Super League R15 fixture amendment

Posted: Wednesday 7th October 2020 - 10:00 PM

The change has been made following the return of three positive Covid-19 tests in the Castleford Tigers’ camp, with a further six players being stood down as part of track and trace protocols.

Hull FC were not due to play this week – but as with all Super League clubs in that position, they had been asked to remain on stand-by to react in a situation such as this.

The fixture between Hull FC and Leeds Rhinos – initially scheduled for Round 18 – will be classed as a home game for Hull FC.

The Leeds Rhinos v Castleford Tigers fixture will now move to Round 18, full details of which will be released in due course.

Castleford Tigers would like to thank Super League, our fellow Super League clubs and Sky Sports for their assistance at this time. We thank Hull FC for stepping into action to fulfil the fixture like the Tigers did earlier in the season when the Black & Whites had received positive Covid-19 tests, we appreciate them doing the same with less than 24 hours' notice. It's great to see clubs working together to get fixtures fulfilled this season.

Both of Thursday’s matches will be live on Sky Sports.

Amended Round 15 Fixtures – Thursday 8th October

Huddersfield Giants v Salford Red Devils - 5:30pm on Sky Sports

Hull FC v Leeds Rhinos - 7:45pm on Sky Sports
