Wests Tigers and South Sydney launch NRL Indigenous Round

Wests Tigers and South Sydney players have stood together to launch the NRL Indigenous Round in Redfern ahead of this weekend's Round 12 clash at Accor Stadium.

Daine Laurie, Tyrone Peachey and the team's latest recruit, Brent Naden were in attendance alongside Rabbitohs players Cody Walker, Blake Taaffe, Isaiah Tass and Shaquai Mitchell at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence.

Also helping to launch Indigenous Round were NRLW players Quincy Dodd and Taliah Fuimaono, as well as former Indigenous stars Greg Inglis, Timana Tahu and Dean Widders.

Tyrone Peachey spoke warmly about celebrating his culture, "It means a lot and I think the NRL does a really good job every year in promoting Indigenous Round.

It's a chance for all us in the game, players, fans and family to come together and  celebrate and promote more awareness about Indigenous culture."

This year, the NRL Indigenous Round will focus on creating a space for learning and educating Australians about Indigenous culture as well as encouraging the Rugby League community to take three key actions to be part of the change.

The theme of the round – Pass Back. Move Forward. – aligns with the 2022 National Reconciliation Week theme of Be Brave, Make Change.
