League Notes: Indigenous Players In National Rugby League To Create War Cry
Indigenous National Rugby League players are "set to step up plans to have their own war cry, with Cronulla winger Jonathan Wright having been enlisted to help develop the dance." Wright, who "worked as a dance instructor after leaving school, will begin work on the Aboriginal war cry as soon his commitments with the Sharks are finished and has begun compiling video clips with some ideas before a gathering of players next month." Others, including Brisbane's Sam Thaiday, Parramatta's Luke Kelly and Melbourne's Will Chambers, have "also been asked for input" (SYDNEY MORNING HERALD, 8/12). ... The Singapore Professional Golfers' Association joined the labor movement as a "National Trades Union Congress U Associate." This is the first time a sports association has "come on board the NTUC's U Associate Programme so that its members can enjoy a wide range of benefits and advocacy of the union." The link-up will "also help the SPGA's professional coaches to distinguish themselves from amateur golfers who also provide golfing lessons" (NEW PAPER, 8/12).
