Bradford boss John Kear hails Underbank Rangers as “moral victors”

Bradford coach John Kear was full of praise for Underbank Rangers following the Bulls’ 22-0 triumph in the Challenge Cup.

The Bulls beat the Rangers 22-0 in the fourth round of the Challenge Cup on Sunday afternoon.

Kear said: “I’m pretty disappointed with how we played today.

“I thought the players were a bit arrogant, which annoyed me. It’s a real salutary lesson.

“We looked toothless and clueless.

“We just looked terrible but I think Underbank also needs their hands shaking. They played really well, I think they completed their first 11 sets. The moral victory is theirs.

“The two plus points for us are that we won so we’re in the next round and we kept them to nil.”

The Challenge Cup fifth round draw takes place on Monday from Hull KR (6:30pm).
