EP 121: NRL's Pacific Islander Revolution with Patrick Skene

With another successful NRL Indigenous Round taking place over the weekend, this episode's guest tells the story of one of the other main cultural influences on Australian rugby league. Polynesia, via South Auckland. A migration wave that sees close to 1000 young kids moving to Australia from New Zealand each year. Patrick Skene is the author behind The Big O - Pacific Revolution Pioneer, the autobiography of Olsen Filipaina, one of the first usos to ever do it.
