    I like it! Probably won’t purchase it until it goes on sale though because I’m a tight arse :lol:

    Couldn't think of another thread to post this in but thought it might be of some interest.
    It's a great explanation of the inspiration behind the indigenous jersey and worth a read.
    Think I might grab myself one of these for the first time.

    Introducing our 2018 Indigenous jersey

    On Thursday, the nib Newcastle Knights unveiled their Indigenous jersey for the 2018 season.

    It will be worn by the Knights next Friday night when they take on the Penrith Panthers for Round 10 at McDonald Jones Stadium, which coincides with the NRL Indigenous Round.

    The Club's 2018 Indigenous jersey was designed by past and present Knights players including Ashley Gordon, Owen Craigie, Timana Tahu and Connor Watson.

    Each player contributed a piece of their history to local Indigenous artist and proud Bundjalung women, Elise Randell from non-for-profit agency Justiz, who painted the artwork that makes up the foundations of the jersey design.

    Stay tuned for 2018 Indigenous jerseys online and in store at our Club Shop.

    THE STORY BEHIND THE JERSEY

    A backdrop of blue and green represents salt water and fresh water. There is a golden river running behind all totems which runs through the players counties. This created a strong connection with them as brothers and culturally. The white raised dots are representative of family and community from their place of origin and local aboriginal community ties.

    The top right fresh water turtle represents Ashley Gordon, a Kamilaroi man. It is the totem of his people and his country, while the echidna is significant to his family, told in a story by his family about the union of his parents.

    The bottom right represents Timana Tahu, a Barkindji man. The wedge tail eagle and dingo are the totems of his country and people.

    The bottom left represents Owen Craigie, a Gomeroi man. The sand goanna and kangaroo are the totems of his country and people.

    The top left represents Connor Watson, a Gamillaroi man. The sand goanna is also the totem of his country and people.

    Not really a fan tbh. Seems to be too much going on with the design. Or that just me?

    I know they are sponsors but shirt would look better without that big green label across the front.
