How the “spread like wildfire” of COVID has ravaged one Super League squad

Warrington hadn’t really hit a hard time with COVID until a fortnight ago.

But, since then, two of their fixtures – against Hull KR and Leigh – have been postponed with some squad members testing positive and others being forced to self-isolate under track and trace protocols.

That has left just 12 of Price’s squad actually able to train, with Warrington head coach Steve Price bemoaning the current situation at the club, the Warrington Guardian has reported.

“We run a pretty tight programme here, but we got one in and it has just spread like wildfire,” Price said.

“A number of players have been hit with it and it’s unfortunate.

“Their health is paramount – we’ve got a very limited squad at the moment but we’ll get a few back early next week.

“Our training facility was shut down last week and we returned on Monday after our PCR results came through.

“We have 12 players training at the moment and we’re just doing the best we can. There’s only a small amount we can really do but we’re keeping it positive and upbeat.”
