Hull KR’s Ethan Ryan is unfazed by the emerging virus cases in Super League and has praised the RFL’s handling of the situation.
Multiple fixtures have been cancelled since the competition resumed and a fixture pile-up is now not too far around the corner.
Despite this, the Robins winger says that while he and his teammates continue to follow the protocols, he has no concerns about carrying on as normal.
“It is unfortunate what has happened at Wakefield but as a player, it does not really get me any more nervous,” Said Ryan ahead of Hull KR’s game against Wigan on Thursday.
“We are just getting on with things, especially here. We are doing our best to be squeaky clean.
“The good thing is, when people do test positive, the RFL are going about it the right way by making them isolate, rearranging fixtures and things like that.
“I tend to not let it bother me too much. They are trying to handle this as safely as possible and whatever happens is going to happen.”
Having only joined Rovers ahead of this season on a two-year deal, Ryan has endured a frustrating first year to date.
But with the fixtures starting to come thick and fast, the 24-year-old former Bradford star is hopeful a consistent run in the side will allow him to flourish for the remainder of the campaign.
“If I play well, I would like to think I can get a contract extension,” Ryan added.
“Obviously, you have to perform in the game you get given. I knew when I came over here I would have to fight to get in the team.
“I knew I would not be a regular starter straight away but hopefully, if I can get a good run of games in then an extension will come on the back of that.”
