Tonight’s Super League game between Hull Kingston Rovers and Castleford Tigers has been postponed.

The game was meant to take place at the KCOM Craven Park and be shown on Sky Sports but it will now be rearranged for a later date.

KR released a statement, it read: “Following a scheduled meeting between the RFL’s match commissioner, the Ground Safety Officer and representatives from both the club and Hull City Council, the decision has been made this morning to postpone the match due to the forecasted weather conditions.

“Although the pitch has been protected throughout the week, there were concerns regarding player welfare with temperatures predicted to reach -6 with an additional wind-chill factor, whilst it was felt that the pathways in and around KCOM Craven Park, car parking facilities and journeys to and from the stadium posed a risk to home and away supporters.

“With the weather conditions expected to last until the weekend, Hull Kingston Rovers and Castleford Tigers will communicate on Monday with a view to rearranging the match.”
