Due to the adverse weather conditions experienced overnight in London the London Skolars vs Wigan Warriors preseason friendly will now go ahead in a 10s format on a reduced pitch.
The game will still kick-off at 2:15pm as originally scheduled.
Will health and safety concerns raised by match officials and the HAC management, the decision was made to stage a 10s game on an unaffected smaller pitch that falls into RFL regulation size for a reduced numbers game.
London Skolars General Manager, Charlie DeHaan: “Due to some unsafe areas on the playing surface the game will have to take place in a 10s format on a reduced pitch. After lengthy consultations with match officials, the head groundsman and CEO of HAC and the two teams we game will go ahead in a 10s format on a reduced pitch.
Wigan Warriors executive director Kris Radlinski: “We appreciate the efforts from the HAC and London Skolars to get this game on despite the weather issues. A 10s game on a reduced pitch still gives our players the opportunity to get some valued game time under their belt and both clubs will make the best of the situation.”
