Wigan fans rage over last minute fixture change

Wigan Warriors fans have spoken out on social media to slam the decision to move their club’s final regular season clash with Castleford from Friday to Thursday next week at short notice.

The Warriors were billed to welcome the Tigers to the DW Stadium on Friday 13th September, but, with the four team relegation dog fight now going down to the final week of the season, the fixture has been brought forward to accommodate two more matches on Friday night, where the relegated side will be determined.

The decision was made yesterday, giving fans less than a week’s notice, and Wigan Today reporter Phil Wilkinson has highlighted a number of Cherry and Whites supporters left fuming by the switch, with many people now unable to come due to work and social commitments.
