League 1 round-up: Bradford and Doncaster remain unbeaten, Whitehaven history maker, Bridge in form

There were several close games in round four of League 1.

Wales international Dalton Grant scored a hat-trick to help Bradford Bulls remain unbeaten as they beat Hunslet 32-12, who were flying high, at the Provident Stadium on Sunday.

Back-rower Danny Bridge scored two tries for Oldham as they thrashed North Wales Crusaders 30-2 on Sunday afternoon. It has been a good start to the season for the Roughyeds.

History was made at the Recreation Ground. Jake Bradley became the youngest ever player to represent Whitehaven, with the winger being just 16-years-old. And to top his first-grade debut off, he scored on the hour mark as they eased past Hemel Stags 30-6.

York City Knights are going well on and off the field at the minute. They put in a hard-working display to beat rivals Keighley Cougars 26-12 at Bootham Crescent in front of a crowd of 1,481. Former Super League forward Graeme Horne was a standout for York.

Doncaster kept up their 100% win record in 2018 at Kingston Park, but they were made to tough it out against Newcastle Thunder. The North East side scored late on to make it a nervy finish but the Dons managed to hang on for the two points, clinching a 22-20 win.

Jamie Doran, who played two games for Wigan in 2014, put in a man of the match performance to help Workington Town grind out a 42-26 win over London Skolars in the capital.

West Wales Raiders were scheduled to face Coventry Bears, but the latter had a rearranged Challenge Cup fourth round tie to play so the league game didn’t go ahead.

Coventry beat amateur side Pilkington Recs 31-20 at home to seal a trip to Super League side Widnes Vikings in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fifth round.

Bradford and Doncaster are at the top of the Betfred League 1 table, being the only teams to have won all of their games so far. West Wales and Hemel are at the bottom with zero points.
