SALFORD'S CATALANS MATCH IS OFF AS THE ENTIRE SQUAD GOES INTO ISOLATION AFTER SUNDAY'S MATCH AGAINST HULL
Salford's Red Devil had to cancel training sessions this week as it was revealed that five out of six unnamed Hull players tested positive for the virus after the teams played over the weekend.
It has now been announced that the match against Catalan Dragons this coming Saturday has been cancelled as the whole of the Salford match day squad from the game last Sunday has been put into isolation.
It is understood that so far none of the Salford players have tested positive for the virus but under current guidance from Public Health England, 11 players would need to self isolate.
Instead, Catalan will now play against Wakefield Trinity this weekend with the match against Salford to be scheduled for a later date.
This latest development will come as a blow to the beleaguered contact sport which is struggling to find it's footing in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
