Men's Rugby League Thirteenth game called off due to Covid-19

LEIGH’S home game against Warrington on Thursday has become the 13th fixture in the Super League to fall victim to the rise in Covid-19 cases.

The Wolves, who have a number of players still unavailable following the outbreak which led to the postponement of their last fixture against Hull KR, reported a further positive test today which took the number of players ruled out to nine — above the threshold of seven needed to request a postponement.

There is also a doubt over Castleford’s clash with Catalans Dragons on Saturday after the Challenge Cup finalists reported three positive tests, one of them involving a player who played against St Helens at Wembley on Saturday.

As a result, all 21 players who travelled on the coach to London, as well as the coaching staff, have been told to isolate until further notice and the club will undergo a further round of PCR testing on Tuesday.
