Leigh Maintain Play-Off Hopes with Big Bulls Win





The Bradford Bulls travelled to the Leigh Sports Village to take in a Centurions side seeking to capitalise on Toulouse's shock defeat at the hands of Swinton yesterday and close the gap on second spot to just two points. The Bulls also had it all to play for and knew that a win would get them level on league points with their opponents, but with a chasm between their points differences it would require a massive victory to take their place on the ladder.

John Kear had Crossley and Garside back in his side with Farrell, Webster and Roche missing out. John Duffy’s Leigh were looking for their third consecutive win and a seventh victory in their last eight as one of the form sides in the division.

The scene was set for a belter of a game.

Keep building a team round the players we got and we won’t need to add many to make a challenge next season. The team spirit and bond at the moment is good everyone playing for each over we did not have that in super league we had a team of names and they was not proven at that. I like the way we going about things at the moment

Strange to think we scored 50, despite conceding a ton of penalties and two sin binnings in the first 60 mins of the game. During that spell, Bradford only ever got into our half off the back of a penalty, luckily we defended our line the majority of the time, and Bradford kept conceding penalties themselves to allow us to edge further away from them.

Once Andy Thornley scored, it seemed to calm them down and the last 20 was just utter dominance.

If we could defend in the middle of the pitch the way we defend (sometimes with 12 men) our goal line we'd be quite a dominant force.

Still, you can feel everything is slowly clicking into place.
