game off

52 posts in this topic

Heppy, we wanted to play, you knocked it back.End of.

Ref: looks dangerous to me, what do you think lads.

Home coach: I dont mind risking my lads.

Away coach: I would love a game but, my lads have families and jobs to think about, its just not worth the risk.

Ref: Thanks for your input lads, but its my call and for me it is clearly unsafe. So game off.

If this is anywhere near the scenario you suggest, KOL then I think your doing your coach a disservice. And as the ref has the final call, Im sure if the pitch were acceptable to him then the game would have been on.

and that PSF, is what I would suggest is more or less it!!! A risk assessment was made and whatever the "facts" are, the game wasn't played. I'm not surprised either and I would much sooner play it another day than risk injuries on a near frozen pitch.

Leeds United are playing Spurs on wednesday, so traffic around the ground would be a nightmare.

both clubs may even play thier 3 other games before re-arranging it.if it then turns out to be a "dead-rubber" they may not even play it!..(sure it happened last season with someone...they just ended up not bothering as any kind of result made no differnnce whatsoever to table outcomes etc)

We don't have a serious game for nearly six months and now can't fit them all in. No wonder we find it difficult to find new supporters to turn out each week! It all gets very confusing.

Just as a side not to this debate, i've just walked from 9 am to 5 pm in glorious sunshine through animal fields with thick grass on top (work not pleasure Lorne lol) and even with the sun the soil was still totally rock hard frozen at the end of the day, i'm not suprised they cancelled it..... it was the right decision

7th is the Challenge Cup so we should be playing an amateur side. Presume the thinking is that we should be able to rest a few players, particularly in the forwards given the strength of the squad. We'll also know if the Hunslet game means anything in terms of the group.

ahhh thought as much.i can see the logic behind it now.we have enough qaulity now to take care of amateurs 3 days later and rest some of the lads.all 3 other group games will have been played (or should have, as he looks at the SNOW thro the window!).

i touched on this on another post.it could turn out to be a "dead rubber"..so send the u21s or dont play at all :D

Just wondering Paul, given the job that you do. How is walking through animal fields with thick grass on top part of your job description. :D

Got info from Ponte & Cas!

New date for Hunslet-Rovers match

FEATHERSTONE'S Northern Rail Cup game against Hunslet Hawks at South Leeds Stadium has been re-arranged for Thursday, March 4 (8pm).

The match was postponed last weekend because of a frozen pitch.

Rovers coach Daryl Powell said: "It's on the Thursday before we play in the Challenge Cup.

"The only other date that was available to us was next week and I didn't want to play the Hunslet game in between the Sheffield and Leigh matches which are going to be really challenging fixtures for us."
