Positive Covid tests mean the postponement of this Sunday’s scheduled fixture between Sheffield Eagles and York City Knights.
Under the RFL’s Covid-19 protocols, a team can apply to postpone a match if seven or more senior players are unavailable as a result of Covid-19 – either through positive tests or as close contacts. Unfortunately, Sheffield Eagles have exceeded this threshold.
The postponed fixture will be added to the list for possible rearrangement, although the league table is determined by win points percentage to allow for the possibility of not all fixtures being fulfilled. Everyone at the Knights shares the inevitable disappointment at this fixture being postponed and we were looking forward to your superb away support. However, attention will now turn to our next home match against Widnes Vikings on Sunday 8th August (3pm KO) where we will be looking to build on last weekend's 46-10 victory over Swinton Lions. #WeAreYork⚔️
