Halifax’s pre season fixture against Keighley on Sunday has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

Officials took the decision to pull the plug on Saturday morning after inspecting the Shay playing surface, which has been dogged by drainage problems in recent years.

Fax are next due to play at home next weekend against Batley, the 2013 Championship Grand Finalists, before wrapping up their preparations against Featherstone and Leigh.

No new date for the game against the Cougars has been set.
