Saints smash Bulls

Afp
Tuesday, May 13, 2014

LONDON - St Helens' Australian play-maker Luke Walsh inspired his side to an emphatic 50-0 Super League win over an injury-hit Bradford Bulls yesterday.

The hosts had eight first-team regulars absent, including Australian Brett Kearney and former Parramatta Eels star Manase Manuokafoa, with Saints taking full advantage to run in nine tries.

Jon Wilkin started the rout before Walsh added a second try and Jonny Lomax and Wilkin chipped in further scores before the break.

Tommy Makinson, Adam Swift, Sia Soliola, Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and James Roby also crossed as the Saints moved to within one point of leaders Leeds against a Bradford side, who despite the handicap of a six-point deduction for entering administration, are no longer bottom of the table.

Joe Grima was unable to get his reign as London Broncos head coach off to a winning start, losing out 30-16 to Huddersfield Giants on Saturday as the basement club were beaten once again.

Also on Saturday, Salford and Hull KR played out a 16-16 draw.

Craig Sandercock's Rovers led at the half-way stage after tries from Kris Welham and Kevin Larroyer, with Francis Meli replying for Salford.

The former Auckland Warriors wing was on the score-sheet again after the break following Jake Mullaney's kick for the Red Devils, before Neville Costigan and Martin Gleeson traded tries as the game ended in a draw.

Leeds cemented top spot on Thursday thanks to a 22-14 win over Castleford — their seventh straight Super League victory, while on Friday, Warrington eased to a 42-10 win over Catalan Dragons and Wakefield won 24-18 at Widnes.
