SEEKING ANSWERS: In Sydney, Phil Rothfield noted the NRL is also "embroiled in a dispute with former indigenous legends over their standing in the game." Former Tigers stars Larry Corowa and Percy Knight "have revealed relationships between the game's power brokers and indigenous figures have become toxic." Recent letters Corowa sent to Mattiske and Knight sent to ARLC Chair John Grant include complaints that the ARL Indigenous Council "has become an irrelevant part of the game, rarely consulted on issues, even involving the All Stars game."
