Huddersfield confirm fixture changes

Huddersfield have announced changes to their fixtures against Warrington and Salford, as well as confirming a new date for the round two fixture against Leeds.

Their fixture against Leeds fell to postponement on February 9th, and has been rearranged for Tuesday 28th April at the John Smiths Stadium, with a 7:45pm kick off.

The Giants will face Salford on Thursday 23rd April with a 7:45pm kick off at home, while they will now face Warrington on Saturday 18th April at 3:00pm.

Richard Thewlis, Managing Director said: “This has been an incredibly tough rejig to work through and we have to thank all three clubs involved for their co-operation and understanding that this problem was not of our making and could, in reality happen to any of us such are the vagaries of the weather patterns at this time of year.

“The solution is far from ideal for anyone but it is a solution that meets with stadium availability here, the broadcasters games already selected and the player welfare issues which surround four day turnarounds.

“From the Giants perspective too we have to remember that we still have a further game to schedule with Wakefield at some point due to both clubs involvement in the Challenge Cup fifth round when eight of our fellow Super league sides will play the scheduled round seven fixtures meaning that at that stage we will actually be two games behind most of our competitors.”
