Geography is my guess. There's been plenty of cases in Scottish football.

I'd just put it down to a lack of professionalism from those involved. The NRL, football have strict bubbles set up. The player know where they are allowed to go and they largely comply. Where they don't it's a scandal as we've seen.

In Super League, I don't think there are any strict measure in place. I've seen Warrington players at the Tesco garage near me with no mask on and I've seen a Super League player I won't mention being thrown out of a pub blind drunk. Players from different clubs are visiting each other and playing golf together. All permitted under the national rules, but they should hardly be surprised if they're hit with a positive test given all the people they are in contact with will have families and kids in school etc.

Really? There's loads of cases every week in football. RL players can't even celebrate trys. In football the whole team gets into a group hug everytime they score..

So how come we haven't seen an outcome like the one at Sale RU?

Combination of geography and lack of professionalism in certain cases I'm guessing.

I could be wrong but certain clubs seem to have more cases than others. Again geography, but for example saints are in a high risk area and I don't remember them having hardly any issues, and you'd expect their professionalism to be second to none.
