NRL still hasn't heard anything about Hunt

11:34 am on 11 June 2009

The National Rugby League still haven't received any word on Karmichael Hunt's swine flu test and is still unable to determine whether Friday night's Broncos-Bulldogs clash will go ahead.

The entire Brisbane Broncos squad and club staff have been placed into quarantine, awaiting test results to determine if Hunt has the virus.

Queensland Health has told the club there is a strong possibility Hunt has it as he has already tested positive for influenza A.

If Hunt is confirmed to have contracted swine flu, the entire Broncos squad could be forced into a three-day quarantine.

That would mean Friday night's top-of-the-table clash at Lang Park will have to be rescheduled.

It is believed Hunt was exposed to the H1N1 virus whilst in Queensland Origin camp where Maroons prop Ben Hannant tested positive.

Meanwhile the New Zealand Warriors Queensland player Steve Price has been freed from isolation.
