However three matches will definitely go ahead this afternoon – Leigh Centurions v Oldham, Dewsbury Rams v London Skolars and Blackpool Panthers v Keighley Cougars. All three kick off at 3.00pm.

The following fixtures have been postponed: Sheffield Eagles v Halifax, Whitehaven v Batley Bulldogs, Widnes Vikings v Gateshead Thunder, Doncaster v Barrow Raiders, Rochdale Hornets v York City Knights, Workington Town v Swinton Lions and Hunslet Hawks v Featherstone Rovers.
