Australia’s most prestigious pro-rugby league is combating the coronavirus pandemic … by appointing a special BALL WASHER to keep things clean on the field.
The problem??? The rest of the players are smothering each other!!
It all went down Thursday in Sydney — where the North Queensland Cowboys took on the Canterbury Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.
Officials in Australia have outlawed public gatherings of more than 500 people — so the National Rugby League (NRL) decided to push forward with games … with limited people in attendance.
In total, there were 241 people at the stadium (including the players) so the game was allowed to take place.
Still, a disturbing sight to see the players sweating, breathing and bleeding on each other with the global COVID-19 pandemic in full swing.
After the game, the players were seen hugging family members in the stands — another big NO-NO according to some health experts.
It’s much different in America, where almost every major sports organization is shut down — including the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB and more.
