Who knows?! What a mess and only one full round in to the restart. I see on social media some of our players going about their daily life’s visiting restaurants and pubs and that’s fair enough. They seem to be following the government rules but the government rules are about getting the economy going and they won’t protect players from catching the virus. One positive test has a huge knock on effect.

Well it isn't is it. The sport needs to react to this calmly, not with panic and over reaction. This was always likely to happen at some stage - just a shame it's happened this early and to this many players. There will be a quarantine for the affected clubs and those who can play will continue to play.

If you compare this to how the England cricket team are operating and it's chalk and cheese. If the players want to play then they can't carry on like you and I because the situation is completely different. I thought that was kinda obvious by now.

You only need to look on social media to see Wigan players out in Manchester City Centre and then on the VT people were saying Saints players had been out in Liverpool (weird that coz I thought they were perfect), Leeds players out and about and Blake Austin went and celebrated Liverpool’s title win down at Anfield with thousands of others. So basically players from all clubs look to be just cracking on with pretty normal life’s but it’s not normal times and they’ve not got normal jobs. If the players as a collective group want the sport to survive and they want to carry on earning a living through it then even more sacrifices could need to be made than they’ve already had to.

Surely everyone playing at the same stadium opens the door for the virus to run through all clubs?

I am more inclined to think that the spike at Hull FC has more to do with the players like those of Celtic doing something outside the lockdown regulations rather than playing in the game against Salford.

The question is "where they not tested prior to the game and if not, why not"

Why aren't the players living in a hotel somewhere isolated from the general public in a bio secure bubble?
