Hep B diagnosis sparks screening push

Super League clubs are being advised to screen their players for hepatitis B after an unnamed player was diagnosed with the virus.

All 14 clubs held meetings with their senior squads on Wednesday after being informed of the news by the Rugby Football League, who said the screening is a precaution against possible transmission of the virus.

The RFL say the player, who is not being named due to medical confidentiality, has not played or trained since his diagnosis and is being provided with expert medical treatment and support.
