‘There have been many discussion forums in the media and in Australia today There have been many phone calls today between different stakeholders,’ Abdo said on Thursday afternoon

‘A number of fans have expressed their views on a number of different platforms and on that basis the commission met and decided that this decision was not the intention and that ‘so it was important to restore the national anthem to start of the State of origin ‘

Abdo explained that the removal of the anthem from the Origin matches was done to celebrate the rivalry between the state teams

The commission decided that the anthem was appropriate to be played only in the NRL Grand Finals, Anzac Day matches, and Test matches, and did not intend to create a divisive political debate

Last year’s series was dominated by the issue when native blues trio Latrell Mitchell, Cody Walker and Josh Addo-Carr denounced before the game their refusal to sing

However, the initial decision to remove the anthem from this year’s Origin series was made without speaking to the NRL Indigenous Advisory Group.

Abdo said the NRL’s intentions were not politically motivated and therefore did not consult the advisory group before canceling the appeal

« Well, we haven’t spoken to them before that and they certainly weren’t lobbying, lobbying or pressuring us, » he said.

‘That’s why we haven’t consulted them on this decision now. It really was a decision the commission made

Abdo also confirmed that no player would be forced to sing the anthem and that those decisions are up to the individual

Stefanovic said: « I like it, it brings us together » ‘We have had such a divided year I love it, I love it’
