Whitehaven RLFC have confirmed that their clash with Halifax Panthers will kick off earlier – to allow players, staff and fans to enjoy the Euro 2020 final.

England could reach the final of the tournament if they beat Denmark tomorrow night and, anticipating high interest in the event that that happens, both clubs have agreed to kick off at 1pm on Sunday.

A club statement said: "We would like to thank Halifax in their co-operation of bringing forward the kick-off time in anticipation of the European Championship final which we know both sets of players, staff and supporters may have a keen eye on depending on results.

"This earlier kick off will allow all to be able to return home with enough time to watch the fixture."
