Wakefield Trinity’s Super League match with Leeds Rhinos on Thursday has been postponed after two players tested positive for coronavirus.

On Wednesday, Wakefield confirmed two of their players came back positive for Covid-19 following the third set of tests in the last week.

The club cancelled training on Wednesday morning, and later announced Thursday’s meeting with Leeds would not go ahead as scheduled.

“The Wakefield squad will have a further set of tests on Friday before a decision is made about their fixture against Hull FC scheduled for next Thursday (September 10),” a Wakefield statement added.

One of the players who tested positive was in action against Warrington Wolves at the weekend, while Wakefield said neither were deemed at risk following their Challenge Cup game against Catalans Dragons on August 22.

After that match three Catalans players, one of whom was not involved, and one member of their backroom staff tested positive for Covid-19, with their match against Leeds on Monday subsequently postponed.
