Are we all Australians - guess not, just some of us.

Hope this also applies in reverse.

Disappointing eh…
But yeah, outrage culture at it again.

Gotta appease the boys who don’t like the song

I read somewhere that Madge used the “Would you have a cup of tea with that person” approach when deciding whether or not to sign a player. When I heard that LM was listening to Anthony Mundine’s advice, I was worried. Thankfully, we dodged a bullet.

Australians all let us rejoice
For we are young and free
We’ve golden soil and wealth for toil
Our home is girt by sea
Our land abounds in nature’s gifts
Of beauty rich and rare
In history’s page, let every stage
Advance Australia Fair
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia Fair
Beneath our radiant Southern Cross
We’ll toil with hearts and hands
To make this Commonwealth of ours
renowned of all the lands
For those who’ve come across the seas
We’ve boundless plains to share
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair
In joyful strains then let us sing
Advance Australia Fair

I’m going to agree with the ARLC on this one

My opinion , the national anthem should really only be played when AUSTRALIA is playing

If you want to avoid an argument, simply take the NO out of the Equation. Well done Happy! When the ALL Stars v Maoris gig was being designed that should have been decided back then. Dumb NRL bureaucrats. BTW How many “Maoris” are Samoan & Tongan Juniors? Will they sing the Ardern Anthem?

Agree, its overplayed. It should be special and played at the start of International matches only.

Just curious, now that the national anthem is not being played i guess the Ernie Dingo made up Welcome to Country will also be cut from the agenda.
