WARRINGTON Wolves' players and coaching staff will go through Covid-19 testing today along with the four Super League play-off semi-finalists and the other eliminated team.

Steve Price's men, knocked out 27-14 by Hull FC on Thursday, remain in training and on standby to replace any of Wigan Warriors, St Helens, Catalans Dragons or Hull FC in this week's semi-finals should any of the teams have to withdraw through a coronavirus outbreak in their camp.

And if a second team found themselves in that position then Leeds Rhinos – defeated by Catalans on Friday – would also be recalled.

It is a part of the contingency planning put in place by the RFL to ensure the semi-finals take place in time for the Grand Final to be played no matter what on Friday, November 27 – making certain the season concludes and obligations are met with broadcasters Sky Sports.

Similarly, Huddersfield Giants – who finished outside of the play-off positions in seventh – were on standby last week in case they needed to rescue one of the elimination contests.

Here's what the contingency document says about this week's semi-finals:

Round Two – Semi Final Play-Offs (November 19-20)

If any of the four clubs who qualify for the Semi Final Play-Offs (Wigan, St Helens and the two Elimination Play-Off winners) are unable to play on the scheduled date, possible reserve dates have been agreed with Sky.

If a club is unable to play either on the scheduled date or any of the reserve dates, they will be replaced by the highest-ranked loser from the Elimination Play-Offs.

(If two clubs are unable to play, both Elimination Play-Off losers will be recalled to the series)

Last week, Huddersfield were informed on Tuesday night that their services were not required and therefore it can be taken that Warrington Wolves will probably learn of this week's situation in a similar timeframe.

And if The Wire are not needed to provide a rescue act, their 2020 season will finally be confirmed as over and this announcement can be expected on Wednesday.

But for the moment Price's team continue to prepare to face any of four teams in a match that, more than likely, will not happen.

This week's semi-final schedule:

Thursday 19 November (DW Stadium): Wigan Warriors v Hull FC (7.45pm)

Friday 20 November (Totally Wicked Stadium): St Helens v Catalans Dragons (7.45pm)
