Rugby league: Injur y scare for Bradford; Bradford 48 Hull 24.

CHALLENGE CUP finalists Bradford will head for Cardiff in confident mood after confirming second place in the Tetley's Super League - but an eighth successive win came at a cost.

The Bulls received a major injury scare just eight days before their Millennium Stadium showdown with table-toppers Leeds when Great Britain prop Stuart Fielden hobbled off midway through the first half.

The 23-year-old Fielden went down after an accidental collision with Hull skipper Jason Smith. But at least Bradford maintained their winning run and gained a timely confidence boost, although it took them an hour to grind down a battling Hull side.
