Current and former Rabbitohs players were at the Indigenous Players Camp that took place over the weekend, celebrating the influence and importance of Indigenous players in the game.

Greg Inglis, Luke Kelly and Brett Greinke took part in the weekend with former Rabbitoh Dean Widders sharing his knowledge with up and coming Indigenous NRL stars.

"This camp is all about giving those young guys the confidence of feeling comfortable in their skin," said Widders.

"Knowing that they're representing something bigger and that they can connect back to our communities. We don't leave our communities behind, we want to lead the way for our communities."

Rabbitohs forward Brett Greinke felt like the weekend offered a lot for young Indigenous players.

"The big thing I got was identity," said Greinke.

"We all come from different walks of life and we're in different places in our journey of connecting to our Aboriginality. Some of us may even be going back and finding what tribe we're from. Some may be going back and learning language.

"We've got to give as much as we take. While we may be taking and learing in those respects, we can give back our time or the skills we have as footy players.

"It's been an unreal weekend and I'm glad I came."
