Hull Kingston Rovers gained a strong 18-44 victory tonight against Bradford Bulls at Odsal, with a result that makes in unlikely that the Bulls will be able to avoid relegation.

The  Robins took the lead when Travis Burns went over, selling a dummy, for a try that he converted himself.

The Bulls hit back five minutes later when Elliot Kear scored on the right from a great pass by Lee Gaskell, with Luke Gale converting to level the scores.

Hull KR scored twice in the final five minutes of the first half, however, to take a 12-point lead. First it was Josh Hodgson who scored from dummy-half, and then Kris Welham scored after intercepting an Adrian Purtell offload, with Burns converting both.

They extended their lead to 22 points after ten minutes of the second half, with tries by Craig Hall and Greg Eden, with Burns converting the second.

Adam O’Brien gave the Bulls some hope with a try from dummy-half, but the Robins’ reply came from Adam Walker. Danny Addy scored the Bulls’ final try, but the Robins finished with a flourish, with Hall’s second try before Eden ran the length of the field after Burns fed him from a kick by Addy.

A full report, pictures and analysis will feature in Monday’s edition of Rugby League Express.
