Super League match postponed after M62 closure

Tonight's Super League match between Hull and the Bradford Bulls at the KC Stadium has been postponed following the closure of the M62.

The match will now be played at 3pm on Sunday after some of the Hull players were still attempting to arrive at the stadium after the scheduled kick-off.

The Bradford team coach had earlier been caught up in the congestion, caused by an over-turned tanker between junctions 34 and 35, but had arrived at the stadium with just 30 minutes to spare before the 8p kick-off.

Following the traffic chaos, which had also slowed Bradford fans heading east along the M62, the game was initially delayed until 9.15pm. But after further problems the Rugby Football League announced the game would be delayed until Sunday.
