Salford have postponed their next two fixtures against Hull KR and Wakefield due to COVID-19.
Positive COVID tests mean the postponement of Salford’s next two Betfred Super League fixtures – Thursday’s Round 16 match against Hull Kingston Rovers and the scheduled visit to Wakefield Trinity on Monday 2 August.
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.
Super League has been riddled with problems in 2021 – more so than in 2020, reflecting society as a whole – with almost every club having had some outbreak of the virus this year.
