Yeah, Sunday (Wakey), Thursday (Bulls), Monday (Catalans in France) is not the ideal scenario!

The piggy in the middle is all that matters to me old boy!

If this weather keeps up Catalan might be playing both Leeds and Bradford on Easter Monday. I still don't know if they've set off yet after much delay.

Yeah to be fair, your boys are over in France this weekend so also have a bit of travelling to do.

Disappointed tonights match is off, was looking forward to it! Not sure I can make Sunday yet!

I'm assuming they were on the 07:00 flight to Barcelona. That went at 11:15

This game has been postponed again apparently because of conditions around the ground. When did it become a given that grown ups couldn't decide whether to take the risk themselves? How would people in this country cope if they lived in a country with proper snow and ice every year? Ridiculous.

We're glad it's off it's freezing so we would not enjoy it, my wife slipped in ice two weeks ago and broke her wrist.

I think it's great for all concerned, players as well because once the snow is off the pitch that too may ice up.

As you can imagine I don't agree with your post one bit.

How's the weather where you are?

Yes, but the BBC website has Catalans playing against the Broncos in London on Thursday, followed by a home game against Wakefield on the Friday! :wacko:

Even that pales into insignificance, though, when you see that Wakefield are not only playing in Perpignan on the Friday, but at the same time they are playing at Castleford. :wacko:

You've got to hand it to Mr Glover. Not only has he rescued Trinity, he's got them playing two games in two different places SIMULTANEOUSLY! :o

I think there might be some slight mistake. ;)

People were slipping around Langtree Park on Friday night but at least they had the choice of whether to risk a slip or not! They didn't need nannying.

We played Salford in terrible conditions on Friday night, much worse than anything around today. We still have snow on the ground.

The pitch wasn't the reason for postponing; the surrounding area was.

It's the match commissioner who called it off.

I don't know what it's like in St Helens, but over here there's around a foot of snow on the ground and the ice where it's been walked/driven on is the worse I have seen. It is literally like an ice rink. I took my girlfriend home last night and my car stated sliding when I was doing under 10mph. I think the right decision was made Friday, and I think the right decision has been made today. If someone died the club and the RFL would have a lot to answer for.

Sensible decision, presumably based on the facts and an objective assessment of the conditions, rather than on some sort of reactionary instincts as proposed by Saintslass.

I can confirm 30+ less sales for Scotland vs Italy at Workington, after this afternoons test purchase for the Tonga match, £7.50 is extremely reasonable, however a £2.50 'delivery' fee for a walk in purchase is beyond taking the mickey, good luck with that, it's cheaper on the telly.

According to Bradford fans on twitter,it's all part of a huge RFL conspiracy so Leeds are fresh to play the Bulls on Thursday :rolleyes:

That's what it was like around Langtree Park on Friday night. All compressed ice, very slippy, people had to be careful. Crikey, during the winters of 2009 and 2010 did nobody leave their houses? Because those conditions were even worse.

Friday night was lethal and perishing, everywhere. Take a look at some photos of Langtree Park on other forums and you'll see what I mean. There is still a lot of snow around today but in the town centre the council did a big gritting session during the day on Friday on the pavements and the road and so most of the pavements and roads are passable, but only around the town centre. Outlying areas are still lethal.
