Bradford Bulldogs had a mixed start to their 2008 campaign.

Aarron Dad scored the team’s only goal in a 7-1 loss at Manchester on Saturday night but the Bulldogs made amends 24 hours later with a thumping 10-1 home win against Lancashire Raptors.

The Bulldogs were two goals up inside the first six minutes through Josh Stockton and Matt Viney. Two further goals from Michael Fletcher and Dad gave them a 4-0 lead at the end of the period.

Viney, Jordan Ashington and Andy Brown extended their lead before the end of the second period and further goals by Ashington, Viney and Dad put the seal on a great win.

The Bulldogs travel to Grimsby this Saturday.
