A difficult loss for the Hawks as an impressive Bradford continues their strong start to the season.
The first half of the game was a pretty one-sided affair with the bulls having a huge amount of possession scoring 3 within the first 15 minutes. The bulls pressure throughout the first half meant they left the field for the break with a healthy 34-0 lead.
The second half started much more of a competition the Hawks looking much stronger, Duckworth looked to have scored only to be ruled out, the Bulls countered on the Disappointment but the Hawks didn’t give up, Luke Briscoe scoring in the 63rd.
Bradford didn’t take their foot off the gas though scoring 3 more to take the score to 56-6
Hunslet Coach Barry Eaton spoke following the game on the teams much better showing in the second half.
“Second half I thought mentally, we showed up well to turn that around…. We made some line breaks, could have had a couple of scores, so yeah really positive stuff to take out of that second half”
