The NSWRL Under-16s Indigenous Young Achievers unveiled their playing strip that they will proudly represent on their upcoming tour of France and Italy.
A squad of 35 players will visit a number of historical sights during the three-week tour, but none more significant than the Battlefields of the Somme, which also inspired the design of the ANZAC themed jerseys by none other than NSW staff member, Steve Hall's son.
Jason Edwards & Jake Gillett are two players who will represent NSW and their Indigenous community in November, and for Jake – this will be the second time he has received the call up.
One name, which has long been Synonymous with the Indigenous community, is KARI, and that tradition continues as they have become the major sponsor for the touring side.
For KARI CEO, Paul Ralph – he could not be prouder to see the message of the Indigenous community being delivered globally.
Many of the children selected in the Indigenous Young Achievers come from small communities across NSW and have just under three months to raise funds. If you are interested in helping make this trip of a lifetime achievable, contact Steve Hall.
