Bulldogs prop Aiden Tolman will undergo a COVID 19 test after a staff member at the primary school attended by one of Tolman’s children tested positive to COVID 19.
The Tolman family were yesterday informed of this situation and as such NSW Health have advised all families from the school to undertake self isolation.
The result of this is that Aiden will now be required to get tested in line with biosecurity protocols.
All Bulldogs players and staff within the bubble will also be tested.
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill said the decision to postpone the game was the right one:
“Once we found out about Aiden’s situation we immediately informed the NRL and have been working with them overnight which ultimately led to the decision to postpone the game until tomorrow.
This Is an unprecedented situation, but we will make sure that we take all the necessary precautions required and get everyone within our bubble tested and cleared over the next 24 hours.”
To our invited Members, Corporate Partners & Guests, we will be in contact with you shortly with more detail on today's postponement.
