Sky Sports drop Super League fixture due to it being in doubt

Sky Sports will show the Betfred Super League Round Six fixture between Wigan Warriors and Salford Red Devils on Friday week, March 24.

This change from the originally scheduled fixture, between Wakefield Trinity and Hull KR, has been requested by the RFL and RL Commercial following the recent issues regarding the playing surface at the Be Well Support Stadium.

The RFL and RL Commercial are grateful to all involved – the four clubs, and Sky Sports – for their co-operation, and stress that the Wakefield versus Hull KR fixture remains scheduled for the Be Well Support Stadium on March 24.

But that remains subject to a pitch inspection early next week, so this change has been made to provide clarity for supporters, viewers and for Sky Sports.

The last pitch inspection at the ground saw Wakefield Trinity vs Huddersfield Giants go ahead in Round Three.

Wakefield lost away to Leeds Rhinos last week and are away from home this week at Salford Red Devils.

However, there is still doubts about the pitch especially after the complaints made by Catalans Dragons.
