Following a joint meeting between the club, Kirklees Council and Batley Bulldogs both clubs are much clearer on how they are allowed to operate on match days and what restrictions they face.

What is abundantly clear as far as the Rams are concerned is that the restriction on spectator numbers, the sale of alcohol and food and beverages as well as movement within the stadium will be severely restricted. The Rams have initially been allocated a capacity of 635 but even that contains restrictions. The club has therefore approached Batley Bulldogs with a view to postponing the fixture scheduled for 23rd May to a date later in the season that falls after the hopeful further lifting of restrictions from 21st June.

Batley have been supportive of this in view of the exceptional and severe financial implications that the current restrictions are causing both clubs. This decision has still to be ratified by the RFL. More details will be posted in due course.
