Members of the Lajamanu team wait inside the mini bus as team mates organise fuel and food supplies. The bus is packed full of clothes and blankets, the players take any seat they can, with some sitting on bags and blankets that line the aisle. The doors are jammed shut and the team begins the journey 583kms along dirt roads from Lajamanu to the Yuendumu Football Carnival. Lajamanu, Northern Territory, Australia, Thursday 1st August 2019.
