He's considered one of the hottest properties in rugby league, but Manly star Will Hopoate is turning his back on the game.

Hopate will quit at the end of this season to embark on a Mormon mission for the next two years.

He is set to turn down a lucrative new deal to fulfil his religious duties and was being aggressively chased by a number of clubs.
