THE NRL’s season from hell stood on the brink of fresh chaos last night after Maroons prop Ben Hannant was diagnosed with swine flu, while at least one NSW staff member is suspected to be carrying the H1N1 influenza 09 virus.

In a development that could send the premiership into a quarantine quagmire, Hannant has been ordered into isolation with his family on the Gold Coast.

It’s feared he contracted swine flu in Melbourne during last week’s Origin I campaign, placing a cloud over the game’s 34 elite players.

Those concerns will deepen further today if tests on NSW physio Tony Ayoub confirm the Blues staffer also has the virus.

Ayoub fell ill on Friday night, sending his club side the Bulldogs – where Hannant also plays – into a mild panic.
