Next Sunday’s Women’s Super League clash between St Helens and Wigan has been postponed due to Covid-19.
One of the Saints players tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday, within 48 hours of the club’s win over York in the Women’s Challenge Cup final at the Leigh Sports Village.
Test and Trace analysis of the match and celebrations that followed has required more than five St Helens players to self-isolate for 10 days as close contacts. Therefore, this weekend’s game against Wigan will be postponed under the Covid-19 protocols.
At this stage only one of the York players has identified as a close contact through Test and Trace analysis of the game, so their match against Wakefield will go ahead as planned on Sunday.
The RFL say it is hoped the St Helens-Wigan match will be re-arranged for a free date in July.
