The Giants are the latest club to release their indigenous guernsey for 2016.

Greater Wester Sydney’s guernsey was designed by Brungle resident Luke Penrith for the second year in a row.

“The large footprints represent the impact the GIANTS are having on the region from Western Sydney, through Canberra and into the Riverina and will continue to have in the years to come,” said Penrith.

“It also reflects the journey – within each foot step, the team is striving for bigger things and putting in the hard years. They are learning and building and believing in themselves and each other.

“The boomerangs represent the past present and future as well as symbolising the young players earning their stripes as they move forward – they are flying high, driving hard and outplaying their foes.

“And the Sunset dreaming on the back is all about dreaming of a brighter future as the sunsets over the Blue Mountains in the West.”

GWS will wear the guernsey in indigenous round, in round 10, against Adelaide.
