Bradford coach Mick Potter paid tribute to Michael Platt after the centre's four tries saw the Bulls squeeze past London 29-22 at the Matchroom Stadium.

Platt claimed a brace either side of half time as the visitors stormed back from a nightmare opening to secure victory.

Potter said: "They were not walk-in tries - Michael really had to work hard to score them. He has fought his way back into the team and at the moment he is really making his presence felt.

"It was a really tough match. Before we blinked we were 16-0 down and really up against it.

"I was really pleased with the way we fought back and the grit that we showed. But you cannot start games like we did and expect to get away with it."

Errors

The result leaves the Londoners struggling at the foot of the table, while Bradford continue to look good for a play-off place.

Disappointed Broncos coach Rob Powell said: "We had the game in our hands and we have let them off the hook.

"Bradford should not have been only six points behind at half-time after the way we started. We made too many simple errors in the second half and our completion rate was poor.

"I thought we defended well throughout, but when you make that many errors it will always be tough. They scored four tries going through one man and that will have to be a learning experience for us."
