Strange. It doesn't show those two heroic tackles by Keiran Dixon on Gareth Gale!

A load of positive cases at Fev threatening the game, allegedly. Surely clubs will just loan players for a week to get the game completed?

Why? I think a lot of clubs will be using the week off to rest and repair and kick on for the second half of the season

Theissuesat Fev has been injuries so far, but theyve managed as they have a large decent squad

To get the game completed so that the schedule isnt messed around with and that both clubs travelling parties get the game they were promised. Carter at Wakefield mentioned integrity, this would be a case of that.

Clubs have fringe players. Saints sent two to Salford last week. I dare say we have another couple who could theoretically play this weekend and Im sure other top clubs are probably in the same boat.

Clubs are selfish though.

They'd need to break the competition rules to do that. I'm not saying there isn't a precedent - the Championship Shield final between Fev and Leigh is a recent example - but loanees Will Dagger for Fev and Corey Johnson for York are currently not allowed to play because they were signed after the deadline.

Theyve relaxed the 21 man squad rules, they need to relax others to ensure it goes ahead really.

So are fans.

Not that they'd want any from London but I'd not want any of our players being loaned so Featherstone can have a go at winning a trophy.

Yep. With Fevs disregard for Covid regulations against Bately. Its hardly surprising theyve ended up like this. I doubt anybody will be helping them out

If the 1895 game is called off, will the tickets still allow access into the stadium?

Alternatively will the cup be awarded to Toulouse 24-0

Featherstone CEO Martin Vickers has confirmed that coach James Webster is one of the Featherstone contingent to have tested positive.

I can't see this game going, ahead.

I feel very sorry for everyone involved.

As long as it's not 24-0. Too many cancellations this year already.

I said it somewhat tongue in cheek, but now looks reality. Really sorry for all affected.

It takes wisdom to know when a discussion has run its course.

It takes reasonableness to end thatdiscussion.

If the game was being played tonight FEV could field a team but they have to follow RFL protocol and get everybody retested tonight beforethey can list a squad for saturday andFev have not trained for the last 10 days barring the Captain's run so those at the club who have recently tested positive won't have had much contact with the rest of the squad.

Yes, but you can apply for a refund and not use your tickets if you no longer wish to go. As per the RFL a few hours ago.
