The Warriors had three members of the squad ruled out for last Friday's 18-14 win against Warrington at Headingley after they tested positive for Covid-19.

Adrian Lam will provide an update on his team later today but it is understood due to the government’s guidelines on self-isolation, only one of the sidelined trio may return for their next game – against Catalans this Thursday (kick-off 5.30pm) – if he has recovered.

The remaining two will be forced to sit out the match, and eye a return in the following week’s match against Salford.

On the plus side, props Tony Clubb and George Burgess could come into the frame for Thursday’s behind-closed-doors match.

Clubb has been cleared to return from a neck injury which at one point looked like it may end his season. He hasn’t played since the season resumed.

And fellow front-rower Burgess, a marquee recruit from Souths, has been nursing a hip problem for the last few weeks.
