Wigan Warriors cleared to make trip to France to play Catalans Dragons

Wigan Warriors have been cleared to make a trip to France this weekend to play Catalans Dragons following their latest round of testing for Covid-19.

Wigan’s routine weekly testing was brought forward following the positive test received by a member of their squad who was showing symptoms over the weekend and who is now self-isolating.

Those results have all come back negative, meaning that Wigan will travel to Perpignan on Saturday morning on a charter flight, under conditions approved by the British and French authorities, for the first Super League fixture in France since the resumption of the season last month.

It will also be the first Super League match to host a crowd since the resumption, as permitted by French Government regulations.

Hull KR, who played Wigan last Thursday in the game after which the positive test was taken, have also received a full negative set of results from their testing this week. They play St Helens at the Totally Wicked Stadium on Friday.

Dragons were given the all-clear to return to training this week after the latest round of their testing showed no positive Covid-19 tests.
