With the forecast snow having arrived in Leeds overnight, the Leeds Rhinos operation team have swung into action to make sure tonight’s Betfred Super League clash with Wakefield Trinity at Headingley will go ahead as planned.
There was steady snow showers up until 4am and before a heavy front of snow arrived after that. The undersoil heating at Headingley has been on for two days and has ensured the pitch is playable tonight despite around 75mm of snow falling all around the stadium.
Head Groundsman Ryan Golding and his team had plans in place before the snow to deal with the forecast snowfall with the pitch cleared early on Friday morning and the club bringing in private contractors to clear the car parks and St Michaels Lane.
