The South Sydney Rabbitohs are pleased to announce their 20-man NRL squad for their round 11 fixture against the Wests-Tigers at the Stadium Australia, this Saturday 25th May at 7:30pm. Turner, Johnston, Burns, Doueihi, Tracey, Kennedy, Dillon, Denniss are unavailable due to injury.
South Sydney will wear their indigenous jersey for this match.
The jersey was designed by Indigenous artist and uncle of Cody Walker, Joe Walker. Joe is a proud Wahlabul man of the Bundjalung Nation on the far north coast of New South Wales. The jersey maintains the traditional red and green hoops of the South Sydney jersey which spans back to Rugby League’s foundation season of 1908, however the hoops are made from a sprawling dot painting that covers the entire jersey. The circles and lines that feature in the design represent the Club’s connection with the ocean in the east through to the land in the west. The club’s six Indigenous players, including recently retired captain Greg Inglis, decided that the 2019 jersey should maintain the traditional red and green hoops worn by Souths since the game’s foundation in 2008. The jersey features the handprints and totems of Walker (goanna), Inglis (praying mantis), Dane Gagai (shovel-nosed shark), Alex Johnston (crocodile), Kyle Turner (goanna) and Braidon Burns (emu). “It’s just a great representation of us as a community and us as a club,” Walker said. “Everyone has got their hand-print on the jersey and we wanted the totem inside the hand-print.”
