Tigers have further games cancelled

Castleford Tigers’ fixtures, against Leeds Rhinos this Friday and Salford Red Devils next Monday, have been cancelled after four more players tested positive for Covid-19.

Castleford’s game against Huddersfield Giants that was scheduled for last Friday was cancelled after 13 players received positive results following testing last Tuesday.

After the latest positive results, the RFL’s Multiple Cases Group has extended the shutdown of the club.

No decision has yet been made on Castleford’s Round 22 fixture against Wakefield Trinity, with two further rounds of testing to be carried out this week.
