RFL CONFIRM WILDCATS AWARDED VICTORY AFTER ABANDONMENT

posted on 30 March 2013

The RFL’s independent Board of Directors has ruled that the result from the Super League Round 9 fixture, Castleford Tigers 16, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats 37, shall stand.

The RFL have confirmed that the Wildcats have been awarded victory over Castleford Tigers after the abandonment of the game with seven minutes remaining.

The match was abandoned after 73 minutes of play after one of the stands at the Wish Communications Stadium was abandoned following safety concerns over a suspected fire in one of the floodlights.

The RFL Board convened earlier today and decided that the game should be awarded to Wakefield.  Both clubs have supported that decision.

This is Wakefield. Together We Are Stronger.
