MARK Dunning has spoken of his delight at a "clinical and disciplined" Bradford Bulls Scholarship victory, where six players made their debuts.

The youth side smashed Widnes Vikings aside in a 50-6 win, in an emphatic performance which saw the Bulls establish a 28-point lead in as many minutes.

Scholarship head coach Dunning admits he was pleased with what he saw on display.

He said: "It was a really clinical, disciplined performance and before the game we set some targets on how they can develop on what they did last time out and I thought they answered them targets really well."

The Bulls started fast and Oliver Scott got the opener of six first-half tries, thanks to a neat grubber kick through from Taylor Mail.

On the back of a repeat set, following a period of pressure on the Widnes line, a slick move down the left edge saw Jaden Barraclough work his way through a gap to touch down.

Marcus Green then brushed off three would-be Viking defenders to touch down by the posts for a third try in a blistering opening quarter.

Mail was instrumental in Bradford’s fourth try on the next set, dummying and racing through the Widnes defence before handing off to David Kamano to go over.

Rafael Dias was next to get points on the board, as the visitors could not keep the second-row starlet out from close range.

Another Mail kick, another try – his punt caused confusion in the Widnes defence before Dias pounced on the loose ball.

He assisted Jayden Myers to touch down for the final score of the first-half.

In the second-half, a number of Under-15 talents were introduced with Dunning setting the youths a specific target.

He said: "All the young kids that came on did well.

"There was six Under-15s on the bench who came on and acquitted themselves really well, so absolutely delighted with that.

"We set a challenge at half time to try keep the ‘0’.

"You have got to challenge young blokes and they have got to accept it and front up to that challenge and I thought they did that."

The youngsters didn't quite shut-out Widnes, but they did add to their side's tally and debutant Myles Lawford was the stand-out performer with a brace.

Immediately after the second period got under way, Nehemiah Mensah raced onto a short ball, 20-metres out from the Widnes line, and brushed off the attention of three defenders before diving over.

Then came Lawford's first significant involvement that would pave the way for a dream debut.

Having seen Kamano held up over the Widnes line, Mail - once again - used his kicking prowess to unlock Widnes.

The high, hanging punt was collected by Lawford in style, before he touched down under the dot.

The Vikings then got on the scoreboard through Joshua Naylor.

But normal service was resumed when Lawford sealed his double, dropping a shoulder and running through the resulting gap in the Widnes defence and stepping past the Vikings’ full-back before converting his own try.

Dunning said: "We spoke about the side before self motto before the game and some of the tries early on was really good skill and really unselfish too – it was a team game, a team effort and a team victory.

"The scary and exciting thing is some of the boys will go on in the Under-18s next year, some will stay in the Under-16s and the youth is in a very good state.

"As a club we need to keep moving forward and if we can continue with nights like tonight it will only benefit the club."
