Medical update on Rabbitohs cult hero who was rush to hospital

Rabbitohs’ cult figure was taken to the hospital and given life support.

Following Nathan Merritt’s emergency hospital admission and life support placement, South Sydney released a statement to the public.

Nathan Merritt, a club legend, is currently hospitalized and in critical condition, according to South Sydney.

The winger for the Rabbitohs is on life support after being rushed to the hospital, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Merritt reportedly passed out while at his aunt’s house in Sydney, where he was visiting. Merritt was discovered unconscious on Friday afternoon and taken to the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Camperdown.

According to the report, Merritt participated in the incident-riddled Koori Knockout competition last weekend on the NSW Central Coast, where Bulldogs star Josh Addo-Carr got into a fight.

Observers at the event allegedly stated that Merritt concussed during one of the games, according to News Corp.

At the yearly rugby league competition, Merritt previously competed for the same Sydney All Blacks squad as Addo-Carr.

One of the most well-liked players the team had ever fielded, the 40-year-old retired in 2014 after a successful career.

In 237 NRL games, the prolific try scorer scored 154 tries.

After breaking Benny Wearing’s 81-year club record for most tries scored, he is among the most renowned members of the organization.

Blake Solly, the Rabbitohs’ chief executive, has made a brief statement to the public.

Every Rabbitoh is currently thinking of Nathan and praying for him, he said.

Merritt was the ninth player in the history of the sport to score 150 tries in total, and he led the league in try scoring for three consecutive seasons.

In addition to playing three games for the Indigenous All-Stars, Merritt made two appearances for the PM’s XIII and scored two tries.

In Game Two of the 2013 State of Origin series, he made his lone appearance for New South Wales.

For the proud club, his retirement in 2014 was a sad occasion.

Merritt was born and raised in Redfern, and he played junior football for Alexandria Rovers in the South Sydney junior league. He established the Nathan Merritt Foundation, which offered assistance and mentoring to Indigenous children in Sydney, by using his retirement announcement.

Merritt is a proud Indigenous man and the proud father of five children: the twins Jade and Jalen are 19 years old, Nakeeya is 15 years old, and Honey and Anthony are 9 years old.

In his announcement of his retirement, Merritt singles out his children and wife Faith.

Playing for South Sydney is something I adore doing.
To watch athletes like Mario Fenech and Craig Coleman run around has been a dream of mine ever since I was a young child, Merritt recalled.

“However, the time has come for me to hang up my hat and move on to the next phase of my career, establishing my Foundation and helping the residents of Redfern and the South Sydney neighborhood.

“I want to thank my amazing wife Faith and my children Jade, Jalen, Nakeeya, Anthony, and Honey; my coaches and team mates from my first game for the Alexandria Rovers to today at the Rabbitohs; all of the staff, sponsors, and board members over the years from both the Rabbitohs and Souths Juniors; and the Members and fans of the Rabbitohs for their support they’ve given me throughout my career.

“I hope I’ve done you proud, and I’ll always think of myself as a Rabbitoh.

“I’m still very much a part of this year’s team, and we still have a lot of work to do this year.
I’m looking forward to being a part of it, as well as to beginning this new phase of my career.
