Bradford 50-4 Castleford

Bradford's Wayne Godwin
Godwin's try gave the Bulls the perfect start at Odsal


Bradford (22) 50
Tries: Godwin, Evans, Tadulala 3, Sykes, Jeffries, Hape, Nero
Goals: Deacon 6, Harris

Castleford (4) 4
Try: Fletcher

Bradford winger Semi Tadulala went over for a hat-trick as the Bulls ran riot against basement side Castleford.

After Wayne Godwin's early try from dummy-half, Adam Fletcher responded for the Tigers but after that it was one-way traffic as the Bulls dominated.

James Evans, Paul Sykes and Tadulala also added first-half tries.

Ben Jeffries, Shontayne Hape and Chris Nero added to Castleford's misery after the break while Tadulala went over twice and Deacon kicked six goals.


  • Bradford coach Steve McNamara

    "I'm really pleased with them. This game is the really tough one after the Easter period.

    "I'm very pleased with the lads and they should gain a lot of confidence by scoring a lot of points like that.

    "We possibly put four or five chances down over the line, too."

  • Castleford coach Terry Matterson

    "We haven't got a squad big enough to handle Super League at the moment, never mind Easter.

    "We knew it was going to be difficult but I was hoping days like this wouldn't happen."


    Bradford: Halley, Evans, Sykes, Hape, Tadulala, Jeffries, Deacon, Lynch, Godwin, Burgess, Solomona, Nero, Langley.
    Replacements: Kopczak, Finnigan, Feather, Harris.

    Castleford: McGoldrick, Owen, Lupton, Dixon, Wainwright, Dorn, Sherwin, Huby, Henderson, Korkidas, Leafa, Clayton, Westerman.
    Replacements: A. Fletcher, Higgins, Boyle, Massey.

    Referee: B Thaler (Wakefield)
