Redcliffe to face Tigers in Indigenous jersey

Redcliffe legends such as Arthur Beetson, Kevin Yow Yeh and the McGrady brothers will be honoured when the Dolphins run out in a familiar Indigenous jersey in their Hostplus Cup match up this weekend.

The Dolphins will take to the field against the Brisbane Tigers in their return to Langlands Park at 2.10pm on Sunday.

Redcliffe will wear a copy of the memorable 2013 Indigenous jersey that was worn by a team that included the likes of Petero Civoniceva, Cameron Cullen and Liam Georgetown.

The ‘Fishing Trip’ artwork that inspired the jersey was commissioned from renowned Queensland Indigenous artist Charlie Chambers.

Redcliffe chief executive Grant Cleal said the jersey, which was first tried on by current fullback Trai Fuller, was a fitting tribute to all Indigenous players that had played for the club over its 75-year history.

“It was a very popular design with our fans and players back in 2013 so we thought we would celebrate its 10 year anniversary by wearing the 2022 version for our Indigenous Round clash against the Tigers,” said Cleal.

“The Redcliffe Dolphins have a wonderful history of talented Indigenous players including Arthur Beetson, Kevin Yow Yeh, Ricky and Jason McGrady, Aaron Barba, Joe Bond any many, many more.”
