YORK City Knights' Betfred Championship trip to Toulouse Olympique next week has been cancelled.

Toulouse have yet to play any matches at their home ground, the Stade Ernest-Wallon, in 2021 amid the coronavirus pandemic.

France remains on the UK's amber list, meaning that anyone not yet fully vaccinated must isolate for at least five days upon their return.

In line with the RFL Board’s previous decision, part time teams are therefore not required to play in France due to the impact on their day jobs.

That decision only applies to regular season matches, with Toulouse still to play at home for the play-offs.

Neither Toulouse nor York City Knights will be penalised for the fixture cancellation due to the circumstances beyond their control.

No decision has yet been announced on York's postponed game at Sheffield Eagles.
