Bradford Bulls showcased their dominance once again as they stormed to a fourth consecutive victory, defeating London Broncos with a commanding score of 32-16. The Bulls’ attacking prowess was on full display as they ran in five tries to secure the win.
The match kicked off with the Bulls displaying their intent right from the start, putting pressure on the Broncos and forcing a repeat set. It was Ben Blackmore who shone with a moment of brilliance, executing an acrobatic effort in the corner after a clever dart from dummy half.
Although the Broncos found their footing as the game progressed and created numerous threatening opportunities near Bradford’s line, the home side’s defence remained resolute and held firm against their advances.
Bradford further cemented their early lead when Tom Holmes scored his 10th try of the season following an impressive break by Kieran Gill on the left side. Holmes didn’t stop there and went on to notch up his 11th try for the year, showcasing his agility as he evaded two London defenders with a slick move on the left edge.
As the second half commenced, Dec Patton’s accurate boot added to Bradford’s advantage, stretching their lead to 20 points. The combination of Patton and Gill, which has become a familiar sight for Bulls fans, then came to the fore once again. Patton’s clever kick set up Gill for his 12th try of the campaign, further solidifying his reputation as a prolific scorer.
Despite London managing to register a score through Macani after Whare made a break, it was Gill who stole the spotlight by notching up a significant milestone. In a break down the left flank, David Foggin-Johnston provided the perfect pass to set up Gill for his landmark 100th career try.
The Bulls faced adversity late in the game when Billy Jowitt was forced off the field due to a knee injury, leaving them with 12 players. London Broncos seized the opportunity and capitalised on the numerical advantage, scoring two late tries.
Despite the late surge from the Broncos, the Bulls’ earlier dominance proved insurmountable, allowing them to emerge as deserved winners with a convincing 32-16 victory. Bradford Bulls will undoubtedly be eager to build upon this success and continue their winning streak in the coming matches.
