Hull KR’s clash with Castleford postponed

Thursday’s televised clash between Hull Kingston Rovers and Castleford has been postponed, the Robins have confirmed.

A pitch inspection took place this morning and the game was subsequently deemed unplayable due to the forecasted weather conditions.

The decision was made following a scheduled meeting between the RFL’s match commissioner, the Ground Safety Officer and representatives from both the club and Hull City Council.

In a statement, Hull KR said: “Concerns regarding player welfare with temperatures predicted to reach -6 with an additional wind-chill factor, whilst it was felt that the pathways in and around KCOM Craven Park, car parking facilities and journeys to and from the stadium posed a risk to home and away supporters.”

The clubs will decide on a date for the rearranged game next week.
