Hull KR 32-12 Bradford

Hull Kingston Rovers kept up the pressure on Huddersfield Giants with a 32-12 victory over Bradford Bulls at Craven Park.

The win leaves the Robins fourth in the engage Super League, just a point behind Huddersfield in third.

The Bulls started brightly and led twice in the first half, but the hosts took the lead before the interval and dominated the second period.

Bradford opened the scoring after ten minutes when Terry Newton sent Dave Halley over next to the posts, Paul Deacon adding the two points.

Rovers drew level when the Bulls defence was unable to deal with Michael Dobson’s kick, Scott Murrell latching onto the loose ball to score and Dobson converting.

The visitors went ahead once more when Deacon’s break allowed Michael Worrincy to cross; Deacon left the field with an injury and Paul Sykes tagged on the goal.

The Robins would take a lead into the half-time interval however: first Dobson’s cut-out pass created a try for Liam Colbon before Peter Fox did the honours for Kris Welham, Dobson converting the latter.

Bradford saw a try disallowed after the restart, and 15 minutes into the second period Rovers extended their advantage when Welham touched down a kick to the in-goal area.

The lead was extended with a well-worked try from Fox, and although Dobson missed the conversion a penalty goal all but ended the game as a contest.

Finally, poor Bulls defence allowed Hull KR to reach the thirty-point mark through Daniel Fitzhenry, Dobson’s conversion rounding off a comprehensive victory.
