A brave effort by Harlequins was not enough to hold off Bradford as the Bulls returned to the top of Super League with a win at The Stoop.
The home side were still in the game with ten minutes left, but the Bulls eventually ran out 36-22 winners.
Tries from Purdham and Jon Wells then put Harlequins ahead 16-12, but with neither of those tries were converted, meaning Quins had missed four conversion attempts in all.
Those 8 points could have proved crucial, as it meant Harlequins only held a four point lead, which was soon relinquished when Glenn Morrison crashed over on 52. Paul Sykes restored Quins' lead on 58, this time converted by Purdham to give Quins a 22-18 lead with 20 minutes to go.
