Panthers 2018 Indigenous Guernsey Design Revealed
South Adelaide is proud to reveal the striking design for the club's 2018 Indigenous Guernsey.
The guernsey, which was designed by brothers Rohan Carmody and former Panthers star Rigby Barnes, will be worn during South's clash with Glenelg at Gliderol Stadium on Saturday, July 14 during Indigenous Round.
The jumpers design tells the story of Ngkwerenenghe Atherre (Two Sisters), in which two sisters travelled from Anarpipe (north of Alice Springs) through to South Australia at night time, following the Milky Way. They became part of the creation story for the Ngarrindjeri and Kaurna peoples along the Coorong and Adelaide Plains area.
The two sisters can be seen placed on either side of the SA monogram on the front of the jumper.
Aboriginal Australian's are the world's oldest astronomers, using the sky to navigate this country for thousands of years. The design for the Milky Way, which the two sisters used to navigate their way to South Australia, can be found within the club's traditional hoops.
The front of the jumper also features the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags, which represents the contribution of the current and previous Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players at South Adelaide.
Replica Indigenous jumpers are now available for pre-order.
Pre-orders close on Saturday, July 7 at which point a final order will be made.
Match-worn guernseys will be auctioned off following Indigenous Round.
