NRL snares rising rugby star after Mormon mission

The Western Force Super Rugby franchise have snared former budding NRL star Jordan Rapana on his return from a two-year Mormon mission in Britain.

The move comes as NSW Origin and Manly NRL star Will Hopoate prepares to leave on his own Mormon mission for two years at the end of the NRL season.
