Featherstone Rovers v Hunslet Hawks: Boxing Day clash frozen off

The Boxing Day game between Featherstone Rovers and visitors Hunslet Hawks has been frozen off.

Rovers had been confident the Big Fellas Stadium pitch would be fit, but chief executive Stuart Sheard said: "We have had to call it off.

"The pitch had softened yesterday afternoon under the covers, but it is frozen again and the forecast is pretty dire.

"We wanted to give people plenty of notice, rather than do it tomorrow afternoon or even later. It seemed the sensible thing to do."

The game has been re-arranged for Sunday, January 2 (3pm).
