The Bingham Cup—the world cup of gay rugby—launches at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Sydney and will feature the performance which the Indigenous players from the Sydney Convicts have been working on for the past month with Bangarra.

The men behind this odd-couple pairing are James Saunders, fly half for the Sydney Convicts, and Bangarra choreographer Patrick Thaiday.

They will be performing a dance in honour of Thaiday’s totem, the Baru (saltwater crocodile).

The Sydney Convicts were formed in 2004 and are the most successful club to have competed in the Bingham Cup, having won the Cup three times.
