Halifax’s home fixture against title rivals Featherstone Rovers has been switched to Thursday, July 11 so it can be screened by Championship broadcaster Premier Sports.

The game was originally scheduled for Sunday, July 14, and Courier Sport understands Fax officials attempted to resist calls to move the game because of the financial implications.

It is the third year in succession the home meeting with Rovers, arguably the biggest home date of the year, has been moved for TV.
