Rugby League Today: Inglis gossip, London Broncos celebrate 40 years & Woolford says thanks

What’s on site

Huddersfield will be led by Luke Robinson for their game against Wakefield today, after Simon Woolford and the club decided to part ways earlier than the end of the season, as announced last week.

One man who will be at the game is David Fifita, who has apparently ended his stand-off with Wakefield over wearing a GPS tracking device and held clear the air talks.

Could Greg Inglis make his move to Warrington earlier than expected and be involved in the running? That’s the noise in this week’s Off the Record gossip column.

Ottawa Aces have revealed their latest signing, with some calling it their most high-profile so far – in the shape of former England U20 rugby union international Guy Armitage, from London Broncos.

There have been yet more coronavirus cases in Super League, as Leeds report a positive test, while Wakefield’s game with Huddersfield will go ahead despite cases connected to both of those clubs.

Shame to see Woolford go, always a good interviewee.

If you fancy getting to a game soon. If only.

We get a lot of emails, and one had a few kicking videos in from George this week.
