Canterbury great Terry Lamb will be tested for coronavirus after breaking strict biosecurity guidelines at a Bulldogs training session on Thursday.

The NRL's integrity unit will also look into the the incident on Friday after Lamb, who is not one of 50 club staff cleared to attend training, was filmed shaking hands with players.

The Bulldogs have been banned from training until Lamb's test results are returned, hopefully on Friday.

“On the advice of biosecurity experts, Terry Lamb will be tested for COVID-19. The Bulldogs will not train until the test results return tomorrow,” an NRL spokesperson told AAP.

The Bulldogs later apologised for the incident.

Media were invited to film a portion of the training session at Belmore Oval where Lamb was captured breaking the strict guidelines imposed on all NRL clubs since March 4.

Lamb is an ambassador for the club but is not on a list of 50 players and staff who are cleared to attend training and games.

Everyone on the list is required to self-isolate at home under strict guidelines as approved by state governments to allow the NRL to resume their competition on May 28.

Under the guidelines there is to be no contact with anyone outside of the "bubble" aside from people in their homes, which have been pre-approved by the NRL.

No one from outside the bubble, including media and other club staff, are allowed inside "clean" zones at games and training sessions.

It is the first serious breach of the guidelines since training recommenced a month ago.

The Bulldogs, who are yet to post a win this season, are due to face St George Illawarra at Bankwest Stadium on Monday.

Foran hoping to repay the faith

Foran has revealed that a desire to repay Canterbury for his horror injury run drove his latest comeback from a shoulder reconstruction.

Foran will make a timely return for the winless Bulldogs in Monday's annual Queen's Birthday clash.

It will be Foran's first match since dislocating his shoulder just minutes into his return to the international arena with New Zealand last year.

The injury came after a syndesmosis problem ruled him out of half his 2019 campaign, which followed a season decimated by a toe issue.

The Dragons match marks the 200th game of Foran's career.

“I've been through a few difficult periods in my career and each and every time I've built more and more resilience through those periods,” Foran said on Thursday.

“With this latest one, it was about wanting to get back and give back to the Dogs.

“I feel really bad that I've had this horrible injury run over the last few years. It's something that's weighed heavily on mind, (but) it's been out of my control.”
