WARRINGTON Wolves' Super League clash with Catalans Dragons scheduled for Monday night in Perpignan has been cancelled.

The move follows further impact of Covid-19 on the Catalans club.

Dragons had been placed into Stage 2 of the Multiple Cases Framework last Wednesday after five of their players and two members of backroom staff received positive tests for Covid-19.

That meant they were required to suspend training, and the cancellation of the home fixture against Hull FC that was scheduled for Thursday, October 22.

In subsequent testing, two more players have received positive results, meaning the club remains shut down and will now arrange a further round of testing for early this week.

As the league's statement says the fixture has been 'cancelled' rather than 'postponed', it would seem this contest will not be rearranged as the conclusion of the season continues to draw in.

This means for Steve Price's side, who have not played since defeating Leeds Rhinos at home on Tuesday, October 13, their next outing will be against Salford Red Devils on Friday, October 30.

Catalans have now had FIVE games cancelled this season and must play all their remaining games to ensure they are eligible for the play-offs should they finish in the top four.
