Wigan & Salford fixture changes
Tuesday 17th February 2015
Castleford Tigers have today confirmed changes to the next two coming home games.
Story in brief:
Castleford Tigers have today confirmed changes to the dates of their next two home games.
Castleford Tigers v Wigan Warriors, due to take place on Sunday 8th March will now be played on Friday 6th March with an 8pm kick off.
Castleford Tigers v Salford Red Devils due to take place on Sunday 22nd March will now be played on Friday 20th March with an 8pm kick off.
Speaking on the changes Tigers CEO Steve Gill said: "After speaking with Daryl Powell and discussing the implications of a quick turnaround, we have reluctantly moved our Sunday afternoon game on the 8th of March with Wigan to a Friday night on 6th March. This will give the players a 48 hour longer recovery time for our Thursday evening game at Huddersfield Giants on 12th March.
Steve added: "We have also had to move our home fixture with Salford to Friday 20th March due to Salford Red Devils requesting an earlier kick off. As per the RFL directive we have had to comply with this request as Salford play on the following Thursday. I'd like to apologise for any inconvenience these changes make for our fans, and thank you in advance for your understanding ."
Tickets already purchased for our fixture v Wigan Warriors dated 8th March will still be honoured on Friday 6th March.
