Bradford Bulls booked their place in the Challenge Cup quarter-finals at the expense of Yorkshire rivals Leeds Rhinos.
The contest at the Odsal Stadium was the first competitive meeting between the two teams since the Bulls, who are sixth in the Championship this season, dropped out of the Betfred Super League back in 2014.
For Leeds, this was their first game under caretaker manager Richard Agar after David Furner was sacked following the 28-16 Super League loss to Salford Red Devils.
It was an entertaining match as the two sides went blow-for-blow but it was Bradford who managed to squeeze into the quarter-finals with a narrow 24-22 victory.
Dalton Grant, Mikey Wood, Sam Hallas and Jake Webster all crossed the white line for the hosts, while Rowan Milnes slotted over two conversions and two penalties.
Tui Lolohea, Callum McLelland, Harry Newman and Tom Briscoe scored one try each for the Rhinos but Liam Sutcliffe, who kicked two penalties and one conversion, missed a crucial kick in the final five minutes of the game which would have tied the scores.
The Bulls were able to hold on for the victory and they have joined Halifax, Wakefield, Hull FC, Catalans Dragons and Hull Kingston Rovers in the last-eight stage of the tournament.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
