Super League: Leigh-Warrington latest fixture to be postponed due to Covid outbreak

Leigh’s home game against Warrington on Thursday has become the 13th fixture in the Betfred 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 on Monday.

That 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.

Beaten Challenge Cup finalists Castleford have reported three positive tests, one of them involving a player who saw action 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.

The club will undergo a further round of PCR testing on Tuesday.
