JAMES Lowes has heaped praise on his Bradford Bulls after watching the Provident Stadium men produce their “best performance of season” yesterday, defeating fellow promotion rivals Sheffield Eagles with ease.
The Bulls boss saw his side storm into an unanswered interval lead, before putting the game to bed following the restart.
Dale Ferguson was named man of the match but was one of a handful Bradford stars who turned on the style over the weekend, the home side romping to a 46-12 success.
“I was very pleased with how we played, I thought we were pretty good,” said Lowes, who is sponsored in memory of Joyce Dobby.
“It was the best 80-minute performance of the season so far, without a doubt.
“You could go through the side, from one to 17, I thought we were far better than them.
“It has taken a while for us to get up to speed but we are certainly getting there.”
Meanwhile, officials have this morning confirmed the rescheduling of the Bulls' Kingstone Press Championship clash with Featherstone Rovers.
Originally due to take place on Sunday May 17, the contest will now get underway from 8.00pm on Wednesday July 1.
This change comes due to the Rovers partaking in Ladbrokes Challenge Cup sixth-round action that weekend.

MAN of the match Dale Ferguson bagged a brace of tries as Bradford Bulls stormed to an emphatic victory over Sheffield Eagles, moving them four points clear of their third-placed opponents.
The Scotland star bagged tries either side of the break and played a key role, James Lowes’ men producing arguably their best performance of the season to ease past Sheffield.
Bradford were 22-unaswered points to the good by half-time and did not look back.
The visitors responded late on, avoiding what looked set to be a nilling, but their efforts counted for little more than consolation.

Robbie Hunter-Paul said: “It is fantastic to have Grosvenor Casinos supporting what looks set to be a tremendous evening of poker – and entertainment.
“In the name of charity, we would love to see the Bradford Bulls family secure tickets and take on their favourite players away from the field!
“As a trustee of the Bradford Bulls Foundation, I am proud to be working with so many fantastic partners and the Forget Me Not Children’s Hospice, who do fantastic work to support children and their families when they need it most.
“With over 100 tickets already secured, I would urge anyone who hasn’t already got a ticket to hurry and buy now. This will be an evening to remember!”
Charlotte Scoular, Grosvenor Casino’s events and sales manager, added: “It is always a pleasure to work with any business that has the City of Bradford and its community at its heart.
“Grosvenor Casino Bradford is keen to support local projects and charity fundraisers in and around Bradford and have really enjoyed working with the Bradford Bulls on the fantastic challenge they have set with Robbie’s Big 10.
“Forget me not is working equally as hard in their fundraising efforts around the Kirklees district and across the region and we are especially proud to be affiliated with such a worthwhile organisation.
“Grosvenor Casino is very excited to be host for the Charity Tournament and I know that our members are waiting in anticipation for the Bulls to make their appearance at the poker tables.”
