Bradford leapfrog Batley after dramatic Odsal win

Bradford Bulls claimed their third win in eight days to leapfrog Batley Bulldogs into third place in the Kingstone Press Championship.

Kurt Haggerty\'s late drop goal secured a dramatic 17-16 win over the Bulldogs which ended their opponents\' five-match winning run.

Two early tries from James Clare gave the Bulls an 8-0 lead but John Kear\'s men turned around 10-8 up at the break after tries from Cain Southernwood and Chris Ulugia, while Pat Walker\'s penalty extended their advantage to 12-8.

Bradford regained the lead through Jay Pitts\' try, which was converted by Haggerty, who also kicked a penalty to make it 16-12 before Southernwood grabbed his second to set up a tense finish.
