The Banabi Story

Banabi has been used for generations by the Dharawal speaking people of coastal Sydney to describe a place of fresh water.  The “birthplace” of European settlement at Circular Quay was chosen for its fresh water source. This was called the Tank stream. The traditional name for this stream is Banabi.

This group will consist of approx. 20 players specifically chosen from all of our pathways squads (based on age, playing position etc) this will also include 3 – 4 female players who are either playing at or have aspirations for Australian Jilaroos level. This group all have individual annual development plans tracked by staff at the club and are involved in once a month training at the Redfern facility with NRL coaching staff.
