Warrington to be awarded 24-0 victory? The RFL has its say

Warrington will NOT be awarded a 24-0 win over Catalans, the Warrington Guardian has revealed.

The Wolves’ home clash with the Dragons was cancelled merely hours before the two times were set to take to the field at the Halliwell Jones Stadium, but the decision was taken before the French side boarded their plane.

Though the threshold under the COVID Fixture Protocols is seven cases before a match can be postponed, the Dragons had just four of their “essential staff” down with COVID.

However, the Warrington Guardian has confirmed that the governing body adjudged to postpone the game before any further cases materialised.

“The decision to shut down Catalans Dragons with immediate effect (i.e. once the outbreak was confirmed) was made by the RFL’s Multiple Case Group,” the RFL revealed.g.

“The game was postponed and could still be rearranged so talk of a 24-0 walkover is not relevant.”

There has been no further development about when the postponed game will take place in the future.

Many clubs this season have still fulfilled fixtures with 4 or more players unavailable due to Covid. “Essential staff”. Ridiculous. Quite obviously one rule for Catalans and another rule for everyone else. Another reason to lose interest in what was the greatest sport in this country.
