Round named in honour of Sir Doug Nicholls

The AFL’s annual round recognising and celebrating indigenous players and culture is named in honour of Sir Doug Nicholls.

Sir Doug, who epitomised the spirit of reconciliation, played 54 games for Fitzroy and was a brilliant all-round athlete. The first Aboriginal person to be knighted, he also served as Governor of South Australia and was devoted to the wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Round 10 of the 2019 season kicks off on Friday, May 24, when the Sydney Swans host Collingwood at the SCG. The marquee match of Sir Doug Nicholls round is the Dreamtime at the 'G clash between Richmond and Essendon on the Saturday night.

All 18 clubs will wear special indigenous-themed guernseys during the round.
