Recommended Posts

Really sad news coming out of South Sydney Rabbitohs today. South Sydney great Nathan Merritt is fighting for his life after being hospitalised on Friday afternoon. 

Merritt was found unresponsive and was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Camperdown. 

The 40-year-old is on life support and his condition is listed as serious. 

Merritt was one of South Sydney's best and most popular players of the modern era, scoring 146 tries in 218 matches from 2002 to 2014.
