While we might see other players contemplating, running through tactics, or motivating themselves before matches, Hannant is more likely to be doing a short prayer.
The expanding Morman group in the NRL, including Folau, Krisnan Inu, and Fraser Anderson, made Hannant happy, but at the same time, Hannant values religious freedom and tolerance.
