The club has this morning spoken with the Match Commissioner for Sunday’s game against Keighley Cougars.

Because the visiting team is relatively local and to meet RFL regulations the earliest time to make a decision on whether or not the game can go ahead is Sunday morning. There will be a pitch and ground inspection at 10.00am on Sunday and the result of this will be posted on the web site and message board as soon as possible after the inspection has taken place.

Unfortunately the latest forecast from the Met Office for Friday night isn’t promising. As well as the affecting pitch conditions this is also likely to affect the car parks, terracing, pathways, entrances etc all of which have to be considered safe before any game can take place and this isn’t the case at the moment.

Please check again on Sunday morning for a further update.

Might not be a bad thing if off
gives us time off before the busy easter program

if its played will be heavy and a mud bath
so any chance of fast flowing rugby to entertain us will be restricted...and after last week.

its a close call between the match....and watching a old tin of paint in my shed that could be quite entertaining watch dry ;)

Coolie you old cynic, if it wasn't for the snow you could always sit in the garden and watch the grass grow!

Looking at the weather at the moment,they will be no chance of the game going on.Looks like a new date will be needed later in the season.

Think it will be good news if it's off. Keighley on a high, us on a low and a few key men out. As BSJ suggested earlier I think we will be better on drier pitches. Let's play em later on. You have the added issue of the gate. Even if we get it on on Sunday the gate would be seriously depressed. There seems to be at least 15 free Sunday's in May / June. Let's play then.

Yep called off.

15 free sundays in two months, I think you should take your calendar back and demand a refund.

You won't see the mud for a while coolie and there will be plenty more when the snow melts. 3 feet in places they say, could make a few bob for AR putting on skiing lessons towards Owl lane, never overlook an opportunity I say!
