The 23-year-old’s girlfriend broke down in tears, with the cameras capturing the beautiful moment they embraced and kissed.
To’o was inevitably mobbed by his teammates after she said yes.
It was later revealed that To’o had asked Crichton-Ropati’s parents for their permission to pop the question several months earlier…
The Panthers weapon, who was named on the wing in the Dally M team of the year, led the competition in runs, metres gained and post-contact metres this season…

Over four decades ago I said these words to my wife:
“I, _______ take you, ________ to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold, from this day forward, for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish as long as we both shall live.”

She gave me a second chance and it paid off. Within a couple of years, I was managing the whole store and then several branches.”
