The Hills Bulls had a scare before running away from the Wolves 44-26 in the first round of the Sydney Shield rugby league competition on Saturday.
The Bulls skipped away to a 20-lead in the first before mentally switching off.
That was enough for the Wolves to switch on and take a 26-20 lead in the second half.
Fortunately for the Bulls, front-rowers Steve Bristow and Mick Hawkings switched on and led the way as the Bulls ran away with it 44-26.
The Bulls will be away to Auburn at Lidcombe Oval this Saturday at 1.15pm.
