Sydney Roosters head coach Trent Robinson insisted he was "fine" after being tested for coronavirus.

Robinson, though, was tested for COVID-19 and expects to find out the result later on Monday.

"It's not serious, but I had to do the right thing and get it checked out," he told The Daily Telegraph.

"I went to the doctor this morning to have a test. I'm fine. I should get the result this evening.

"You can't expect everyone else at the club to take all the precautions unless I do it myself."

While there have been more than 248,000 deaths due to coronavirus worldwide, Australia has done well in containing COVID-19.

It has seen more than 6,800 confirmed cases of the virus, including 96 deaths.

The Roosters lost their opening two games of the NRL season, which was suspended in March.
