The NRL, through its Reconciliation Action Plan, is committed to greater promotion and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within the Game.
A major example of this commitment in action is the NRL Indigenous Round.
NRL Indigenous Round, taking place in Round 11 (May 23 - 26), aims to highlight significant social issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It is also an opportunity for the game to cement our commitment to the Indigenous community and celebrate the unique relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and rugby league.
This year's Indigenous Round aligns with the commencement of National Reconciliation Week (27 May - 3 June). National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia. The 2019 National Reconciliation Week theme is: "Grounded in Truth. Walk Together with Courage".
