Two more Super League fixtures fall by the wayside due to COVID

Salford have had to postpone their next two Super League fixtures due to positive COVID tests.

The Red Devils were scheduled to face Hull KR on Thursday and then Wakefield on Monday 2 August, but both fixtures will no longer be going ahead.

Under the RFL’s Covid-19 protocols, a team can apply to postpone a match if seven or more senior players are unavailable as a result of Covid-19 – either through positive tests or as close contacts. Unfortunately, Salford have exceeded this threshold.

The postponed fixtures will be added to the list for possible rearrangement, although the Betfred Super League table is to be determined by win points percentage to allow for the possibility of not all fixtures being fulfilled.

Salford are currently ninth in the table following four wins from 14 games.
