Celebrations will get underway at 11am with a‘welcome to country and a smoking ceremony’followed by the Jerrinja Dance Group.
Three games are scheduled, with the under 18s kicking all the action offat 11.30 am.
Women’s League Tag will then kick-off at 1pm, before the maingame of third grade starting at 2pm.
There are also activities planned for the half-time breaks of under 18s and WLT, with the Cullunghutti Choir entertaining the crowd at half-time of the third grade match.
Event co-ordinator Darryl Farrell was excited his club have got behind such a great idea.
“The Indigenous round is an opportunity to pay tribute to the many Indigenous players and communities that play a vital role within rugby league and the wider community,” he said.
“It is also an opportunity to share our culture with the wider community and celebrate as one.
“The jerseys, which look amazing,were designed by Jordan Ardler from the Dharawal people of La Parouse.
“Jordan is in her final year of graphic design at University andher art is inspired by imagery and her surroundings rather than story telling.
“Jordan is also a very talented artist andwe very grateful for her help with the jersey design.”
The canteen and barbecue will be running on the day and there is ample car parking available.
