WARRINGTON Wolves' clash with Huddersfield Giants will go ahead this weekend – but slightly later than planned.

The sides will still face off at St Helens' Totally Wicked Stadium on Saturday but kick off has been pushed back from 1pm to 6.30pm.

Last night, news broke that eight members of staff at Hull FC – six players and two coaches – have tested positive for coronavirus.

Five of those players featured in Sunday's defeat to Salford and in accordance with government guidelines, 11 Red Devils players will go into a 14-day period of self-isolation.

Hull's Super League game against Castleford Tigers this weekend will not go ahead while Salford's planned meeting with Catalans Dragons has also been postponed.

As such, Super League have reshuffled this weekend's fixtures so four can go ahead, with two on each day.

St Helens will now play Castleford having been due to face Wakefield, with Trinity now facing the Dragons.

Revised Super League Round Nine fixtures:

Saturday 15th

4.15pm – Wakefield Trinity v Catalans Dragons

6.30pm – Huddersfield Giants v Warrington Wolves

Sunday 16th

4.15pm – St Helens v Castleford Tigers

6.30pm – Wigan Warriors v Leeds Rhinos

Betfred Super League Executive Chairman Robert Elstone said: “Throughout this crisis our priority has been to ensure we minimise any risk, and the postponement of this weekend’s scheduled fixtures involving Hull FC and Salford underlines that approach.

“It left us with another challenging situation, but it is a credit to the solidarity of the Betfred Super League clubs who agreed to adjust the fixture list at such short notice.

“We also appreciate the ongoing support and flexibility of our broadcast partner, and are pleased that we remain able to present four great Super League fixtures this weekend, all live on Sky Sports.”

The rescheduling of the St Helens versus Castleford Tigers fixture leaves a gap in the Round 16 programme, which will now be filled by the St Helens versus Wakefield Trinity match which had been due for this weekend.

The rescheduling means that a new date will be found for Catalans Dragons’ home game against Wakefield Trinity, which had also been due to be played in Round 16.

Those details, along with those regarding the Hull-Castleford and Salford-Catalans matches which had been due this weekend, will be announced when confirmed.

The RFL will make a further announcement as soon as possible regarding the Coral Challenge Cup Sixth Round ties scheduled for Saturday week, August 22 – when Hull FC are due to play Castleford Tigers.
