23 players forced to isolate from the Gold Coast Titans in another COVID-19 horror story

Rugby League mistake

A staggering 23 players have been forced to isolate from the Gold Coast Titans following an awful outbreak of COVID-19.

Yesterday, nine Gold Coast Titans players had reportedly been hit with the virus, but now 14 more have been forced to isolate in what is the worst outbreak in the NRL so far.

Titans chief executive officer Steve Mitchell was keen to stress that community, staff and playing health was of paramount concern upon a possible return.

“Like many organisations, we have been impacted by the current outbreak, but we are working with the NRL on a safe return to training,” Mitchell said.

“The health of our staff, players and community is a priority and we will be following the NRL’s Apollo protocols to allow our players to safely resume training.

“Once players are cleared they will return under the NRL’s graduated return to play guidelines.”

They aren’t the only team though, with 16 Brisbane Broncos having to isolate following an outbreak, whilst the North Queensland Cowboys are into double figures.

It follows a crackdown by the regions of Australia as the nation attempts to control the Omicron variant of COVID-19, but the decisions haven’t gone done well by a number of NRL stars.
