Sharks star Shaun Johnson has learned on live TV his family will have to move to Queensland for the foreseeable future as a result of the NRL’s Covid-19 mass relocation.
The playmaker on Sunday night was told of the NRL’s decision to move 12 NSW-based teams to Queensland as a result of Sydney’s precarious spike in Covid-19 recorded cases.
Following Cronulla’s 20-12 win over the Warriors, Johnson appeared shattered about the prospect of uprooting his family to Queensland — or be separated from his wife Kayla and baby daughter Millah Malvina for an extended period of time.
His case is just one of many in the NRL’s Covid chaos.
