Whitehaven fixture - URGENT CLARIFICATION PLEASE

Perhaps the club could confirm the correct date and kick off time for this match, as there is definite confusion across various sites. WWR's own fixture list which is hard to find has it as a 1.30 kick off on 24th March (Sunday) most other listings are Saturday 23rd at 3.00pm.


It is exactly this sort of confusion which reflects badly on the club.

Sports fans can only act upon information they receive.

Thanks

Rogero

THANKS!

Hopefully the message gets around to those who need to know.

The club need to make sure others know as it still listed as 3pm Saturday on Whitehaven's own site, the RFL site and bookmakers sites.

Amazingly Whitehaven RLFC and the official RFL site plus other sports sites still have the fixture listed as Saturday 23rd and 3pm.

Somebody needs to make sure things are communicated properly and to the right places,

Kick off is definitely 11am Sunday now unfortunately. They wanted to play on Friday or Saturday but we couldnít because of the football being home we said anytime Sunday they said 130 and now come back after agreed saying it has to be 11am so they can get home

Oh well thats me having to cancel then , i know im only one fan but im prepared to travel nearly 40 miles each way and stay at an hotel to support the team(not many would) and socialise with the other fans after. Same old same old every year changing days and kick off times complete joke.

The thing is Jar these away sides know from the beginning of the season what the fixtures are and at what time. They then decided to change the ko time and the day not once but twice these things should be decided before the fixtures are put out. They all know the distance and travel time involved and they only have to do it once a year. Raiders have to do it every other week. I know that our club cant do anything about it, but its still a let down for me.

Good work Dai - but unfortunately there is no way I can get down for 11.00 am on Sunday morning.

I find it astonishing that when both teams have to agree to a fixture change that WWR seem to have beenforced into doing something they didn't want to. When WWR play away we don't play at times to suit ourselves and I am struggling to remember any Sunday morning kick offs.

Perhaps WWR should demand playing all games at 2.30 am from now on just to upset the hosting clubs?

I am very confused. The RFL insisted on an early morning start? WHY?

Monday 7.25 am - I have just looked at the Whitehaven official site and they still have the fixture as 3pm Saturday 23rd! Just as worrying - the WWR official site still says Sunday 24th with a 1.30pm kick off! I have not looked at other listings as it is too frustrating.

Can you imagine this happening at Cardiff City or Cardiff Blues?

Correct dates and kick off times are the most important info for fans.
