Friday night’s Betfred Super League fixture between Huddersfield Giants and Castleford Tigers has been cancelled after the Tigers reported 12 positive Covid-19 tests in the latest round.
The RFL and Super League will today liaise with Public Health England, Castleford Tigers and the Tigers’ last opponents, Leeds Rhinos, before the Multiple Case Group meets to consider the data and decide next steps.
Super League and the RFL are actively exploring all options and will make a further announcement as soon as practicable.
Castleford’s tests were conducted on Tuesday 27 October. The results of this week’s testing across all clubs will be provided as soon as complete information is available.
