In this week's The Cube: Break the Chain Challenge, Indigenous female rugby league team, The Highlanders Natalie Gala and Courtney Robinson go head to head to secure a quick time and score on the leaderboard.
Hosted by Justin Hodges, Aaron Fa'Aoso, Hannah Hollis, Jodan Perry and Nathan Appo, League Nation Live brings viewers their weekly dose of NRL action with all the news from on and off the field.
