Our home fixture with Liverpool St Helens has been postponed as they are not able to fulfill the fixture.
The RFL run North West Mens League allows any club in the 2021 season to postponed a fixture without penalty. Up until this year any team unable to complete a scheduled fixture without the consent of the opposition would forfeit the game. This year because of the impacts of COVID the NW Mens league relaxed this rule, however in doing so they have opened the flood gates for clubs to postponed games for a whole range of non COVID related reasons.
Despite concerns raised by ourselves and other clubs that teams are exploiting the relaxation of the rule The RFL seem unable or unwilling to address these concerns.
