AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The Erambie Allblacks represented a small Wiradjuri community few more than 100 people in central-western New South Wales. The Allblacks played their first game against the Cowra Pioneers in 1922 in a game that was full of thrills. The speed and tackling of the Aboriginal team was a revelation. Reports about the game were that the new team would be hard to beat. Newspapers reported that the team roused the spectators to a high pitch of enthusiasm with barracking not heard at the Cowra ground. '
