Both front and back artwork was painted by Budda Connors, a proud Ngunnawal man

The playing jersey worn by the Brumbies for its First Nations Round game v. Blues on Saturday 21st May shares the same themes as the shirt which has been worn by the team this season during Captain’s Run and Pre-game sessions.

The playing jersey shown below depicts the Brindabella mountains which border Canberra and are part of Ngunnawal country. They are also home to the iconic wild brumbies from where the Brumbies Rugby name originated.The mountains show a series of yarning circles linked by dotted lines representing the journey of blood, sweat and tears experienced by Brumbies teams both past and present.

On the back are handprints representing both strength and unity – characteristics inherent in First Nations peoples and ones to which the Brumbies aspire. We are also proud to be able to include both the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags.

The dark orange background design includes other elements clearly seen on the blue Captains Run/Pre-game shirt which is also shown below. These are the meeting of the 11 past and present First Nations Brumbies players with our current First Nations player, Andy Muirhead, represented in the middle of the circle. The lines around the meeting place represent the journey these 11 players have taken to be part of the Brumbies story.

Also included in the background of the playing jersey, and shown clearly in the Captains Run/Pre-game shirt at the sides of the mountains, are male and female symbols which represent the Brumbies’ Super Rugby (Men’s) and Super W (Women’s) teams.
