Jarrod Sammut scored a brace of tries as Bradford defeated Rochdale Hornets

Both players crossed twice and had a hand in most of the Bulls' 12 tries as they progressed to the last 16 of the competition. Young back rower Elliot Whitehead also grabbed a second-half hat-trick in accomplished display from the Super League side

Australian Sammut finished with 26 points and played most of the game at fullback after replacing an injured Jamie Foster, who scored two conversions - the only concern on a largely comfortable afternoon for Bradford coach Francis Cummins.

Sam Wood, Jamie Langley, Chev Walker, John Bateman and Michael Platt also crossed over for the Bulls, while Championship One side scored the tries through Dave Sutton and John Cookson, with Paul Crook adding a goal.
