Women’s derby postponed

Sunday’s Betfred Women’s Super League fixture between St Helens and Wigan Warriors has been postponed.

One of the St Helens players tested positive for Covid-19 on Sunday – within 48 hours of the club’s victory over York City Knights in the Betfred Women’s Challenge Cup Final.

Test and Trace analysis of the match and the celebrations that followed has required more than five St Helens players to self-isolate for ten days as close contacts, meaning this Sunday’s match – scheduled to be played at Warrington’s Victoria Park – will be postponed under the Covid-19 protocols applying across all RFL competitions.

The Betfred Women’s Super League table is to be determined on win points percentage – but it is hoped the St Helens v Wigan game will be rearranged for a free date in July.
