Melbourne Storm’s 2016 Indigenous jersey is now on sale!
The jersey is manufactured by Melbourne Storm’s official on field apparel partner Star and is available for sale at the Club’s official online store.
Storm will wear a special Indigenous jersey in Round 10, Saturday 14 May in Brisbane when they host the Cowboys in the historic NRL Double Header at Suncorp Stadium.
Commemorating Indigenous Round across the NRL, Storm will wear the specially designed jersey for the fourth time in the club's history.
The logo in the middle of the jersey represents Melbourne Storm Rugby League Club. The outer circles are the broader Indigenous communities that Melbourne Storm are reaching through its various programs. The white lines represent each individuals pathway while the four colours represent the four seasons, representing diversity and change.
The Yarra river flows past AAMI Park, home of the Storm, the ‘Birrarung’ has been a meeting point and lifeline for local aboriginal people for a millennia. Water represents life and as it flows through the ‘Melbourne Storm Community’ it becomes much larger, which portrays the quality of life improving.
The jersey has been designed by Lenny Briggs and Dixon Patten.
