The first nations of Australia
have gone two from two over the Maori in the first festival
of indigenous rugby league. The Wahine Maori fell 18-0
to the First Nation Gems in a physical matchup, but it was the Gems
superior ball handling that was the telling factor
in the final result. In the men’s match, NZ Maori started off strong
against the Goannas but couldn’t quite keep up,
falling 22-16. Following on from the success
of this event, organisers are hoping to attract
NRL contracted players next year.
