Peter V’landys supports Indigenous All Stars education idea after racism incident
ARL Commission Chairman Peter V’landys has backed a call by Cronulla star Nicho Hynes for a teenager caught up in a racism incident to be invited into the Indigenous All Stars camp next year.
It comes after Souths fullback Latrell Mitchell was allegedly racially abused by a 15-year-old at half-time of his team’s loss to Penrith on Thursday night at BlueBet Stadium.
V’landys told The Continuous Call Team it would be beneficial for the teenager to be invited into the camp for education, after last year’s Dally M Medallist proposed the idea if Mitchell was ok with it.
“Absolutely,” V’landys said.
“We need to educate our society about racism and how bad it is.
“We’re all human beings, we’re all equal and we should all respect each other.”
