Fears of more swine flu positives after Hunt confirmed with virus

6:48 pm on 11 June 2009

The National Rugby League says tomorrow's match between the Broncos and the Bulldogs will go ahead as scheduled in Brisbane, despite the home side's fullback Karmichael Hunt testing positive to swine flu.

After consultation with the Queensland and New South Wales health authorities, the NRL decided to proceed with the game.

But less than an hour later another Brisbane player, the winger Antonio Winterstein, was told to go to hospital for tests - raising the question whether other players involved in Friday night's game may have swine flu.
