Article was edited to avoid offence against the whole Aboriginal saga (when I say edited, I mean whole segments removed), but I what I was trying to say was that in a utopian society that’s what would happen, but I have nothing against them playing at ANZ.

Making rugby league magic (and money) at ANZ Stadium

Sorry if I wasn’t ery clear, it was a sarcastic comment made in jest. And yes, Toronto is a heavily saturated market, but the fact of the matter is rugby league can secure minimum gates of 7,000 fans, regardless of other sporting activity going on in the city.

I understand the need to celebrate Indigenous culture, but for God sake end this farce. For starters, all this does is cement an image that the ‘British’ Australians and native Australians are of extreme difference, despite them representing the same nation. It simply is the equivalent of having a whites against blacks match. Such racial discrimination should not be stood for (sorry, this is my piece for the Guardian). The point is, if Australian rugby league truly wants to celebrate indigenous culture, take the ‘bold’ step and implement a war dance like the Kiwis did, almost a century ago!
