North’s players have collaborated with talented Indigenous artist Sarrita King to produce the fourth stunning indigenous jumper. Along with the Roos’ apparel partner, Canterbury, Lindsay Thomas, Jed Anderson and former club champion Daniel Wells helped design a unique piece steeped in deep spiritual meaning and tradition.
“We’ve had some great jumpers over the years, but this one is particularly special to us,” Thomas explained.
"We wanted something that represented all the indigenous players that have pulled on the North jumper over the decades."
Sarrita's circles represent the various tribes we are all from. Wellsy came up with the idea to recreate the iconic North Melbourne kangaroo with a more indigenous interpretation which looks fantastic.
"We were all heavily involved in the idea and the design. This jumper has a significant storyline. I can’t wait to wear it." North’s current group of indigenous players include Lindsay Thomas, Jed Anderson, Paul Ahern and Jy Simpkin.
