    Tragedy Hits as Youngster Dies on the Pitch

    Sunday night's Celtic Crusaders versus Wakefield game in the engage Super League was postponed due to the death of Wildcats player Leon Walker in a reserve team fixture.

    The announcement came just 35 minutes before the match in Bridgend was due to kick-off.

    The 20-year-old player, who was in his first season with Wakefield, is thought to have suffered a heart attack during the Wildcats reserves' match against their Crusaders counterparts at Maesteg on Sunday.

    Eye witnesses reported the player going awkwardly into a tackle, getting to his feet and playing the ball before then collapsing.

    Attempts were made on the field to revive him and the match was abandoned after 63 minutes while he was airlifted to the Morriston Hospital in Swansea, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

    The Rugby Football League took the decision to postpone the Super League match between the two clubs. Initially no reason was given for the decision, other than "unforeseen circumstances", because the player's parents had not been informed.
    A sad day for Wakefield and the sport as a whole, condolences to his family and friends.

    R.I.P. Leon.
