Dewsbury Rams 14 v 18 Bradford Bulls
Ryan Hudson and Andy Lynch made their debuts for the Bulls as a young Bradford side held off a late fightback from Dewsbury.

Ben Westwood, Phil Berry and Danny Lima also crossed in a game that saw the return of Lee Briers following his recovery from surgery on his finger in October.
