The CFMEU pays its respects to the legendary Arthur Beetson who passed away on December 1.
Arthur Beetson is acknowledged an ‘Immortal’ in the world of Australian rugby league, renowned not only for his skills on the field, but also for his many firsts as an Indigenous player – including being the first to captain any sports team in Australia.
At the CFMEU, he is particularly remembered for his support of Indigenous people at home and abroad; for his work in Papua New Guinea and especially his long support for the NSW Maori Rugby League.
