Mat Rogers equalled a club record for Cronulla with a hat-trick of tries and seven goals in the Australian side's 30-10 victory at Bradford Bulls last night.

Bradford, who have now lost all three home games, struck first when hooker James Lowes put Paul Loughlin over for a third-minute try.

But without the inspiration of injured skipper Robbie Paul, they lacked the creativity to break down a smart Cronulla defence until the last minute when Sonny Nickle forced his way over after the Sharks had been reduced to 12 men following the sin-binning of forward Nick Graham for dissent.
