Halifax finished off the Qualifiers with victory at Bradford, whose Super League place will be at stake in next Saturday's 'Million Pound Game'.

Bulls will face Wakefield in that crucial play-off after leaking 10 tries against Championship opposition.

Richard Marshall's visitors trailed the Bulls 18-16 at half-time, but ran in seven unanswered tries after the break.

Steve Tyrer scored a hat-trick and kicked six goals and not even the sin-binning of Ryan Maneely could halt Fax.

Tommy Saxton and Ben Johnson scored two tries apiece, while Dane Manning, Adam Tangata and Ben Heaton also crossed.

Ryan Shaw's brace and Matt Ryan's try were in vain for James Lowes' Bulls.
