Postponed: Castleford v Wigan

Due to adverse weather conditions today's Betfred Super League fixture v Wigan Warriors at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle cannot go ahead.

A pitch inspection took place at 10:00am today and the decision was made to postpone the game in the interest of both player and spectator safety.

Castleford Tigers safety officer Ian Crawford said: "Postponing a game is never an option we take lightly and I must give praise to our groundsman Stuart Vause who really has worked so hard over the past week. The sheer volume of rainfall we had before the snow and sub zero temparatures overnight have left us with a frozen pitch and frozen terraces. We would never want to put anyone in danger while attending a match at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle so postponing this match is unfortunately our only option."

More information will be announced early next week when we are hopeful of confirming the new date for this game to be played, in the meantime fans are asked to keep hold of their tickets.
