A CHARITY game involving rugby greats has been cancelled.
But the former Huddersfield player involved in organising the event has vowed it will go ahead at a later date.
Tony Johnson, who played for Huddersfield between 1973 and 1985, was arranging for a team of former players to take on Bradford Bulls stars as a curtain-raiser to the Giants match at Odsal on April 22.
But because of Bradford Bulls’ financial woes the game, which was in aid of cystic fibrosis, has been called off.
Johnson said: “The Bulls felt they could not collect for charity at a time when they need to get every penny they can for the club’s future.
“Many hundreds of pounds have already been pledged for the charity.
“I want the game to go ahead later in the summer and hopefully it could be arranged for the Galpharm Stadium before a Giants match.”
The touch and pass match was set to feature former Huddersfield stars including Basil Richards, Brian Blacker, Andy Farrell and Paul Reilly.
