Don’t know who it is, and I’m glad our game is still planned as scheduled but does anybody else think the guidance they are following allows for further infections:

A 'close contact' is defined, in agreement with Public Health England, as a player having face-to-face contact with someone for three or more seconds.

Wigan Warriors, Hull KR players facing further coronavirus tests

The Super League match between Catalans Dragons and Wigan is set to go ahead this weekend despite a Warriors player testing positive for Covid-19.

The player tested positive after Wigan's 34-18 defeat to Hull KR on Thursday and is self-isolating.

Hull KR's trip to St Helens on Friday is also set to go ahead as planned.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they caught it outside of the sport. There have been 350k cases in the UK so far. The North West is a bit of a hot spot. Compare that to Australia with the main RL playing states having had 4k in NSW and 1100 in QLD. I think with those sort of figures it’s hard to avoid cases in the sport here.

Can't be a forward. They didn't make contact with anyone during the HKR match.

Super League Covid-19 update

Wakefield Trinity and Catalans Dragons have received the results of their latest round of squad testing for Covid-19, following recent positive tests. In each case, all the results were negative


This means that both clubs are cleared to return to training this week, to prepare for the next round of scheduled Betfred Super League fixtures – Wakefield are scheduled to face Hull FC on Thursday night (September 10), and Catalans to play Wigan Warriors on Saturday (September 12).

One Wigan Warriors player has tested positive for Covid-19 since their game against Hull KR on Thursday. He is self-isolating.

As he played in that match, Test and Trace analysis has been conducted – with no close contacts identified, in either the Wigan or Hull KR teams. Both teams will have further tests today.

At this stage both clubs plan to go ahead with their scheduled fixtures this week – Hull KR against St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday, and Wigan against Catalans Dragons at Stade Gilbert Brutus in Perpignan on Saturday. Catalans Dragons and St Helens have been informed of the situation.

Mental - Not allowed to celebrate tries with teammates who are all clearly in a bubble together but a player testing positive and played a game is not deemed to be in close contact with anyone?
