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

The club are asking for volunteers to clear the snow at Belle Vue this morning if anyone wishes to volunteer .

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?

Quick turn around for Leeds.

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.

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.

No, you should add some more to that: those of both teams and the officials. The game shouldn't have gone ahead but both teams wanted the rest time prior to Good Friday. Both terraces had to be closed as they weren't safe. Almost 100 fans and staff mucked in to clear the snow off the covers earlier in the day but by the time kick off came around there was a complete covering of snow on the pitch (bar at the East Stand end which was protected from the wind by the East Stand). The snow did not stop throughout the match and was blowing strongly in our faces the whole time. God knows how cold it was on the pitch itself but it was freezing and wet in the North Stand. However, we still had the option to take a risk with the surrounding area and there were stories of people slipping, some quite hilarious. But that's life in the UK. Grown ups should be allowed to make their own decisions.

That's a bit mean. It seemed a reaonable post to me.

This 6 month Russian winter is awful for all of us. In some ways, once you're warm, running around isn't too bad. Woudn't be a union in this weather though.

Leeds may be looking at 2 mid week fixtures later in the year. Bagsy playing them after one of those.

Sounds like Wakefield council has made the right decision then.

Fans cleared the snow at Wakefields ground but it's the surrounding area that are dangerous.The thought of followers of both clubs slipping and injuring themselves isn't worth the risk.Saintlass seems to think that people slipping and falling is funny,says it all really.

We'll play you any time,as long as Sam has another dead leg ;)
