General View during the Vitality Super League match between Surrey Storm and London Pulse at Copper Box Arena, London, England on 26th April 2021.

We can confirm that Leeds Rhinos has returned a positive COVID-19 result.

Due to the possibility of this individual coming into contact with other members of the Leeds Rhinos squad during training this week, all players and staff are now considered to be close contacts and are in isolation as per Government guidance.

The Vitality Netball Superleague is working closely with Leeds Rhinos and all impacted clubs as part of the COVID-19 protocols process that are in place for this season, regarding matches that might be impacted as a result.  We will provide an update as soon as possible.

The health and safety of players, staff and officials is our only priority, and our medical team are working with everyone involved to provide the support and information they need.

Leeds Rhinos were not scheduled to play this weekend as part of the Vitality Netball Superleague fixtures so this does not impact Round 19 games.

Due to the ongoing global pandemic there is an extensive testing programme in operation and strict COVID-19 protocols in place to help protect everyone involved in the delivery of the Vitality Netball Superleague season.

We would like to thank all the Vitality Netball Superleague clubs, players, staff and fans for their ongoing patience and understanding this season.
