NRL WA to host third Harmony Cup and NRL Community Programs
December 2nd 2019
NRL WA will host a third consecutive Harmony Cup Nines Tournament, commencing Friday 6th December to Sunday 8th December.
The Cup will be held at Lark Hill Sportsplex, Port Kennedy and will see 47 rugby league teams take to the field, with male and female players spanning 12 cultural groups across 123 games.
Some of the communities represented include Australia, Cook Islands, Fiji , Great Britain , Indigenous , Indigenous-Pilbara , Maori , New Zealand , Niue , Samoa , Tokelau , Tonga and Oceania.
In addition to the on-field action, current and former NRL players including Clinton Toopi and Joe Galuvao will attend and present a series of community programs to high school students and players attending the Cup.
The key program will be the NRL’s “In League in Harmony” community initiative
which focuses on empowering young people to acknowledge, appreciate and celebrate the diversity among their peers and the wider community.
NRL WA General Manager, John Sackson said the Harmony Cup was a fantastic opportunity to celebrate a range of cultures that co-exist within the game of rugby league.
“One of the NRL’s core values is inclusiveness and ensuring everyone in our game feels welcome on and off the field,” Mr Sackson said.
“Our third annual Harmony Cup is a great opportunity to embrace the many communities and cultures that are part of rugby league in Western Australia and to celebrate our game together.
