Coach Peter Gentle had demanded a win from the Black and Whites but admitted he had not expected the manner of the victory.
“We owed a lot of people a performance like that,” he said.
“We came here with a semi-final mentality and we knew it would be intense but I never dreamt there would be a scoreline like that.
“We were desperate for a home semi and the result puts us a long way towards that.
“We’ve had lots ups and down, but we've held solid. It’s now about getting that consistency into our game.”
In-form Bradford had taken an early lead when Jason Crookes touched down in the corner - to the delight of new owner Omar Khan.
But Hull responded with tries from Westerman and Foster after Bulls stand-off Ben Jeffries was controversially sin-binned.
Three more tries before half-time saw the floodgates open and Hull ruthlessly ruined the party for Bradford fans celebrating the club's takeover at their final home game of the season.
