Hoppa rescues car crash victims on way to jail By Joey Riordan Controversial former rugby league star John Hopoate has assisted a couple on their way to visit their child in jail on Sunday. While also on his way to the jail to visit his son Jamil Hopoate, who was last year jailed for drunken assault, John stopped to help the stricken pair after they crashed their car. The 41-year-old later shared the moment on his Facebook page. "On my way to visit my son in gaol today. I picked up this very lucky couple who survived this crash," Hopoate wrote. "I checked if they were ok and all they said was can you please take us to the gaol to visit our (son) cause we have food for him. "What GREAT parents, even thou they were in trouble all they could think about was getting food for their son in Gaol." Hopoate's other son is Will Hopoate, who currently plays for the Blues. Jamil was contracted with the Manly Sea Eagles up until his charge for a violent incident in Manly last year. ----------------------------------- You have to hand it to Hoppa - he is the full spectrum of a personality - angel to demon Jamil must have been moved to Oberon - hope that he is finding his God and comes out a more balanced man.
