BRADFORD Bulls Women defeated Wakefield Trinity 46-6 to send retiring Danielle Bose out in style, as she scored a stunning hat-trick to call time on an 18-year long professional career.

After both sides exchanged sets early on in this wooden spoon final day clash in the Women's Super League Shield at Odsal, Bradford found the breakthrough, as Sarah Dunn barged over.

Kacy Haley grabbed a second for the Bulls, before influential half Mille Taylor then scored off the back of some good play.

Linda McLean soon touched down for her first of the night, as Shaun Flynn's side began to run away with it.

Then the moment came, as Bose raced away and slid over to score her first of the night.

Cara Cookland spun her way over from close range to give Bradford a commanding lead at the break.

After the interval, the scoring continued as McLean grabbed her second, and Bose went over for a quickfire double, wrapping up a superb hat-trick to sign off in style.

Haley added her second late on, with Wakefield scoring a consolation with minutes remaining.

They were awarded a late penalty, and burrowed their way over, to at least ensure they troubled the scoreboard.

It was Flynn's first win as Bulls Women head coach, having taken over from Mark Seal ahead of the end-of-season Super League Shield.

Bradford had lost matches to Huddersfield Giants, Warrington Wolves and Featherstone Rovers under Flynn, meaning they had to beat Wakefield last night to avoid finishing bottom of the Shield standings.

Featherstone came top of the final Shield standings, after beating Warrington 34-18 in their last game.
