Georgia Roche hit back to give some hope for Rovers, only for Charlotte Booth to stretch the lead to 16-6 at the interval.

Bulls piled on the pressure in the second half and racked up the points thanks to Claire Garner, Amy Hardcastle, Charlene Henegan and Haylie Hields all going over the line.

Garner also impressed with her boot as she kicked fours goals for the Bulls.

Moroney said: “It’s sloppy conditions so we didn’t play how we’ve been playing all season but we still got the win.

“We set out to win some silverware but we didn’t think in our wildest dreams we would go unbeaten.”
