Indigenous Jersey

The 2022 Indigenous Jersey has been designed by proud Yorta Yorta, Gunnai, Gunditjmara and Wurundjeri man and artist, Coree Thorpe. 

Inspired by the story of the Rainbow Serpent, the design draws a connection to Storm and the club’s journey in the NRL throughout its first 24 years. The tale has strong ties to the Club's journey up and down the east coast of Australia in recent seasons and also provides a symbol for how regeneration is required for each new season.
