Probably the weather wont relent for Tuesday evening. Funny how rock hard grounds in summer never puts games in jeopardy

I was one of those unfortunate enough to turn up at Hunslet. Nothing would have made me check if the game was on or not today, as I believed the conditions would have been perfectly acceptable ?
Air temperatures have been at +4/5 deg since 9:30 this morning with full sun.
True, the nights have been very cold but if the game at Rams went ahead, what's the difference at the South Leeds Stadium, both are high up and open to the elements. ?
Surely the pitch wouldn't be rutted or dangerous, it will be just as hard in July and the clubs must surely need the revenue.
Anyway, C'est la vie.

The difference in the summer is that we can at least water the pitch to soften it and leave the grass slightly longer - it would then be firm but yeilding to a stud and as such much less dangerous!
If we'd played today and lost a couple of players through avoidable injuries the decision would have looked daft.
As Andy says - c'est la vie! It'll get played another day.

I can't verify "the facts", but if a coach thinks the risk to the players is too great, and is given the opportunity to make that call, i will accept that. Regardless of how much i was looking forward to it!
We have said on here so oft how important a good start is. We don't need needless injuries before the season has hardly got underway.

Not surprised by this. Bad conditions will always be a leveller so the weaker team will always want to play.

The Facts, so there was Paul March Steve Ball the Ref Daryl Powell and The King Of Leon on the pitch when DP said he wanted it called off or is that what you were told? just asking like!
