Hull KR postponed training to Wednesday

A fourth Betfred Super League game of the season fell victim to Covid-19.

Friday’s 11th round game between Hull KR and St Helens at Craven Park has been postponed after three other Rovers players tested positive over the weekend.

It follows two positive tests last week as nine other players were forced to self-isolate as close contacts.

Hull KR has postponed training until Wednesday, when a new round of PCR tests will be performed.

The Robins players who were selected for the Combined Nations All Stars were also removed from their posts.

Hull KR said in a statement: “Under RFL’s Covid-19 protocols, a team can request a postponement of a match if seven or more senior players are not available due to Covid-19 – either by tests positive, either as close contacts – and the RFL therefore accepted Hull KR’s request to postpone Friday’s game.

“The clubs will contact the RFL at a possible date to reorganize the game later in the season – although the Betfred Super League table will again be determined by the victory point percentage to allow the possibility that all matches are not filled. “

This is the second time St Helens has a recent game called off. Their away game with Leeds fell victim to the pandemic after an outbreak at the Rhinos camp.

Leeds’ trip to the Catalans Dragons has also been postponed as Huddersfield’s home game against Wigan was called off due to a Covid outbreak at the Giants camp.
