Two more Super League fixtures postponed

Unfortunately, two more fixtures have fallen to Covid-19 this week.

After a number of games have been postponed in the last few weeks owing to outbreaks of Covid-19 in squads, two more fixtures have now fallen to the virus.

Both Hull KR’s clash with Warrington and Hull FC’s fixture with Leigh Centurions will no longer go ahead tomorrow as planned.

Hull FC opted to postpone their fixture after revealing a number of players, staff and Head Coach Brett Hodgson had tested positive in recent days and have now revealed another member of their senior squad tested positive whilst another player is showing symptoms and is awaiting a PCR test result.

Four more players have been stood down due to the fact they’re considered close contacts under track and trace meaning the Black and Whites have enough players unavailable due to Covid-19 to warrant a postponement.

It’s a similar situation for Warrington. The Wire have four senior players either as confirmed cases or symptomatic whilst a further three players are required to self-isolate as close contacts. This means they also have enough Covid related absentees in their highest paid 25 players to warrant a postponement of the fixture.

The clubs will now work out a new date for the fixtures working closely with the RFL.
