Gallery: Marn Grook at the SCG

May 31, 2017 3:54 PM

The sights and colour of the AFL's Indigenous Round was on show over the weekend.

On Friday, it was Sydney's turn to celebrate Indigenous culture with the Club's annual Marn Grook at the SCG.

While the Swans didn't get the result against Hawthorn, the night still lived up to its expectation as a true spectacle in the home and away fixture.

Check out some of the best shots from the night below.
