This year’s West Coast Eagles Sir Doug Nicholls Round guernsey was
designed in consultation with the club’s Reconciliation Action Plan
(RAP) reference group, which includes the likes of current players Lewis
Jetta, Willie Rioli and Liam Duggan, coaches Jaymie Graham and Adrian
Hickmott and former player and West Coast Eagles indigenous liaison
officer Phil Narkle.
The circles at the top of the design represent the members, fans and football community, with the small semi-circles (signifying footprints in Aboriginal symbolism) that surround them portraying the varied pathways that lead to the club.
The design as a whole depicts the connection of the club to its players, supporters, community and heritage, as it is through the Waalitj that the land today is as we see it: full of diversity, growth, freedom and opportunity.
The Guernsey will be worn twice this year, in Round 11 when West Coast plays St Kilda and Round 16 when the Eagles play the GWS Giants during NAIDOC week.
Please note: These jerseys are a slim fit and we recommend ordering one size bigger than what you would normally
