In some devastating news for the Queensland State of Origin team, there are fears the entire playing group has been struck down by the coronavirus.

Just hours out from the series opener in Adelaide, the whole gameday 17 is undergoing testing after fears they have contracted the deadly virus.

That’s according to Wayne Bennett, who informed the media in a typically frosty press conference.

The news comes in traditional Queensland fashion, as the coach plays games with the media and the NSW team.

It’s not known whether the players will be able to play, or whether Queensland will field it’s remaining standby players and whoever else they can rustle up from the Adelaide area.

Previously there had been injury fears for Xavier Coates, Brenko Lee, and Kurt Capewell, but that has now been overshadowed by the horrifying cluster.

Wayne refused to let the media know what the plan would be, and whether the game would go ahead.

More to come.
