Francis Cummins enjoyed a dream start as Bradford coach as the new-look Bulls began their Super Leason season with a 40-6 victory over Wakefield.

Debutants Jamie Foster, Matty Blythe and Adam Sidlow all scored tries as the re-building Bulls dominated the West Yorkshire derby throughout.

Foster converted six goals to finish with 16 points while man-of-the-match Jarrod Sammut offset the absence of Luke Gale with two opportunistic tries.

Wildcats won their last seven Super League games of 2012 but sorely missed the injured Tim Smith, while coach Richard Agar will be alarmed at the ease with which the defence was breached.

An eight-man move ended with Bulls winger Michael Platt touching down inside the first 10 minutes before Foster fed Blythe to cross wide out, Sidlow adding a third on 25 minutes.

Five minutes before the break Bradford were over again through Sammut, who held off Richard Mathers in a sprint to the corner.

It was 22-0 at the interval and any hope of a Wakefield revival was snuffed out when Foster was first to a grubber kick from Brett Kearney, before Sammut jinked his way over for his second.

Foster added the extras to make it 34-0 before Wildcats finally got on the scoreboard when skipper Danny Kirmond blocked Sammut's kick and centre Dean Collis picked up and galloped 70m for a try.

Paul Sykes converted but Bulls remained on the attack and it came as no surprise when Kearney added a seventh try nine minutes from time, Foster completing the scoring from the tee.
