PREVIEW: Bradford vs Leigh

Bradford Bulls top the Championship table and are unbeaten after three rounds. Assistant coach Chev Walker, said:“It’s really good to have the momentum with us at the moment. We haven’t been as good as we can be, but we’ve been a little bit more professional than we were last year.

“Credit to the boys, they’ve dug deep and been professional with their approach to the games and I think it has paid dividends so far. As a group I think the feeling is good in the camp.

“It is a different test on Sunday. If you ask the players on Monday, I think they’d be able to give a better idea of where their performances are. We’ve got to keep improving and growing each week as a team.”

Leigh Centurions had a real battle against London Broncos last week. They trailed 20-6 going into the final quarter before rattling up 18 points without reply to win the game.

Coach Neil Jukes said: “While we were still a little bit off and had too many bad patches, we had one really good patch where we put together 12 sets out of 13 and only gave away three penalties. When we do that we’re a difficult team (to beat), we’ve just got to do that more often.”

Leigh are still struggling with a long injury list and Jukes said: “We’re still a new team and have got to come through some journeys that will test our resolve. We’ll do it again next week. We’ve just got to keep working hard and stay strong together.”
