There was an important Mount Isa flavour to Saturday night's game between the Indigenous All Stars and the Maori team in Townsville on Saturday night.
The annual Indigenous showcase delivered passion aplenty with a 10-all draw in front of a packed Queensland Country Bank Stadium.
And the Indigenous teams - mens and womens - had penty of pride behind their passion with their jerseys designed by Kalkatoon artist and designer Chern'ee Sutton.
Ahead of the game Ms Sutton said she was so honoured to have designed the jersey for the NRL Indigenous Allstars men's and women's teams for 2021.
"Every time I see the men and women wearing their jerseys my heart fills with so much pride and joy," Ms Sutton said.
"I can't wait for the game on Saturday to see not only my jersey on the footy field, but to see the whole stadium filled with flags and supporter gear - such an incredible feeling."
She said the painting on the jerseys represented over 65,000 years of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culture and history, as well as the men's and women's indigenous Allstars teams and the battle which took place on the footy field.
The Mount Isa-born Ms Sutton, who now lives in Bundaberg, has designed the Indigenous All Star jerseys before including the years 2015-2017.
