Panthers is proud to unveil the 2024 Panthers Indigenous Jersey – to be worn in Round 12 against the Cronulla Sharks.
The jersey was designed by Natasha Fordham in collaboration with Panthers Indigenous Wellbeing Officer Glen Liddiard.
Following on from the overwhelmingly positive response to the jersey in which the Panthers defeated the Broncos in at Suncorp Stadium last season, the 2024 jersey incorporates the same pattern with the prominent licorice allsorts tri colours adding a fresh look to the design.
The jersey features returning Panther Daine Laurie’s handprint on the front of the jersey (under the Telstra Premiership logo) as well as that of female staff member Taylah Murray, recognising the role both genders play across the Rugby League landscape.
Key features of the jersey include:
- The colours from both the Australian Aboriginal Flag and the Torres Strait Islander Flag are featured on the sleeves
- Male and female totems of the Darug Nation, the fruit bat and ring-tail possum represent gender equality and the role males and females play in Rugby League on and off the field
- Two black cockatoo’s ‘Garmit’ overlook the land in which we unite, three kangaroos ‘Badagarangs’ as well as a platypus and eastern long neck turtle ‘Kutuklung’ are depicted swimming in the Darug Nation river systems highlighting the vast array of fauna which occupy the land we are on
- Emblazoned on the top back of the jersey is the word ‘Warami’ meaning Welcome
The Panthers will wear the 2024 Indigenous Jersey in Round 12 – as the game recognises the role Indigenous players and communities play on and off the field.
The 2024 Indigenous Jersey is now available for pre-order from the Panther Shop. Complete your pre-order by Friday 23 February to guarantee you can wear it with pride throughout NRL Indigenous Round.
