The Australian Kangaroos have paused on Friday, November 11, along with many Australians, to honour Remembrance Day and those who have fought for freedom.

Members of the team have been sending messages home to Australia, encouraging everyone to wear a poppy in honour of the fallen and pause to reflect on the selfless sacrifices that thousands of Australians have made in years past.

Kangaroos skipper Cameron Smith led the tributes and said November 11 was an important day for Australians to honour those who have served our country in times of conflict.

Earlier this year, the NRL acknowledged its continued partnership with the Returned Services League (RSL) as it commemorated its 100th anniversary.
