York City Knights v Hunslet Hawks called off
2:11pm Friday 18th January 2013 in Sport
YORK City Knights’ pre-season friendly at home to Hunslet Hawks on Sunday has been postponed.
The Huntington Stadium pitch is frozen solid and the forecast is for more freezing temperatures with little chance of a thaw in time for the 3pm kick off that day.
The club inspected the surface this afternoon and took an early decision to call the game off.
The Knights have one pre-season fixture remaining ahead of their Championship opener at Whitehaven on Sunday, February 3, and that is at home to partnership Super League club Hull FC next Sunday.
