NRL INDIGENOUS ROUND
Round 22 marks the NRL's Indigenous Round which supports and acknowledges the huge contribution of Indigenous communities to rugby league. Fans are invited to celebrate and participate in Indigenous culture throughout the Round while taking time to consider some significant societal change in Australia.
At Sunday's triple header game, Windale Public School will perform an Awabakal and English version of the national anthem. The Millabah Dancers will also perform in the lead up to the NRL match.
Also this weekend, the zero on the 40-metre line at each ground will be replaced by the 'RECOGNISE' symbol that seeks to institute constitutional recognition for Australia's first peoples, both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
