The Tigers have revealed their new wattle-inspired guernsey for their ANZAC Day Eve clash against Melbourne at the MCG.
The guernsey, set to be worn in Round 6, still showcases the traditional black with a yellow stripe except the stripe has now been replaced with a yellow wattle pattern.
The jumper, designed by Puma, also features a poem on the front of the guernsey: "Ode for the fallen", as well as featuring a list of Richmond players and officials that died at war on the back.
The wattle is a powerful symbol prominent within the Australian defence force. During times of conflict, the wattle would be pressed into letters and posted to travelling soldiers to remind them of home.
Many soldiers wore wattles in their hats, and fallen soldiers would often be buried with a sprig of wattle as a memorial to signify their sacrifice for their country.
Money earned from Richmond’s ANZAC Day Eve jumper will go towards the RSL’s ANZAC Appeal, supporting the families of soldiers both past and present.
We're proud to unveil our Golden Wattle-inspired Anzac Day Eve guernsey to be worn at the MCG against Melbourne.

The Tigers have won their last three games against the Dees, with Melbourne’s last victory over Richmond coming in a 43-point win in Round 6, 2019.
The reigning premiers currently sit first on the ladder and are yet to lose a game this season, while Richmond sit in 10th place having only won two of their four games.
