FRIDAY'S scheduled Super League clash between Warrington Wolves and Salford Red Devils has been cancelled.

The Red Devils have informed Super League and the RFL that they are unable to fulfil the fixture due to player availability issues.

In a statement on their website, Salford say they had just 13 players available for selection for the match at the Totally Wicked Stadium, including two recent loan signings and two players promoted from the academy.

Warrington Wolves, under competition rules governing forfeited fixtures, will be awarded a 24-0 victory.

The matter will be referred to the RFL’s Compliance Department for further consideration. 

In the meantime, Super League continues to explore fixture rescheduling options in light of this morning’s announcements.

It is understood The Wire could still be in action on Friday with Huddersfield Giants - who saw their clash with Castleford cancelled this morning - being potential opponents.
