Rugby Union looks for indigenous stars.

Rugby Australia's High Performance team will come to Goondiwindi as part of a tour to uncover First Nations talent.

The second leg of the #dreamBigTime tour will kick off Monday May 20 and it comes to Goondiwindi on Tuesday, May 28.

Following the third talent ID tour in the coming months the top 130 players will be flown to Sydney for a four-day camp where their skills will be put to the test in front of a panel of national coaches.

Two squads of 20 will then be chosen to represent two First Nations Sevens sides who will compete in five domestic and two international tournaments.

The long-term goal will be welcoming at least two players into the Australian Sevens squads for the 2024 Olympics.

Former Australian Men's Sevens Assistant Coach Jarred Hodges is leading the project. Rugby Australia invites all First Nations Peoples aged 14 - 25 to register at https://www.rugbyau.com/diversity/first-nations/dream-big-time.
