Rugby League Players and Their Wives Speak to Mormon Youth

Three Mormon professional rugby league players ― Will Hopoate, Lagi Setu and Sam Perrett ― spoke to young members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Sydney on Sunday evening [6 July 2014].

The three men, alongside Setu and Perrett’s wives, Adele and Jemma, shared their experiences as Latter-day Saints involved in Australia’s National Rugby League. 

“As we seek to put the Lord first in our lives, all other aspects of our lives begin to flourish,” Will Hopoate told the youth. He also encouraged the teens to “get all the education they can get.”
