That could be a pain for both sides - not many free weekends between now and end of the season.

They've moved it to tomorrow night at 18:00. I live five minutes from Kingston Park and it's been windy all day but this storm is supposed to come in during the match, it's the right call to be fair as the forecast is better for tomorrow evening.

PhilW is that why the game is at 18.00 hrs rather than 15.00hrs, which at least would have given the team and supporters a reasonable chance of getting home in the same day. Maybe an nights stay in a hotel as well if they travelled up yesterday and planned to travel back tonight. No refunds for supporters who can't make it either.
P.S The team did travel up yesterday, with reserves and support staff coming up today so maybe there was always a Friday night booked - or not.

Certainly a later game allows time for any potential clear up. Falcons have also been doing a ticket deal with the racecourse and the races are on tomorrow so that could be another reason. But I'm guessing Worcester would have to agree to a time. Have seen the stuff on Twitter and the falcons forum about refunds although it's in the terms and conditions not sure if they might look at that given exceptional circumstances.
