Fans of the greatest game of all have today made a desperate plea to an icon.

Followers of the game of Rugby League have begged Ray ‘Rabbits’ Warren to come out of retirement, even just to call one Sydney Roosters game in 2025.

The calls come after the financial fraudsters based in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs managed to sign Waratahs winger Mark Nawaqanitawase.

The young flier has agreed to head next door to the Chooks on a two year deal, in what comes as a real blow to the toffs at Rugby Australia who have had to take a break from gloating about poaching Joseph Sua’ali’i.

The defection has hurt Rugby Australia, with Marky Mark being probably the only ‘bright spot’ in the year that was 2023.

It’s believed he will play out his contract next year at the Waratahs and Wallabies.

While the ten people who make up the combined fan bases of both clubs will have to wait till 2025 to see the young studs strut their stuff for their new teams, neutral fans have begged Rabs to come out of retirement to have a run at the young man’s Fijian last name.

Pronounced NUH-WANG-GAH-KNEE-TAH-WAHZAY, the multi-syllable name has proven somewhat of a tongue twister for Rugby toffs raised on Smiths, Waughs and Jones’s.

But for fans of Rugby League, they’d love to hear one of the icons of their game have a run at it.

“Please Rabs,” said one local fan.

“Even just for a promo.”

“Make it happen.”

More to come.
