Artist Dennis Golding, who designed the artwork for Wests Tigers 2016 Indigenous Jersey, explains the design and the significance of the various features in the strip.

A long-time fan of Wests Tigers, Golding said the focus of the design was to reflect two different groups meeting together and uniting as one.

"What I’ve designed is the two teams — and you can also that to two communities — and they come here into the centre area where they can meet and support one another," he said.

"You look back at the history of Wests Tigers and it’s come from two teams — from Western Suburbs Magpies and Balmain Tigers — and this centre speaks to that.

"It’s a quite popular symbol that a lot of artists use for meeting place. That’s what I’ve tried to put in there; that this is the meeting place where two teams combine and unite as one.

"This jersey doesn’t just talk about me or my designs," he said.

"I’ve tried to keep this universal for the rest of Wests Tigers and for my family."

Wests Tigers will wear the jersey on Sunday, May 15 when they take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium for their Round 10 clash.

The jersey is currently available for purchase at $160 for adults and $135 for kids.
