When postponed Super League fixtures could be played

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.

But what about the other three? If postponed, when could they be played?

Well perhaps an obvious solution could be to push it back until Sunday with the snow set to finish today however this would of course create shorter turnarounds heading into Round Five of Super League.

An alternative could be clubs playing games the same weekend as England take on France in a throwback to when that would happen such as in 2011 when on Bank Holiday Monday after England beat the Exiles.

Another option, though unlikely, is returning to the traditional double header over Easter which has been taken out of the calendar this year.

Lastly, if clubs are dumped out of the Challenge Cup early, they could of course play on the week of a Challenge Cup Round.
