Hull KR game called off
Tonight’s Betfred Super League fixture between Hull Kingston Rovers and Castleford Tigers at KCOM Craven Park has been postponed.
Following a scheduled meeting between the RFL’s match commissioner, the Ground Safety Officer and representatives from both the club and Hull City Council, the decision has been made this morning to postpone the match due to the forecasted weather conditions.
Although the pitch has been protected throughout the week, there were 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.
With the weather conditions expected to last until the weekend, Hull Kingston Rovers and Castleford Tigers will communicate on Monday with a view to rearranging the match.
