COVID-19 strikes again as game gets called off

The Betfred Championship fixture between Halifax Panthers and Sheffield Eagles which was scheduled for Sunday (May 16) has been postponed.

Seven members of Sheffield’s playing staff have been identified as positive Covid-19 cases (2) or close contacts (5).

Seven players being ruled out for Covid-related reasons is the minimum which permits the postponement of a fixture under the RFL’s Protocols.

In addition, the club have postponed their scheduled training sessions for the rest of this week.

The fixture will now be rearranged for the weekend of June 5-6, one of the two available match slots for rearrangements in the 2021 Betfred Championship season.
