Interestingly the city of hull has very low levels of covid so i think the chances of the players catching it there will have been very low.

However if we look at Kirklees and Bradford things are pretty bad

https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/cases?a ... e=Bradford

With regard to Wakefield and Leeds its less so, but still higher than Hull

https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/cases?a ... =Wakefield

Greater Manchester as a whole is bad at the moment with Oldham being very bad

https://coronavirus.data.gov.uk/cases?a ... ame=Oldham

So my suspicion is one or more of the lads had a night out in west yorkshire and brought something back with them to the club.

Would be interesting to know if the infected players are from outside the Hull area.


It's almost irrelevant where the players are living.
How they are behaving socially is of far more importance here.

If players are still out on the lash, the chances of infection seem massively higher than if they are in some kind of "bubble".
However, as others have said, footballers weren't exactly keeping away from the rest of the world but, if there is to be any chance of the season getting to the end, clubs and players are going to have to impose some very tight restrictions (assuming that they haven't already).
Remember, it only takes one or two to go "rogue" and the whole job will be screwed.

First thought is hope all recover. Then hope Salford arent similarly affected. Entirely possible FC may just have detected it quicker? Because we are seeing football and cricket players breaking rules it can lead to presumption similar has happened here. I'd wait for the facts but work on the principle we are all in this together and hope it's just an unfortunate circumstance the virus got in their bubble/s.

Yep nice one Hull. Can we not throw them out the competition and have an even number of teams again?

Total speculation and likely trying to cause racial disharmony on a RL forum :BEAT: :BEAT: . IGNORE.

It is not where the players live, it is what they do and who they meet. They need to be isolated throughout.

Whos to say a hull player picked it up at Tesco when he was doing his weekly shop and unwittingly spread it?

Think its a bit harsh to get the pick forks out just yet

How do we know it started from a Hull player? The only way that can be guaranteed for sure is if Salford tests come back negative, which shows that Hull players were mingling with non-players socially on Sunday night after the game and before the went to the training ground on the Monday.

Hull has one of the lowest infection rates in the UK. Salford are based in one of the largest areas for infection in the UK with local lockdowns in place close to them. Maybe we have detected it because our testing was Monday and Salford's was Tuesday? Perhaps it was Ryan Lannon who had it first, and passed it when he gave Josh Griffin a facial across his nose and mouth during the match, and Griffin gave it o Jordan Johnstone and Josh Bowden on Sunday night?

All hypothetical's, and what if's. End of the day, we don't know where it came from, who had it first and the potential effect it can have on the season and the sport. All I know is that I wish the players involved a speedy recovery and they get back fit soon

Good men and women have died, sometimes struggling and dying in pain and solitude due to this plague from Asia, god knows I don’t want to play the forum police, but some posters need to evaluate their contributions on this serious matter.

According to Jenna Brooks on Twitter, all Salford players' tests came back negative. However, 11 of the players now need to self isolate for 14 days after coming into contact with the infected Hull players. As previously said, we don't know where/how the Hull players have caught the virus, it could easily have been brought home by a player's wife then transmitted at training so stupid and naive put the blame on the Hull players directly.

If the procedures under which SL has restarted allow players (and other members of their households, to go out shopping, and seemingly to pubs judging by posts on SM, then they really aren't fit for purpose.
