Toulouse home game cancelled

Toulouse’s home game with Oldham this weekend has been postponed following the UK Government’s latest review of travel guidelines.

With France remaining on the amber list, a 10-day quarantine period is required for all on return to the UK.

The game against Newcastle, due to be played last month, has now officially been cancelled with no room to fit it in the calendar, with the Oldham game likely to follow suit.

Two previous Toulouse home games – against Widnes and Swinton – were played at Heywood Road in Sale, as neither of those two clubs were scheduled to host the French side in this season’s fixture list.

A statement said: “With no available match slot for a rearrangement between then and the end of the regular season in September, it has not been possible to find an alternative date for the game.

The RFL will await the next Government update in July before decisions are made about the four remaining home fixtures scheduled for Toulouse between July 24 and September 11.”

Toulouse have won all seven of their Championship games this season, plus an eighth that was awarded to them when full-time side London opted not to travel to France earlier in the season.

Although a minimum number of 16 games is required to qualify for the play-offs, the RFL have previously stated that any games postponed due to quarantine restrictions won’t be counted against clubs.
