Club statement – Saints match postponed
The Betfred Super League fixture between Hull KR and St Helens which was scheduled for Friday (June 25) has been postponed.
Three Hull KR players have tested positive for Covid-19 over the weekend, following two positive tests last week – and nine others have been forced to isolate as close contacts.
Training has been postponed until Wednesday under the Multiple Cases Protocols, with a further round of PCR testing to be carried out then.
Hull KR players who had been selected for the Combined Nations All Stars team have been stood down as part of the isolation procedures.
Under the RFL’s Covid-19 protocols, a team can apply to postpone a match if seven or more senior players are unavailable as a result of Covid-19 – either through positive tests or as close contacts – and the RFL have therefore accepted Hull KR’s request to postpone Friday’s fixture.
The clubs will liaise with the RFL on a possible date to rearrange the match later in the season – although the Betfred Super League table will again be determined by win points percentage to allow for the possibility of not all fixtures being fulfilled.Back To Latest News +
