Sexy lap dance to seal this proposal
IT’S the premiership proposal captured on national television, sealed with a dressing room lap dance but that almost ended with a sore head.
Not for Penrith winger Brian To’o, who was sporting stitches above his right eye on Monday morning, but his fiancee Moesha, who was almost the casualty of a sexy dance move gone wrong.
“I gave her a little lap dance, the boys were hyping me up to do it and the boys set me up,” To’o said with a smile.
“I ended up dancing, giving her a little lap dance for around 30 seconds until I went overboard and side kicked her in the head by accident.”
To’o and his partner Moesha Crichton-Ropati have captured the hearts of the country after the NSW Blues winger dropped to one knee following Penrith’s grand final victory over South Sydney on Sunday night.
It was an emotional night for Moesha even before a single ball was kicked or passed in Sunday’s grand final.
“When the boys came out, I was crying because I was so emotional they made the grand final, they deserved to be there last night,” she said.
“For them to get the win was even better and to get proposed to last night, the first thing that came into my head was ‘did you ask my parents?’”
Not only had To’o asked Moesha’s parents for their permission, the 23-year old revealed he was going to pop the question even if his side had lost the Brisbane decider.
“Win or lose, I was still going to propose,” To’o said.
“I was actually planning (to do it) in Origin but obviously due to Covid and stuff, that didn’t happen.”
So with the title secured, To’o gathered his teammates for some moral support and found Moesha in the crowd.
Then, in front of 39,000 people and millions more watching at home, To’o popped the question.
“I’m really happy that she got a ring and I got a ring as well,” To’o said.
“I just told her she is the best thing that has ever happened to me … got down on one knee and asked her to make me the happiest man and ‘will you marry me?’”
It’s not the first time the couple have stolen the show in grand final week. To’o and his fiancee lit up the Dally M red carpet, in particular Moesha, who wore a traditional Polynesian Tapa dress to the ceremony to represent the couple’s Samoan heritage.
“I always said to myself if Brian was ever invited to the Dally Ms, I would want to go traditional,” she said.
“I’m proud to be a brown person in a white community and to represent our culture on national television makes me proud. Half of it was Tongan Tapa wear and the bottom was Samoan Tapa wear. Brian has Tongan nieces and nephews, so it was representing both cultures.”
