Todays Draw for 5th Round Ace Insurance (Europe) BARLA National Cup Cancelled


The severe weather conditions and the cancellation of at least three ties and more expected, as decimated the 4th Round Ace Insurance (Europe) BARLA National Cup.

As a result the live draw for the 5th Round of the Ace Insurance (Europe) BARLA National Cup which should have taken place at the clubhouse of Skirlaugh ARLFC today has been cancelled.

Their fixture against Wigan St Cuthberts is one of the victims of the weather.

As well as the cancellation of the draw for the 5th Round, the date for playing those 5th Round ties will have to be put back. They were scheduled to be played on the 14th February when the Carnegie Challenge Cup ties are taking place and some clubs are still both involved in both cups.

Competitions Secretary Nigel Hollingsworth said,

"Because of the severe weather conditions and postponments of games in the fourth round the draw for the fifth round has been cancelled and put back.

"I will have to look at a fresh date to make the draw,when the postponed cup ties can be played and a new date will now have to be found for the 5th Round games as they were due to be played next weekend.

"That weekend see’s games being played in the next round of the Carnegie Challenge Cup and some clubs are still involved in that as well as the Ace Insurance (Europe) BARLA National Cup.

"I know that this is frustrating for the clubs still involved in our competition when planning ahead and booking coaches if they are drawn away in the next round. I am trying to arrange dates for the postponed games but there is nothing anyone can do about the weather.

"An annoucement for the date for the draw will be made as soon as possible as will the new date for the fifth round ties.
