Castleford’s trip to Leeds hangs in the balance after three of their players tested positive for Covid-19 in their weekly round of coronavirus tests.

A further six members of the Cas squad have been stood down through track-and-trace protocols, meaning the Tigers have just 14 fit players.

Three more players will be reviewed on Thursday before deciding whether the Super League game will go ahead.

The entire Castleford Tigers squad will be tested again on Friday morning.

Several Super League games have already been postponed since the season started in August because of Covid-19 outbreaks in squads.
