Ninth-placed Bradford Bull welcomed Featherstone Rovers to their narrow Odsall pitch, off the back of two narrow defeats, including a loss to Halifax Panthers, who played 79 minutes of the match with 12 men.
The visitors arrived unbeaten, amidst a flurry of speculation around the possible signing of former Wigan full back/centre Zak Hardaker, who the Cherry and Whites had released "to persue career options" in his home territory of West Yorkshire.
Of immediate interest, though, was the return of winter signing Jesse Sene-Lefao following an injury in the opening game of the season.
At stake were two vital league points - as well as the Peter Fox memorial trophy.

The Betfred Championships game of the day was without doubt the clash at Odsal between third placed Bradford Bulls and second placed Featherstone Rovers who were looking to maintain their one hundred percent record and keep up the pressure on a Toulouse Olympique side who are top of the table courtesy of a superior points difference.
The home side had Sam Hallas back in their line-up but were without Aaron Murphy and Thomas Doyle who both had minor injuries keeping them out of the game while Rovers welcomed back Kris Welham but were without the services of Craig Kopczak who was rested.
Despite home advantage the Bulls were the underdogs with the bookies, Featherstone clear favourites to record their thirteenth win of the season with Bradford getting a twelve-point start on the coupon.

A late Adam Sidlow try snatched a draw for Bradford against the old enemy in a pulsating contest at Headingley Stadium....Read on...
As the clock ticked down, and having already defended continuous sets of six on their own try line, Jamie Peacock was sent to the Sin Bin for a professional foul, leaving the Rhinos to defend relentless Bradford pressure with a man down.
It proved a bridge too far for the tiring Leeds’ defenders as Adam Sidlow burst onto L’Eastrange’s short ball to crash over in front of the delirious travelling army of Bradford fans that were camped on the western terrace.
