Canterbury Bulldgogs’ players have been told to stay away from the club’s training base on Friday due to Terry Lamb’s breach of COVID-19 protocols.
The Canterbury great will be tested for coronavirus after breaking strict biosecurity guidelines at a Bulldogs training session on Thursday.
The NRL’s integrity unit will also look into the the incident after Lamb, who is not one of 50 players and staff cleared to attend training, was filmed shaking hands with players.
The Bulldogs have been banned from training until Lamb’s test results are returned, likely today.
“On the advice of biosecurity experts, Terry Lamb will be tested for COVID-19. The Bulldogs will not train until the test results return tomorrow,” an NRL spokesperson said.
The Bulldogs later apologised for the incident.
Media were invited to film a portion of the training session at Belmore Oval where Lamb was captured breaking the strict guidelines imposed on all NRL clubs since March 4.
Lamb is an ambassador for the club but is not cleared to attend training and games.
Everyone on the list is required to self-isolate at home under strict guidelines as approved by state governments to allow the NRL to resume their competition on May 28.
Under the guidelines there is to be no contact with anyone outside of the “bubble” aside from people in their homes, which have been pre-approved by the NRL.
No one from outside the bubble, including media and other club staff, are allowed inside “clean” zones at games and training sessions.
It is the first serious breach of the guidelines since training recommenced a month ago.the new
