Huddersfield Giants are now able to announce changes to three dates in their 2020 Super League fixture list due to the postponement of the Leeds Rhinos Round 2 fixture on Sunday 9th February.
Huddersfield Giants will face Leeds Rhinos on Tuesday 28th April 2020 at 7:45pm at The John Smith’s Stadium, while home fixtures with Salford Red Devils will move to Thursday 23rd April at 7:45pm from it’s original date of Sunday 26th April at 3:00pm and the fixture against Warrington Wolves will now take place on Saturday 18th April at 3:00pm, rescheduled from Sunday 19th April at 3:00pm.
Richard Thewlis, Managing Director said: “This has been an incredibly tough rejig to work through and we have to thank all three clubs involved for their co-operation and understanding that this problem was not of our making and could, in reality happen to any of us such are the vagaries of the weather patterns at this time of year. The solution is far from ideal for anyone but it is a solution that meets the Stadium availability here, the broadcasters games already selected and the player welfare issues which surrounded four day turnarounds. From the Giants perspective too we have to remember that we still have a further game to schedule with Wakefield at some point due to both clubs involvement in the Challenge Cup fifth round when eight of our fellow Super League sides will play the scheduled round seven fixtures meaning that at that stage we will actually be two games behind most of our competitors.”
