Sydney Roosters boss Trent Robinson falls ill with Covid-19

Sydney Roosters boss Trent Robinson has fallen ill due to Covid-19.

That means he will be forced to miss the Roosters’ clash with Cronulla Sharks at home this weekend.

“I’m feeling fine and am very comfortable with the plans we have in place, and I’ll be back at the club next week,” Robinson said.

The Roosters will remain in Queensland after the Cowboys game given their Round 5 clash is against the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium. Robinson will join the squad once his isolation period is complete.

Robinson is self-isolating and will continue to follow the NSW Public Health Orders.

It comes after Cronulla Sharks boss Craig Fitzgibbon missed his first ever coaching game in the NRL in round one after contracting the virus.

It’s an untimely blow for the Roosters who have had an inconsistent start to the 2022 season. They were stunned by the Newcastle Knights in Round 1, before overcoming a stubborn Manly Sea Eagles side, only to fall foul of their main rivals South Sydney Rabbitohs at the weekend.
