Bradford Bulls 36-24 Warrington Wolves

Bradford proved too strong for a Lee Briers' inspired Warrington despite a brave first half fight from the visitors, eventually pulling away to win 36-24.

Warrington, on a worrying run of form, are starting to welcome back players from injury, with Adrian Morley being the latest star to return.

And they could have been forgiven for falling away after the worst possible start allowed Paul Deacon to put the Bulls in front. Brent Grose hit back for the Wolves, but tries from Lesley Vainikolo and Michael Platt saw Bradford go 18-4 up.

But Warrington were back on level terms by half time, Vinnie Anderson's interception try and a score for Lee Briers tying things up at 18 apiece.

After the break though it was one way traffic, three tries in the space of 8 second half minutes guiding the Bulls home. Platt grabbed his second with fruther tries fro Jamie Langley and James Evans. Lee Briers grabbed a late consolation for the Wolves to make the scoreline seem a little more respectable.

It puts the Bulls level on points with Leeds at the top, but leaves Warrington in a disastrous 10th place position, just 3 points ahead of bottom placed Salford, whom they face this coming weekend at the Millennium Stadium.
