Kearney stars in Bulls romp
Bradford finish a traumatic week on a high
Bradford again confirmed that all their troubles are off the pitch as they crushed London Broncos 44-12 at Odsal.
Full-back Brett Kearney crosssed for four of his side's eight tries and former London half-back Luke Gale also played a starring role, as the Bulls finished a traumatic week on a high with a third straight win.
Bradford, who lost two training sessions at the height of the crisis in the week, followed up their stunning victory at Wigan with another impressive win to maintain their play-off hopes despite an inevitable points deduction for going into administration.
The Bulls will now be hoping for another positive result before Tuesday's deadline set by administrator Brendan Guilfoyle to find a buyer.
The game went ahead with the help of staff sacked at the start of the week, including head coach Mick Potter and his assistants.
On the pitch it was routine for the Bulls against a Broncos side forced to play without their captain Craig Gower for the first time, after he pulled out through injury in the warm-up.
Bradford dominated from the start and ought to have made more of clean breaks from Kearney and Michael Platt long before prop Manase Manuokafoa took Heath L'Estrange's short pass to crash over for his second try for the club on 11 minutes.
Kearney jinked his way over on 14 minutes and Gale was gifted his first try for the club three minutes later after London winger Kieran Dixon had lost the ball in a tackle 10 metres out from his own line.
Gale, who joined the Bulls from the Broncos at the start of the season, added all three conversions to put his side into an 18-0 lead.
Dixon pulled a try back midway through the first half but twice more illustrated his defensive failings as Bradford increased their lead to 26-4 by half-time.
First he fumbled Gale's kick to allow his opposite number Shaun Ainsough to get second rower Elliott Whitehead over for a try and was then outjumped by Ainscough as he collected Ben Jeffries' kick and put the supporting Platt over.
There was little respite for the Londoners after the break as Gale and Jeffries combined to get Kearney over for his second try within two minutes of the re-start and the Australian full-back took Platt's pass on 57 minutes to complete his hat-trick.
Loose forward Jamie Langley then burst clear to get Kearney over for his fourth and Gale kicked a sixth goal to take his personal haul to 16 points.
The Broncos remain rock-bottom of the table and centre Will Lovell's first Super League try late on will offer scant consolation.
