NRL Indigenous Round Information
The NRL Indigenous Round provides an opportunity for our game to recognise and celebrate the unique relationship between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and Rugby League.
The round additionally aims to highlight the significant social issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
The Dragons pay their respect to the Dharawal people as traditional owners who have, and continue to nurture, the land of which our catchment is part.
The Dragons will wear their Indigenous jersey against the Souths Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park in Round 11.
The unique design of the jersey will have a special relevance as both teams will take the field in their respective individually designed strips to celebrate the indigenous culture within our communities.
