Wests Tigers Life Members Dene Halatau and John Skandalis have been announced as 2017 NRL Ambassadors today as part of a group of 46 ambassadors in total.

The Ambassadors will join NRL Clubs and the wider NRL community in supporting numerous community initiatives throughout Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific, all aimed at improving lives and educating communities on positive wellbeing.

Amongst the record 46 Ambassadors are 10 female Ambassadors and 10 Pasifika Ambassadors, with 15 of the 46 Ambassadors taking on official Ambassador duties for the first time in 2017.

NRL General Manager of Community, Ellen Beale was delighted to welcome many of the Ambassadors to an induction at Rugby League Central this week.

"Rugby League is fortunate to have many within our playing groups and our communities who go above and beyond to help improve the lives of others," Ms Beale said.

"Our Ambassadors are an invaluable extension of our many community programs, including supporting positive mental wellbeing, eradicating domestic violence and ensuring safe and supportive learning environments for students.

"I look forward to working alongside all of our Ambassadors as we continue to use Rugby League's voice to actively contribute to making our communities more inclusive."

The NRL's Community programs are aligned to three key pillars: Health, Respect and Learn.

Programs are supported by expert partners, who enable and guide decisions aimed at providing positive experiences and outcomes.
