Former Warrington Wolves star and NRL legend hospitalised with COVID-19

The rampant nature of COVID-19 and its latest strain, Omicron, seems to have taken the world by surprise.

Millions of people have contracted the virus worldwide, with a number of rugby league stars facing the problem head on.

One of those has been ex-Hull FC forward and NRL star Frank Pritchard who was placed in an induced coma after complications with the virus, but he has since been taken out of the unconscious state and is said to be stable.

There has since been a further revelation that former Warrington Wolves star and NRL legend Andrew Johns has also been hospitalised due to the COVID-19 problem.

The Newcastle Knights legend, who played almost 250 games and registered over 2,000 points for the club, is said to have been on holiday in the Riverina region with his partner and daughter when he tested positive for the virus.

Johns was admitted to Wagga Wagga Base Hospital, before being taken to isolate at a hotel according to The Daily Telegraph.

After isolating following his exit from hospital, the 47-year-old is now back in Sydney.

Johns played just three games for Warrington in 2005, scoring one try, kicking 12 goals and one drop-goal.
