Now in its fourth year on the island, the game is a Queensland Rugby League Indigenous Recognition Round oif the Intrust Super cup.

The game will be televised live from 1pm on Channel 9, promoting both indigenous culture and Redland tourism.

It will be played at the Sharks grounds, Ron Stark Oval.

Operations and events manager for the Wynnum Manly Seagulls Joe Wood said the club had a proud history of indigenous players.

This included former player and life member the great Lionel Morgan who was the first indigenous player to be capped for the Australian Kangaroos.

“Our club is the largest in the region and we feel a responsibility to play a game away from home and give a community such as that on Stradbroke the chance to be involved,” he said.

“The Seagulls have always received tremendous support and we look forward to the 2018 game.”
