Asotasi and Merritt Have Rabbitohs Blessed by the Dalai Lama

Rabbitohs senior players Roy Asotasi and Nathan Merritt had the opportunity to meet the visiting Dalai Lama in Sydney today, with the spiritual leader giving a blessing to the South Sydney Rabbitohs.


His Holiness met Asotasi and Merritt at a media conference this morning, along with proud Rabbitohs Member and media personality Mikey Robbins, fashion designer Jenny Kee and entertainer Kamahl.


His Holiness was presented with a Rabbitohs cap which he wore or held throughout the whole event, and a Rabbitohs hoodie which he happily displayed whilst having photos taken with the Rabbitohs players.


When asked by a journalist if he could help the Rabbitohs win their 21st premiership, thus ending a 42-year drought, His Holiness decided that it was a great reason to offer the South Sydney Rabbitohs a blessing.
