Hull KR and St Helens clash postponed due to Covid-19

Hull KR’s Super League clash with St Helens on Friday, June 25, has been postponed due to positive Covid-19 cases.

Three Hull KR players have tested positive for Covid-19 over the weekend, following two positive tests last week – and nine others have been forced to isolate as close contacts.

Hull KR players who had been selected for the Combined Nations All Stars team have been stood down as part of the isolation procedures.

Under the RFL’s Covid-19 protocols, a team can apply to postpone a match if seven or more senior players are unavailable as a result of Covid-19 – either through positive tests or as close contacts – and the RFL have therefore accepted Hull KR’s request to postpone Friday’s fixture.

Tony Smith’s side could return to action against Hull FC on Thursday July 1 in Round 12, while St Helens are set to play Wigan on Sunday July 4.
