The club said in a statement: "Periods of rain throughout Wednesday along with a worsening raceday forecast have led club chiefs to make the early call to minimise inconvenience for all involved.

"A restaging date will be announced in due course."

The team' s next meeting will be at Belle Vue on Easter Monday (April 1, 12 noon) with the first home meeting now set to be the visit of the Aces at Owlerton next Thursday (April 4, 7.30) n the Premiership Knockout Cup Quarter-Finals.
