HULL FC and Salford Red Devils have cancelled their scheduled training sessions for today after a number of Hull FC players tested positive for Covid-19 following Sunday’s Betfred Super League fixture between the teams.

Five Hull FC players who were involved in the match have tested positive, in addition to a sixth who was not in their matchday 17 – while a sixth member of Sunday’s 17 is having a retest after an inconclusive result.

All who test positive are now required to quarantine for 10 days - until August 21 – in line with national guidance.

Two members of Hull’s coaching staff have also tested positive.

There are now unconfirmed reports that 11 Salford players are now required to self-isolate for 14 days.

But at the time of the last official update from the Rugby Football League Salford’s routine weekly test results had not yet been received.

Announcements on the impact on forthcoming Betfred Super League and Coral Challenge Cup fixtures over the next two weekends will be made as soon as possible.

Salford are due to play Catalans Dragons on Saturday, while Hull FC are slated to face Castleford Tigers on Sunday - both at the Totally Wicked Stadium in St Helens.
