Australia’s Indigenous communities and their proud heritage will be celebrated in a huge week of footy from 7.30pm Thursday night – Live and Free on Channel 9HD and 9Now.

Speaking ahead of NRL Indigenous Round 2022, former Indigenous All Stars captain and Nine expert commentator Johnathan Thurston (Gunggari) said:

“Rugby league is by far the most significant sport to First Nations people, who are the oldest living culture in the world. We are so lucky to watch the amazing skills of our culture on show every week in the NRL.

“Indigenous Round is all about recognising the feats of our players and making people aware that whilst we are making improvements, we still have a long way to go in supporting Indigenous communities, which is why this round is so important.”

From the home of the Wurundjeri people, the Storm and the Sea Eagles will resume their bitter rivalry in Thursday Night Footy at AAMI Park. Melbourne viewers can watch the game on Nine’s main channel in High Definition, with club legends Cameron Smith and Billy Slater in commentary.

Bragging rights are on the line in Macca’s Friday Night Football when the Titans meet the Broncos in a Queensland local derby. All eyes will be on Broncos try-scoring sensation Selwyn Cobbo as he charges towards a debut Maroons Origin jersey.
 
On Sunday, the 2022 State of Origin coaches, Brad Fittler and Billy Slater, will go head to head on the Sunday Footy Show panel, before Ricky Stuart’s Raiders aim to continue their resurgence on Chemist Warehouse Sunday Footy against the Eels.
