KEIGHLEY Cougars have had to cancel a fan inclusive open training session for tomorrow (February 19) due to Storm Eunice.

The event, which was due to be held at Cougar Park, would have seen fans presented with the opportunity to watch the players train, as well as participate in an open Q&A following the session.

In an announcement letting fans know about the event being called off, Cougars said: "The pitch here at Cougar Park is a tad wet and with weather warnings in place, spectator and player safety is of even more paramount importance."

The training portion of the event was meant take place outside on the pitch and would have seen not just the Cougars first team, but also Keighley's League 1 counterparts Midlands Hurricanes in attendance.

The two sides had planned to train alongside each other before participating in a number of game scenarios, officiated by RFL referee Liam Staveley.

Following the conclusion of training shortly before noon, the players were all set to be on hand for fans to get both autographs and photographs..

The Hall of Fame bar was set be open throughout the training portion of the event with food and hot drinks available.

The club shop was due to be open for supporters wishing to pre-order Cougars' 2022 range and/or purchase their 2021 range from the end of season sale

Following the conclusion of the training session, there was supposed to be a Q&A held from noon until 1pm in the Hall of Fame bar.

The fans would have been able to ask questions to a four-man panel of Cougars head of rugby Andrew Henderson, head coach Rhys Lovegrove, a member of the first team squad (TBC), and RFL referee Staveley.

The first three would have been on hand to answer questions regarding the club, team, and rugby.

Staveley was set to answer fan questions regarding the return of scrums, disciplinary proceedings, and the new rules implemented to the sport since last year's return to action following the pandemic.

This open training session was going to be free entry for all supporters.
