think it was inevitable really with the plummeting temperatures these past few nights.

2009 all over again, roll on the game in midweek sometime more than likely

Slightly bemused by the decision today

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.

Gaz and myself went onto our pitch around 12ish. If we were expecting a game at POR this aft, there is no way the game would have been played on it. I can't imagine the exposed South Leeds pitch being in a much different condition. Our pitch wouldn't have taken a stud and to play it would have been dangerous.
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 know rugby league is not a game for cissies, but i went to watch cas panthers under 16s v lock lane in the national cup today, and those lads deserved medals for playing in those conditions. i'm glad the lions game was called off. we all like our rugby but you have to consider the players. i agree with you Robin.

Heres the facts.Paul March , Steve Ball , the ref and Daryl Powell went out for the Pitch Inspection.It was agreed that if BOTH Coaches wanted to play the ref said he was prepared to go ahead.Marchy said yes, Daryl Powell indicated he wasnt happy therefore the ref had no alternative to call it off.

fair do's. The coaches were at least given the opportunity to call the risk as they saw it at that time.
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.
