BUCS | Edinburgh Napier Knights v Sheffield Sabres fixture at risk

The Edinburgh Napier Knights have shared the information that their pitch for this weekend’s Division One National Trophy quarter-final fixture vs Sheffield Sabres was declared unplayable earlier today.


DC is aware that both teams are currently working hard to resolve an alternative venue, rather than see yet another postseason fixture fall to tiebreakers, following last week’s loss of six out of eight Final Sixteen fixtures to inclement weather last weekend.


Should the teams be unable to resolve another venue in time, the assumption is that progression to play for promotion in the National Trophy Semi Final will be decided by tiebreakers once more.
