Shame for the fans that have turned up.

Why not have a snowball fight or snowman building competition for the two SL points.

Game now confirmed definitely off.


         SL Steve Prescott Man of Steel 2016 - Danny Houghton  SL Top Gun 2016/2017 - Marc Sneyd (83%/89% goal success)

         SL Hit Man 2016/2017 - Danny Houghton (1,289/1,123 tackles)  SL Club of the Year 2016 - Hull FC

         SL Coach of the Year 2016 - Lee Radford   RL Challenge Cup Winners 2016/2017 - Hull FC

 

                                                                      All in all, not a bad couple of years, I suppose...

Looks like not going was one of my better decisions.

Coincidently the only game that I can remember attending that got abandoned was also at Wakefield, that time due to fog.

 


Just because you think everyone hates you doesn't mean they don't.

why not look at  an accurate weather forecast and run the game in a simple professional manner - embarrassing for our game yet again

It really isn't embarrassing - just bad luck that all the snow has come down in one hit. The pitch must have been playable at kick-off so there was no reason to call it off.

The thing about an 'accurate weather forecast' is that you only know it is accurate when the weather happens.

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.

Farcical that the game went ahead.I can understand the game was abandoned for "player safety" but what about the spectators who now have to attempt to get home,especially the Widnes supporters.

Correct.  If the game was called off yesterday and the forecast was wrong, we would be lining up to criticise.

Pitch look marginally playable at kick off. The weather just turned about 30 mins into the match.

Had it not snowed that much, you'd be complaining it should have gone ahead.

These things happen. It's great they tried to get it going. Just unlucky.

luck has nothing to do with it- anyone with half a brain at 3pm in west Yorkshire could have called this better

That was early 90s. It was my first ever Wakefield game I attended aged about 8. Oh the good old days. ?
