Jones.

Kear said: “I’m really pleased with what we dished up for 80 minutes. I think we’ve learned a lot of lessons from earlier in the season.

“I think we’re playing the pitch better, despite the really heavy conditions.

“Last week we got a commanding lead against Oldham then let the opposition back in through our errors and ill-discipline with the ball and with penalties.

“We’ve learned from that and I thought we were very good in all that we did.

“The stat I’m really proud about is that in the last six halves of rugby league we’ve played, we’ve kept the opposition ‘nilled’ in five of them.

“Everybody knew their role and completed their role. It was a good team performance.”

The Bulls were forced into a late reshuffle when winger Greg Johnson pulled his quad in the warm-up.

“He was feeling it in the heavy conditions and there was no way he could start the game,” added Kear.

“The lads adapted really well and George Flanagan deserves a pat on the back. He wasn’t playing until 10 minutes before kick-off.

“He contributed greatly in the changing room and on the field of play.

“It just shows we dealt with that adversity. It didn’t look disjointed at all and that’s credit to the players.”

Rowan Milnes had a hand in four of the Bulls tries and the kicking from his half-back pairing with Jordan Lilley kept Sheffield under pressure throughout the game.

Kear said: “It was tremendous but that’s progressing week on week.

“Last week we probably had a six-out-of-ten kicking game – against Underbank we had a stinking one.

“Well, we’ve had a real quality kicking game this time and that shows they are developing as individuals and as a partnership.”

But there was a scare with Liam Kirk after the forward had to go off late on after a bang of heads.

Kirk said he felt fine but Kear insists the Bulls will take expert advice.

“It’s the second time he’s had concussion and been brought off for a head injury assessment. He’ll have to see a specialist now.

“As soon as he’s symptom-free, we’ll have him booked in so they can have a really good look at him.”
