Storm launch 2018 Indigenous jersey
Melbourne Storm have today unveiled their Indigenous jersey for the 2018 season.
This year's Indigenous jersey showcases purple as the primary colour whilst remaining true to the original artwork of previous years.
It will be worn by the team next Saturday night when Storm take on the Titans as part of NRL Double Header at Suncorp Stadium, an event that also coincides with NRL Indigenous Round.
The Club has worn an Indigenous jersey since 2012, in recognition of the history of Indigenous communities in rugby league whilst also acknowledging their contributions to the game.
The specially-designed logo will again be emblazoned on the 2018 jersey, which features three hands and three thunderbolts encircled together as a symbol of respect for one another and strong links to community.
The Yarra River, which has been a meeting point for local Aboriginal people for millennia, flows from the bottom of the jersey to the top left corner, signifying its proximity to AAMI Park, the home of Storm.
The outer circles shown on the bottom right corner and left shoulder of the jersey represent the Indigenous communities that Melbourne Storm are reaching through its various programs.
