Wigan have become the third Super League club to close their training ground following a number of positive Covid-19 tests.

Following the latest round of testing on Monday morning, Warriors’ Robin Park Arena training ground will be closed for 10 days.

Those who tested positive will self-isolate at home for a minimum of 10 days as per Government guidelines and the club say Public Health England has been informed.
Further testing has been planned for February 12 and 17 before a decision will be made by the Rugby Football League’s Multiple Cases Group as to whether the squad can resume training.
On January 21, Leeds announced they would close their facilities for five days as a ‘fire break’ after six players and a member of staff tested positive in the previous 10 days, with those affected having to produce a negative test before their return.
Huddersfield followed suit the same day after reporting several positive cases at their own training facility.
The start of the 2021 Betfred Super League season has been put back two weeks to March 25 due to lockdown restrictions.
