Wales postpone spring programme

Wales Rugby League have had to postpone their spring fixtures, with some historical matches having to be put on hold due to coronavirus.

They were due to play their first ever Masters games in May against England and Ireland, but they will have to wait for now.

Their Wheelchair side was also due to face Scotland and Ireland in the Celtic Cup in Dundee this month. That has also been called off.

Finally, their student side was due to take on the Royal Navy and England in Nelson. That was also due to be this month.

The programme from June onwards remains in doubt.

Wales Rugby League CEO Gareth Kear told the official website: “It is a great pity that these games have to be postponed, especially after all the hard work that has been put in by players and staff.

“In these unpresented times I can assure every one Wales Rugby League are working closely with the RFL, Super League and the Rugby League European Federation on contingency plans for our community and international pathways.

“We are confident that our club season will start this summer followed by an international programme for all of our teams.”
