    "To recognise the huge contribution indigenous players have made to our great game of rugby league and also to celebrate our indigenous heroes that have donned the famous Maroon and White; the Manly Sea Eagles will take to the field in our Round 22 clash against the Storm sporting special Indigenous jerseys."

    Switch the maroon and white and this would be aces. Still, it'll probably be the only jersey you can get this year with full sponsorship on it. Unless I am mistaken.

    It's fine but looks too much like a Northern Eagles jersey for me. I don't want any reminder of that debacle.

    I'd get it if I was indigenous. I like it.

    I really hope Newcastle never participate in this concept again. Who can forget this horror?

    Why?
    What about all the other cultures that have contributed
    to the game.
    I just don't get it. How are we suppose to integrate, when they continue to differentiate?

    They are not over indigenous are they - in fact I'd say as indigenous as a 20 year pom like me  - I prefer the Newcastle jersey.
    Anyway - The thought & gesture is good. Hope they sell.

    What about all the pommies and Irishmen who have played league?Asians,Lebanese,Italians,Greeks?What about all the Islanders (eg Tongans,Polynesians)and Kiwis?When are we having a round for all of them?Why don't we have a round where the NRL clubs give something back to country league teams,many who struggle to get a team together,and keep it running?There have been many indigenous Australians who have pulled on league jumpers,but,there have been many fine crl players who have pulled on league jumpers.Most of them are born in Australia,and most have been here many,many generations!!

    I'm all for showing respect to great players & cultures of all creeds.
    We have had some of the greatest indigenous players playing for Manly. When I first came over part of what drew me to league rather than union which I was brought up on was the magic of players like Cliffy.

    I'm happy for it :) & I think the indigenous players & fans will get a sense of pride from it.

    All good.

    Meanwhile all those AUSTRALIAN people (not from some particular race/breed/color)who play country league get SFA!!!!Lucky those indigenous players got their break!!I reckon for every 1000 crl players,20 to 30 might get trials in NRL,and maybe 5 or so get a contract.

    Give it a rest ajay and turn down the redneck radio in the background. You obviously have no idea of the cultural differences and the difficulties faced by indigenous Australians. I think it is a great initiative and am extremely weary of people knocking moves to support them.
