The Broome Bulls made a late charge to pick up an easy win against the Peninsula Bombers on Saturday night, but may spend some time practising in front of goal before this weekend’s clash.

The reigning premiers did everything right in the first half at Father McMahon Oval — they were strong in the midfield, kept the Bombers to a single goal and dominated possession — but failed to convert any of it to the scoreboard.

The side had kicked 14 behinds before Cameron Worsley finally kicked their first goal 13 minutes into the second quarter.

But the goals started to roll in after the half-time break, with the Bulls kicking five goals in the third quarter, despite missing another six.

The Bombers were kept to just one point in the third. It was business as usual for the Bulls in the final quarter, booting seven goals to just one by the Bombers to bring home a strong 91-point victory.

The loss means the Bombers are one of two sides, along with the Saints, that are yet to pick up a win this season.

They will have their best chance so far when they take on Towns on Saturday night, while the Bulls will host the Bidyadanga Emus in what is expected to be a close encounter.
