The Betfred Championship has been hit hard by Storm Eunice.
Batley vs Sheffield and Bradford vs Barrow were both cancelled well ahead of schedule whilst this morning Workington Town’s battle with Halifax has bit the dust with the Ground Safety Officer at Workington deciding that the safety concerns were too great for the game to go ahead.
However, the last remaining Championship fixture today has been confirmed as going ahead by York City Knights. The Knights and opponents Leigh have both won two of their opening three fixtures as they both look to fulfil their Super League ambitions.
Seen as a huge game, fans are set to still be able to enjoy the game with York taking to Twitter to confirm that the game will indeed go ahead.
They said: “This afternoon’s game against Leigh Centurions is on with the pitch in good shape and no inspection required.”

The Knights quite rightly seem proud of their LNER Stadium with a pitch inspection not even required despite the tumultuous weather we’ve seen over the last few days.
As the game goes ahead, both sides will look to gain ground on Featherstone who continued their perfect start yesterday defeating London. Newcastle also downed Whitehaven in the only 15:00 kick off on Saturday. Meanwhile, tomorrow Dewsbury and 100 percenters Widnes meet in the final game of the round in front of the Premier Sports cameras.
