The Canterbury Bulldogs' players and staff have been given the all-clear after undergoing coronavirus tests.

The Bulldogs' NRL clash with the Sydney Roosters was postponed from Sunday to Monday after a teacher at a school attended by one of prop Aiden Tolman's children tested positive for COVID-19.

Players and staff underwent tests, with Tolman among those testing negative, although the 31-year-old will not face the Roosters.
