That’s dedication! Mitchell Moses SKIP the birth of his first child to play in Parramatta’s crucial preliminary final with North Queensland
- Parramatta star Mitchell Moses missed the birth of his child to play in the NRL
- The Eels traveled to Townsville to play their preliminary final on Friday
- It meant he missed the birth of his daughter with partner Bri in Sydney
Mitchell Moses’ desire to end Parramatta’s 36-year wait for a premiership cannot be questioned after the Eels star missed the birth of his first child to play against the Cowboys.
Halfback Bri’s partner gave birth to a baby girl, but Moses made the huge sacrifice to stay in Townsville for the game.
Fox League’s Yvonne Sampson said: “It is a huge decision for any player to miss the birth of your first child or to play in the biggest game of your career.”
Cooper Cronk said it was “the most important day of Mitch’s life, he makes football and family come together in one day.
“Now there’s the added pressure of having his first baby in the world today. If he can’t do it today, he probably never will.’
