    Championship side Bradford shocked Super League Leeds Rhinos to reach the quarter-finals of the Challenge Cup.

    They led 22-14 at half-time thanks to tries from Dalton Grant, Jake Webster, Sam Hallas and Mikey Wood and defended for their lives after the break.

    The Rhinos, who have Richard Agar in caretaker charge after the sacking of David Furner, almost forced extra-time when Tom Briscoe crossed late on.

    But Liam Sutcliffe's conversion hit the post, and the Bulls held out.

    The Challenge Cup is a knockout rugby league cup competition held annually since 1896, with the exception of 1915–1919 and 1939–1940. It involves amateur, semi-professional and professional clubs.

    The teams from the top tier of rugby league, known as the Super League, enter the Cup in the fifth and sixth rounds, with the final of the prestigious competition held at Wembley Stadium.

    The current holders of the Challenge Cup are Catalan Dragons who defeated Warrington Wolves 20–14 to become the first non-British team to win the competition in its 117-year history.

    Wigan Warriors are the most successful club in the history of the competition, winning the cup a record 19 times.
