Francis Cummins challenged Bradford to maintain the standards they set in a thumping Super League win over Wakefield.

The Bulls - rebuilt during the close season after last year's brush with liquidation - marked their first game under head coach Cummins with a 40-6 victory.

He said: "We've got to do this all year. To starve Wakefield of the ball was really pleasing. We earned the right to play.

"I was able to enjoy it after the start we made. I'm really pleased for the boys."

Michael Platt's early try set the pattern for a game in which Jarrod Sammut twice crossed, but Cummins was reluctant to single out the scrum-half for praise.

"Jarrod Sammut is an exciting talent but the front rowers allowed him and Brett Kearney to run off the back of their hard work," he said.

"Jamie Foster stepped up again from the friendly against Leeds. He's got skills and he's definitely got a rugby league brain to play at full-back. He reads the game really well and he's quick."

Wakefeld boss Richard Agar said: "I probably didn't see it coming but, if you are not in a physical contest, things can get a bit messy.

"Our contact was nowhere near up to scratch, in fact it was disgraceful. I lay the blame firmly at the door of our forwards."
