The NRL Indigenous Round aims to highlight significant social issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Indigenous Round provides an opportunity for the Game to recognise and celebrate the unique relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and Rugby League.
Key to this stance is the Game's partnership with RECOGNISE which aims to recognise Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia's constitution and ensure there's no place for racial discrimination in it.
Stay tuned for information on Indigenous Round in 2017 when the draw is released.
