Players breaching C-19 protocols (Merged Threads)

It's interesting that only 11 Salford player's have been asked to isolate after close contact with HullFC player's on review. Did the other 6 make no tackles?

There were certainly more than 6 Hull players who made no tackles

This is why they should have gone for a UK only 9 round mini season , they could have potentially ridden over something like this 

Don't see the point of the lower tier comp even being attempted

You've lost me there. How would a UK club only competition have avoided the current situation?

Last time I checked Hull was still in the UK?

Adam Pearson is saying that the player caught the virus whilst in hospital visiting his baby not that he caught it from the baby.

Given that Hull FC knew the player had been in a hospital environment they should have had him stay away for a week. In that respect they are at fault.

Easy with hindsight but it's a learning point. I also feel that we probably need twice weekly testing.

Let's say they have to quarantine both sides for 2 weeks because of this , they just won't be able to fit it all in , with a tighter comp they could have isolated squads better

This is a bit of a disaster. The NRL provided the blueprint which was either ignored or wasn't possible. In any case, this throws the season into doubt now. Could this be an isolated incident and not happen again? The scenario seems unfortunate if true but unless all staff involved are kept in a bubble this is likely to happen again.

This was always likely given the attitude to this threat in general in the UK and the desperation to get things back to normal when the problem has nowhere near been eradicated.

And if one or more of the other teams have players testing positive in the next week or two? Should they have, for example, excluded all with a WA postcode as well as Catalans?

It’s like the government guidelines: If something isn’t working they change them. The government may take a look into this as obviously what’s in place is just too lenient.

I thought it was the trip to the hospital rather than the baby that was the source.

Preston had a mixed community but the spike in cases is also linked to the age demographic in equal numbers to generational households.The fault could be the lack of thought from the younger members of the family transmitting to older people.

Back to the rugby, Hull will have to investigate their protocols that allowed transmission from player to Physio to other players.

Where does this leave the fixtures as both Salford and Hull could miss 2 weeks of games especially if no training for 14 days

 

Salford will only miss one game, as the weekend of the 22nd is given over to the Challenge Cup preliminary round thing. Salford's next game after the (now postponed) Catalans game is on the 29th. If the 14 day self-isolation is properly observed, this will mean they only have three days to train for that game. Fortunately, it's against Leeds, a team that looks like it's only trained for three days over the past five months.

They should only include teams which are based in towns which aren’t transport hubs. Ones that don’t have a train station for example

If it's only flu, why is the State of Victoria in lock down.  Why did 6 AFL clubs move to Queensland?

And it's not only over 65s.  Pearson points out he is diabetic.

The spikes we are having are in part because young people are thick and are selfish and care less.

Various Scottish footballers were named.   Not least loudly named by Sturgeon.  So I don't see Pearson worrying.

Were they? In the daily press conferences she absolutely didn't name anyone, I had to go to Twitter to see who they were. 

I'm pretty sure Sturgeon didn't put these names in the public domain, she was very wary of what she was saying.

Slap on the wrist. The worrying thing he knew about it.

Of course she didn't, she'll be well aware of the rules. No one who's tested positive after the Aberdeen incident  has been named as doing so in the UK media. The players who visited a bar might have been named after issuing an apology but all we know from the media is that 2 players have since tested positive. 

A further aspect of Pearson's comments is that an infant is involved, so as well as breaking medical confidentiality could easily open a new can of worms with child protection rules.

For all you know he obtained the player's permission to make public his theory beforehand.  Our coach mentioned Matty Lees after the event also, even though Matty tested negative (he reported a sore throat prior to our first match and so was left at home and sent for a Covid test).  Personally I'm all for naming and shaming a player if he has gone for a night out on the booze because not only are they risking the lives of others they may not even know but they are also putting our sport in jeopardy.  However, if the virus has been picked up despite the person's best efforts then that is another matter entirely, although the player in Hull's case really shouldn't have attended his physio session when he was experiencing symptoms, assuming that is how the outbreak occurred.

What do you need a train for when you can build a guided busway anyhow?
