Weather-watch update for NCL

This afternoon’s televised game in the Kingstone Press Cider National Conference League between Lock Lane and Featherstone Lions looks like going ahead, despite the adverse weather conditions throughout the country.

The pitch at Castleford was given the thumbs-up early this morning, and play is expected to proceed as scheduled at 4.00pm.

The match is being screened live on FreeSports.

Meanwhile the Premier Division `derby’ between West Hull and Myton Warriors has joined the list of postponed games, together with Saddleworth Rangers v West Bowling, and Dewsbury Moor Maroons against Drighlington, in Division Two.

Two other fixtures, both in Division One, were called off overnight – at Bradford Dudley Hill and Skirlaugh, where Oulton Raiders and York Acorn were to have been the respective visitors.

The matches between Shaw Cross Sharks and Leigh Miners Rangers, Hull Dockers and Leigh East, and Gateshead Storm and Oldham St Anne’s, were called off yesterday.
