“There’s a lot of real good things about this town and its the same with Aboriginal communities…. good stuff that’s overlooked.” Rugby League great Dean Widders.

This week youth in Mparntwe/ Alice Springs were treated to a rugby league training session at Anzac Oval with Parramatta Eels legends Steve “The ZipZip Man” Ella and power house forward and Anaiman Man Dean Widders. The pair were here for a few days holding training sessions at local schools and traveling to remote Aboriginal communities, engaging with the mob and teaching about health living and deadly choices that can be made.
