Bradford Bulls romp to win over Whitehaven

Alex Mellor produced a man-of-the-match performance with a hat-trick as the Bradford Bulls opened their Kingstone Press Championship Shield campaign with a comfortable 46-18 win at Whitehaven.

It was the homegrown back-row forward\'s first professional treble as Rohan Smith\'s men ran in nine tries at the Recreation Ground, with Danny Addy, Danny Williams, Matty Blythe, Kris Welham, Kieren Moss and Kurt Haggerty also crossing.

However, the defensive frailties which have undermined the Bulls all season remain and Ugo Perez, Chris Taylor and Dave Allen were allowed to reply with tries for the hosts.
