Bradford signed off their season in style, thrashing an understrength Huddersfield 58-6 at the Providence Stadium.

Jarrod Sammut notched four tries in the final round of the regular season for the second successive year as the Bulls registered a half-century in Super League for the first time in 2013.

Keith Lulia ended his time with the Bulls with the first hat-trick of his career and Jamie Foster added a try to his nine conversions to amass 22 points.

Huddersfield did manage a try through Jake Connor but the winners of the League Leaders Shield were understandably second best considering the vast majority of their squad were not risked ahead of next Thursday's play-off clash with Wigan.

Impressive

Paul Anderson's young Giants included four debutants and they started impressively enough, forcing repeat sets in the opening minutes.

But from the moment Sammut scored a length-of-the-field effort, catching a kick on the full near his own line and then proceeded to gallop away to the other end, the Bulls were simply too strong.

Wests Tigers-bound Lulia twice went over on the left wing before Danny Addy - an ever-present in league and cup action for Bradford- burst through some tired Huddersfield tackling on the half-hour mark.

Squeeze in

Foster was successful with his first four attempts at the posts but failed to stretch his perfect run after he had touched down himself, the former St Helens winger tip-toeing down the left touchline to squeeze in at the corner.

Already 28-0 ahead at the break, it took Sammut less than 60 seconds after the re-start to put further points on the scoreboard, though both he and Bradford had to wait until the hour mark to add to their tally.

Before then the Giants made sure they wouldn't be shut out with an individual effort from Connor that Jack Miller - son of outgoing Doncaster coach Tony - converted.

It was, though, only a brief moment of success.

Sammut completed his treble and didn't have too long to wait for a fourth, Foster setting up his colleague with a grubber kick back on the inside.

The excellent Elliot Kear got a try his display deserved on the right flank, taking the total past 50 points in the process, and centre Lulia dived over for his third just before the final hooter sounded.

It was a fine end to an otherwise disappointing season for the Bulls, who miss out on the play-offs for a fifth year in a row. The Giants, in contrast, have their sights set now on a first ever Grand Final appearance.
