Six Hull FC players have tested positive for coronavirus, the Betfred Super League club have announced.

The news has led to the sudden cancellation of their  scheduled training session on Wednesday, in addition to the cancellation of Salford.

The two teams played each other on Sunday in  the Super League, the Red Devils winning 54-18 at Emerald Headingley Stadium.

The five Hull FC players who were involved in the match have since recorded a positive Covid-19 test while a sixth, who was not in their matchday 17, has also tested positive.

Another  player is due to have another test after an inconclusive result and all those who tested positive are now required to quarantine for 10 days until August 21 in line with national guidance.

Two members of Hull’s coaching staff have also tested positive, Public Health England announced on Tuesday evening.

A sixth player who was not in their matchday 17 – while a sixth member of Sunday’s 17 is having a retest after an inconclusive result.

All those that test positive are now required to quarantine for 10 days – until August 21, according to the national guidance.

The revelation will raise concern for other football teams, especially given the speculation that they had  not been observing social distancing as strictly as expected.
