Super League club Hull FC.

The Super League season has been thrown into chaos after eight Hull FC players and coaching staff tested positive to COVID-19.

Hull and Salford Red Devils have cancelled scheduled training sessions after five Hull FC players involved in last Sunday's match between the teams tested positive.

In addition, a sixth Hull FC player who was not in their matchday 17 has tested positive, while a seventh player, who did play is having a re-test after an inconclusive result.

Two members of Hull's coaching staff have also tested positive.

All seven Hull FC players and staff are now required to quarantine for 10 days - until August 21 – in line with national guidance.

Public Health England, the Hull FC players and staff, and the Salford Red Devils club were informed of the situation on Tuesday night [Wednesday AEST].

Salford's routine weekly test results have not yet been received.

However, the RFL is now analysing Sunday's match to determine how many players from each team will also be required to self-isolate under the test and trace procedures that have been agreed with Public Health England.

Announcements on the impact on upcoming Super League and Challenge Cup fixtures over the next two weekends will be made as soon as possible.
