Result: Hull Kingston Rovers breeze past coachless Bradford Bulls

Bradford Bulls lose their first match since the sacking of Francis Cummins as Hull Kingston Rovers run in eight tries in a convincing 44-18 victory at the Provident Stadium.

Hull Kingston Rovers ran in eight tries to pile the misery on coachless Bradford Bulls with a 44-18 Super League victory at the Provident Stadium this evening.

Bulls parted company with Francis Cummins earlier this week, and the new man in charge will have the task of lifting a side that has now lost six out of seven games.

Greg Eden and Craig Hall each crossed twice for Hull, but it was Travis Burns who opened the scoring on 15 minutes with a converted try, before Bradford levelled through Elliot Kear's score.

Josh Hodgson and Kris Welham both touched down before the break as Rovers established a comfortable half-time lead which was extended when Hall recorded his first of the evening on 41 minutes.

Hull's quick start to the second period continued when Eden crossed on 52, with Burns adding his fourth successful kick out of five, but the Bulls did at least show some spirit in the last 20 minutes.

Scores were exchanged, with Adam O'Brien and Danny Addy going over for Bradford and Adam Walker and Hall replying for Hull, who had the last laugh when Eden touched down for his second try a minute from time.

Bradford remain 11th in the table, while Rovers climb above local rivals Hull FC into ninth.
