Four more Wakefield players test positive for Covid

Wakefield have lost four more players due to the coronavirus pandemic but say Thursday’s Super League fixture with Huddersfield at St Helens will go ahead.

Trinity coach Chris Chester revealed the latest news at his weekly press conference via zoom, describing it as “another kick in the teeth”.

A fortnight ago, Chester was left with just 17 players for a game against St Helens after being forced to stand down eight players through track and trace.

“We were made aware late last night of four positives this week, three players and one member of staff,” Chester said. “They are now isolating for 10 days.

“We’ve had to stand two extra people down, one player and one member of staff, through track and trace.

“It’s another kick in the teeth. But we’ve got those guys back that missed the last couple of weeks through track and trace so we’re looking pretty fit and healthy to be honest.”

  1. Wakefield have had a really hard time this season. Theyve lost a number of games against supposedly better sides by the odd point or two a d seem to have regularly had to stand players down due to the virus. So well done tonight showing lots of grit and determination to win v the Giants.
