Roy Asotasi was a former South Sydney hero who played for Warrington in 2014 and 2015.
Asotasi made 58 appearances for the Wolves, scoring five tries after an 11-year spell in the NRL with Canterbury and Souths, but it was at the latter where he made the biggest impact.
However, the former Rabbitohs captain could be stripped of the award that is named after him following his participation in Sydney’s controversial ‘freedom’ march last weekend, the World Wide of Sports has reported.
Asotasi didn’t exactly hide from the publicity, posting a photo of himself alongside former Castleford Tigers and Canterbury star Ben Roberts.
But, the Souths club has since received backlash on social media.
This has, in turn, prompted a board meeting for a discussion on whether the Roy Asotasi Members’ Choice Award will be removed from the club legend.
He and Roberts will also incur $1000 fines from NSW Police for participating in the rally.
