It's been a solid start from both sides, as Warriors get the first SET RESTART of the evening.

KICK-OFF! Here we go! Tigers from the nothern end get us underway.

First out is the Warriors! They stroll out in their indigenious design and look to cause an upset against the flying Tigers. Next out, the Tigers, resplendent in their design trot onto the famous SCG. The two sides form a boomerang as we have the welcome to country then a hongi to embrace the maori culture before kick-off.

Happy Friday everybody! It is Indigenious round and we have two wonderful clashes coming up for you! Firstly, for myself, I would like to acknowledge the Darug people, whose traditional land that this update is being done and to the Tharawal and Gandangara Nations.who also were prominent in south-west Sydney. Onto the game tonight! Both teams were narrow losers last start - the Warriors to the Premiers, Tigers to local rivals Eels in a spiteful clash. Now the Warriors have lost some of their superstars but none of their heart as they attempt to knock over a Tigers side full of energy and committment in 2020! Grab a drink, sit back and enjoy Friday night football!
