Thursday’s Betfred Super League match between Warrington Wolves and Catalans Dragons has been postponed after positive Covid-19 tests in the French team’s camp.
The match at the Halliwell Jones Stadium was due to be shown live on Sky Sports as part of Super League’s Rivals Round.
However, within the last 24 hours, four members of the Dragons essential staff have tested positive for Covid-19, with three of the positive tests coming on Thursday morning shortly before the squad were due to fly to England.

Under the RFL’s Multiple Cases Framework, Super League leaders Catalans will now await further instruction from the Multiple Cases Group.
Consideration will be given to rearrangement, although the Super League table will again be determined by win points percentage to allow for the possibility of not all fixtures being fulfilled.
Leeds Rhinos’ non-televised home game with Huddersfield Giants is now the only fixture in the competition being played on Thursday night.
