How important is it to be a Rabbitohs Member? Just ask proud new father, Frank Tonna, who wasted no time signing his newborn daughter Frances up just moments after her birth – in China!
While the birth of his child was an intense family moment, Frank didn’t forget his Rabbitohs Family either, immediately jumping online to sign up baby Frances to her first Rabbitohs Membership – an international Membership – from the hospital.
"It's a very proud moment to become a father and I wanted it to be special,” said Frank of making his newborn daughter a Member.
"I have come to Australia every year for the last three years to watch Souths play in the finals, and boy am I glad I did - the boys did us proud! I was so overjoyed by the victory that I promised to register Frances as a Member as soon as she was born.
“It was a special victory for me because having been born in 1972, I wasn’t alive when Souths won the Premiership that last time in 1971. But I got to see them do it live this time!
“Now Frances is also born after Souths’ last Premiership win, but I am confident that she will be seeing another premiership soon!”
Baby Frances – currently residing in Shanghai, China, with her family – is the latest in a long line of Tonna’s who have made a habit of Standing Above the Rest for the Rabbitohs despite her tender age, and for father Frank, signing his daughter up was a proud moment.
The proud Rabbitoh and father also encouraged supporters from everywhere to sign up their children.
"I would encourage other Members with newborns to go ahead and register their children as Members,” said Frank.
“It's a proud moment to be a father and to contribute to the growth of the Rabbitoh's Family.”
The Rabbitohs Family would like to congratulate the Tonna’s on the arrival of Frances and welcome her to our growing family.
