Northern United Rugby League Football Club is based in Lismore, Northern NSW, heart of Bundjalung country. We are the original custodians of this land.

As Bundjalung people we are part of a large Aboriginal nation which includes clans from Grafton to Ipswich, to Beaudesert, to Warwick and Tabulam. The 15 tribal groups comprising our Nation include Aragwal, Banbai, Birbai, Galiabal, Gidabal, Gumbainggeri, Jigara, Jugambal, Jugumbir, Jungai, Minjungbal, Ngacu, Ngamba, Thungutti and Widjabal.

We have many notable Bundjalung people who’ve made a mark in our society. Footballers include Albert Torrens, a former international rugby league footballer who played for the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, Northern Eagles and St. George Illawarra Dragons in the Australian NRL, Tyrone Roberts, current Gold Coast Titans NRL player, Amos Roberts former Sydney Roosters NRL player and Cody Walker, current South Sydney Rabbitohs NRL player.

At Northern United we play with footballers from Moree in the west to Kempsey in the south.

Because we cover such a large geographic distance our matches bring so many people from far away together.

Our annual Knockout is recognised as the largest Indigenous cultural gathering in the Northern Rivers of NSW each year. It’s the one event every year (bigger than Christmas) that you never miss – easily 5000 Aboriginal people attend!

Our mob loves to come together! Elders, little ones and everyone in between. Those who love to run the field. And those who love to watch.

ARTWORK BY DIGBY MORAN

Digby Moran is a Bunjalung artist who paints prolifically. His work speaks from the heart and soul and is imbued with memories and stories from his childhood. “Painting gives me great pleasure and brings me peace. It is a way for me to tell the stories that were told to me by my grandparents and elders when I was growing up”.

Digby won the inaugural People’s Choice Award at the National Aboriginal and Islander Telstra Art Award at the Northern Territory Art Gallery (Darwin) in 2000. His many exhibitions include the Berlin Aboriginal Art Gallery (Germany 2001), the New Media Gallery (Vienna, Austria 2003), solo shows at Museum Hamelin (Germany 2004), in Dursburg (Germany 2009) and Emmerich (Germany 2009) and NSW Parliament (2010).
