Although fans are not yet allowed into the ground, online streams are available and HWD Hospital Radio has been granted special access to the Tetley Stadium to bring live commentary of each home game as it happens.

HWD Hospital Radio is a charity which serves patients and staff at Mid Yorkshire Trust hospitals, but modern technology means anyone with access to the internet can tune into what’s happening on air through its website, using a computer, smartphone, tablet or smart speaker.

Commentator Martin Sharpe said: “I’ve been commentating on rugby league matches now for almost 40 years and it will be a pleasure to bring all the on-the-pitch moments back to the radio again.”

The season gets going on Saturday, April 3 when the Rams take on Whitehaven.
