Sunday’s matches in Hull, between Hull KR and Warrington and Hull FC and Leigh have both been called off under the league’s Covid Protocols.

Hull FC have called their game off after a third member of their squad tested positive, with a fourth symptomatic player awaiting a PCR test result. Four more senior-squad players are isolating as close contacts, pushing Hull to the threshold of seven which permits a postponement.

Warrington have cancelled their trip to Hull KR with four of their senior players either positive or symptomatic, with three others isolating as contacts. Two non-playing staff have also tested positive.

“The clubs will now liaise with the RFL about a possible rearrangement of the fixtures – 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,” a statement read.
