Leigh will no longer be playing Warrington this weekend after a COVID outbreak, whilst Castleford’s clash with Catalans is in jeopardy following the positive tests of three members of staff, but how has social media reacted?
One fan was fuming at Castleford.
Should be kicked out of the league all OK at weekend but struggling before and after Wembley what a joke

More supporters echoed that sentiment.
100k fine and kick Cas out of the league, give Fev the spot instead

Bold strategy from Cas to avoid playing any Super League games this year

But, Castleford fans responded.
Cas have played the joint most games in the league. Don't let the truth get in the way though.

I think people are forgetting how fast new cases are flying up and these lads aren't millionares locked away just normal folk like us and they get tested twice a week could crop up at any moment and before you know it they all have it! Other fans grow up 😂😂

This is off field staff testing positive and not even the players but yet still opposition fans cry.
Every club has pretty much had a game postponed and some Covid cases. Get a fucking grip and look at the real world. People are getting pinged left, right and centre https://t.co/wrmfLc4OG2

Absolute state of these comments, most SL games played this season in order.

With Warrington’s game against Leigh also postponed, one fan called for the end of testing players.
STOP 👏🏼 TESTING 👏🏼 FIT 👏🏼 AND 👏🏼 HEALTHY 👏🏼 PLAYERS 👏🏼

One fan even called for the season to be ended.
This is getting more pathetic as each week goes by. Null and void the season! https://t.co/ARHB6dFn0u

Another supporter couldn’t hold back his frustrations.
Rugby league…the gift that keeps fucking giving. Absolute shambles of a sport. https://t.co/4nSrS4L7Nd
