When the only "Aborigines" who achieve anything are in fact white, it just casts into sharp relief how hopeless real Aborigines are. It is a message of white supremacy

Indigenous rendition of Advance Australia Fair leaves rugby fans with 'goosebumps' as every Wallabies player joins in. Many claimed it was the best rendition of the national anthem they'd ever heard

Proud Wiradjuri woman Olivia Fox sung the Australian anthem in the Indigenous Eora language before the Tri Nations rugby union game between the Wallabies and Argentina on Saturday night.

Every player from the Wallabies learned the words to the Indigenous verse and sung along, leaving fans touched.

Saturday's national anthem is the first time the joint-language song was performed at an international sporting event in Australia.

It is understood Ms Fox held practice sessions with the Wallabies players to ensure they knew all the words for the performance, to make sure the moment received respect.

Rugby Union fans were positive about the national anthem, with many viewers welcoming the change.
