Bradford Bulls succumb to shock Championship defeat

Bradford Bulls have been defeated by Sheffield Eagles at Odsal in a tough Championship encounter.

The Eagles eventually ran out 28-14 winners with a late Izaak Farrell penalty adding the gloss on a superb victory for Mark Aston’s men.

Bradford will fancy their chances of getting in the Championship play-offs in 2022 with John Kear’s men possessing the likes of Dec Patton and Rhys Evans.

But, they will have to buck up their ideas following a poor result at home as Sheffield turned up the heat with Anthony Thackeray, Vila Halafihi and Ross Oates among the try-scorers.

In other scores, Halifax Panthers kept London Broncos scoreless at The Shay 28-0, as Batley Bullogs overcame Newcastle Thunder 32-14.

Barrow Raiders won the Cumbrian derby 18-4, Widnes Vikings thrashed Workington Town 68-18 and York City Knights kept Dewsbury Rams tryless to put in a 30-2 victory.

Featherstone Rovers and Leigh Centurions will go head-to-head at the Millennium Stadium tomorrow night in what is one of the most anticipated Championship fixtures in recent seasons.
