WIGAN Warriors have confirmed their away fixture with Castleford Tigers has been brought forward two days.

The trip to the Mend-a-Hose Jungle was originally scheduled for Sunday March 8, but the decision has been taken to play the match on Friday March 6 with an 8pm kick-off.

The Tigers’ trip to Huddersfield the following Thursday is the reason behind the switch and a Sunday game would have given them just three days to prepare. Wigan initially rejected the request from Castleford but the RFL have stepped in and allowed the fixture to be brought forward.
