Super League games could be in doubt after heavy snowfall.
The country entered a cold snap yesterday with snow flurries throughout the day but the dropping temperatures last night and persistent snowfall throughout the night through to this morning has most of the country white over plunging sporting contests into doubt.
There are four Super League games scheduled tonight.
Huddersfield Giants host Castleford Tigers in a game scheduled to be on Sky Sports and act as the Tigers refresh after the departure of Lee Radford.
Elsewhere two teams who have impressed early this season collide in Hull as Hull KR host Warrington Wolves who could go top of the league with a win by four points or more.
Champions St Helens will try and get back on track away at newly promoted Leigh Leopards who beat Hull KR last year,
Elsewhere there is a West Yorkshire derby at Headingley between Leeds Rhinos and Wakefield Trinity. Though the Rhinos have confirmed that this fixture will go ahead.
Now the RFL have given the following update to Serious About Rugby League:
“Leeds have said all fine at Headingley – I gather there’s snow around in Leeds now but forecast suggests it should clear through the afternoon
“No issues at Leigh – there’s no snow over this side
“Hull KR also no indication of any threat at this stage – again, forecast is for improvement through the afternoon
“Huddersfield have said they will make an announcement about midday, again when things have hopefully improved.”
