I would think both clubs will want it played sooner rather than later because we play Haven and they play Warrington next weekend, so they will look for an extra days recovery for the players.    Tuesday seems to be the day to play it.


I remember when .............................

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimension, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave Hadfield - Independent 25th August 1996.

Agreed . Free weekends for two clubs together could be a couple of months or more away , and a midweek game before another
hugely important league game isn't good , as we see what happens on the Good Friday / Easter Monday turn around .

Surely Tuesday is the only option if its to be played midweek. Quick turn arounds aren't good. It cost sheffield big style over the Easter period.

And several others in both leagues . Those Easter Monday fixtures are an anomaly . Very unpredictable results . You wouldn't want to risk that in a league week , huge advantage for the team we'd be playing and could cost us priceless points if we're low in petrol .

YE i went down at 11 but was all locked up so could not see what the ground was like.

Ye,i went down to the ground at 2oclock with my mates expecting the game to be on.I would like to know WHY there was not even a placard or something to tell us why the game was cancelled,i think it bloody stinks that not only me but the 4 cars behind me were not aware the game was off,a simple little note would have gone halfway to making the blow a bit softer but, no, that is not way workington town works they make you travel if only 2 miles but i made the effort so why could they not,plus the cars behind also had to travel from god knows where,come on town,it'not the first time this has happened and i would imagine not the last.On a last note i passed (peter)gilmore on the way down to the ground so i do not know if it was peter or clifford that was the commissioner that cancelled the game,but just a note to tell us the games off would have put a lot of people at ease instead of being so ###### off with club and maybe making their minds up to not bother turning up again.

I understand frustrations but they did put it on the website very quickly which led to the forum etc , and we often complain about communication being sluggish so it's hard to fault them on that front here .

Thats fine david if you looked at the website but by the time i surfaced from my crib the website is the last thing on your mind,gametime is my only fixation and not even thinking of the website,but has i have already said a little note explaining why the game was off would have made my day a little bit easier to take and also for the 4 cars behind me so it seems has though they never looked at the website has well,but point taken about the website david,and even now the sun is out and no bloody game,roll on tues or weds.

he's going on about us having weekend off again before playing shaven and then saying the rules say postponed games have to be played on the next available date which will be Wednesday! Bet they would love it if we have to play Wednesday.
