Today we are proud to unveil the official Purchas Cup 2021 commemorative jersey, designed by local Whadjuk Noongar artist Seantelle Walsh.
The songlines across the jersey represent each of our individual journeys, meeting at the campfire on the back left representing our diverse rugby community coming together. The campfire on the right breast reflects the close bond and loyalty we have to our clubs and our teammates.
During the NAIDOC week 2021 celebrations, the Perth Rams and Rugby Australia seek to embrace our First Nations’ cultural knowledge and understanding of Country as part of Australia's national heritage and equally respect the culture and values of Aboriginal peoples. 100% of proceeds from sales of the commemorative jersey will be donated to Black Rainbow who are investing in the futures of the Indigenous LGBTIQ+ community nation-wide.
