Hazem El Masri fasts through finals

The NRL's decision not to switch this weekend's Bulldogs-Eels blockbuster to Sunday afternoon is a godsend for Hazem El Masri.
Had officials heeded calls from the purists, El Masri would have been forced to survive 80 minutes of pulsating finals football without a single drop of water, let alone an orange at half time.
A devout Muslim, the winger will commence fasting for Ramadan tomorrow morning.
In accordance with the annual Islamic ritual, he and fellow adherents are not permitted to eat or drink between dawn and dusk.
El Masri will have to complete this week's remaining day-time training sessions without sustenance but will be able to drink water during Saturday night's clash. Given Ramadan has fallen over summer for most of his career, it's the first time he has faced fasting in a finals series.
Above is him,his wife and kids
