Api Koroisau, one of the last NRL vaccine holdouts gets jabs



Fewer than 10 NRL players remain unvaccinated just days before the start of the season. NRL superstars Jason Taumalolo and the Storm’s Nelson Asofa-Solomona have received federal government exemptions from COVID19 vaccinations to play in round one. Is that fair?

Why the special treatment for these two players? Is the NRL only bending their COVID19 vaccination rules just to accommodate their biggest stars? The Players Association is also very conspicuous by their silence. The old saying, “Money talks – every man has his price” rings ever so true.
