Wigan Warriors’ trip to Castleford this afternoon is OFF.

After a 10am pitch inspection the call was made to postpone the Super League fixture at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle for both player and fan 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 on when the match we be rearranged for. Fans are asked to keep hold of their tickets.
