Allan Alaalatoa will walk to his locker deep in the bowels of Canberra Stadium and hanging before him, like any other Saturday night, will be his ACT Brumbies jersey.
Except this is not like any other Super Rugby AU game for Alaalatoa and the Brumbies. The jerseys they wear will boast Indigenous designs for the first time in club history.
So when Andy Muirhead gets the nod to come off the bench against the Queensland Reds, he will do so for the Brumbies, for the Barunggam people.
For players like Andrew Walker, a pivotal part in the club's first championship triumph who never got the opportunity to wear a jersey like this.
Yet while the Brumbies take a major leap on national pay television to bridge the culture gap, the back courts at Belconnen Basketball Stadium show us how much further we have to go.

Basketball ACT chief executive David Simpson admits there is a sore need for more cultural awareness training and education following allegations 12-year-old girls were the victims of racial slurs at a basketball game.
It's the second time in less than a year Basketball ACT has been forced to deal with on-court racism issues, when sport again showed it perversely doubles as a mirror on division despite its place as a catalyst for progress.
Because those preaching hate remain accountable only to themselves as long as they continue to play despite alleged racial slurs but get sent off the basketball court for wearing the wrong shorts.
It comes seven weeks after hundreds of protesters knelt on the lawns of Parliament House for nine minutes - the amount of time it took for George Floyd to be killed at the hands of police in the United States.
So how much did society truly learn from the Black Lives Matter movement? Did many take much out of it, or was the job considered done by posting a black square on Instagram?
There was so much good to come from said movement, but there is still so far to go. Any Australians who maintain racism is not a serious issue on our shores is so naive it causes one's blood to boil. Watch a non-Indigenous player stand silent during a national anthem and nobody bats an eyelid. But if Latrell Mitchell does it? The pitchforks and torches come out in droves.
The Brumbies' Indigenous strip will be worn on the same weekend NRL clubs are wearing their own in what shapes as a beautiful celebration of the code's links to First Nations people and a showcase for reconciliation.
Yet Canberra Raiders five-eighth Jack Wighton caused a major stir when he said he was "filthy" there was no consultation with the playing group over the design of the Green Machine's Indigenous jersey.
The fact Wighton felt the need to have his say on the jersey design shows how powerful these moments are.
The Brumbies wore a one-off Pasifika jersey design last year with designs representing the Maori people of Aotearoa, and the people of Samoa, Fiji, Niue, Tonga and the Cook Islands.

Ask Brumbies and Wallabies prop Scott Sio and he says it bridged gaps between cultures in the team. It gave players a better understanding of who their teammates are and what makes them tick.
Alaalatoa felt it. This week they do it again and embrace Australia's heritage with a jersey featuring the hooves of wild Brumbies morphing into the footprints of the 10 Indigenous men to have played for the club.
"The best thing about it is we have someone stand up and explain the patterns, what's on the jersey and what it means to them," Alaalatoa said.
"For us, we have a representative in Andy Muirhead who is going to get up soon, explain the jersey and what it means to him and the Indigenous community.
"It's not only about us wearing it, it's about us understanding the importance behind the jersey and what it means to that specific community, and for us that is the Indigenous community and the traditional custodians of our land.
"For us to get an insight of the importance of that for the Indigenous community is really special. I'm looking forward to hearing about what he has to say.
"As a Brumby, to wear that jersey for the first time is really special. The boys are looking forward to it."
