Panthers is proud to unveil the 2020 Indigenous Jersey - an artistic tribute to the people, geography, flora and fauna of the Darug Nation.
The jersey was designed by Natasha Fordham in collaboration with Panthers Indigenous Welfare Officer Glen Liddiard and Panthers players Brent Naden, Daine Laurie and Brayden McGrady.
The front of the jersey features the meeting place of Panthers Stadium on Darug land, flanked by the Nepean River, local wildlife and the Blue Mountains.
The setting sun creates an eye-catching silhouette to acknowledge the traditional owners of the land the Panthers community calls home today.
The lower back of the jersey features the Darug possum totem, with fire on one side and flood on the other, representing the natural forces that impact the landscape and community.
Three more totems appear on the upper back of the jersey, in recognition of the club's Indigenous players Brent Naden (Wiradjuri - goanna), Brayden McGrady (Kamilaroi - snake) and Daine Laurie (Bundjalung / Yaegl - turtle).
The Panthers will wear the 2020 Indigenous Jersey in next Saturday's Round 12 clash against Manly at Lottoland.
While the jersey is not currently available for purchase at the Panther Shop, the player-worn jerseys from Round 12 will be signed and put up for auction following the game.
