    Western Force Jersey 2022 Reveal

    The Western Force will proudly wear an Indigenous-inspired home and away jersey during the 2022 Super Rugby Pacific season.

    Created by Nyoongar artist Darryl Bellotti, the design features prominently on both jerseys to ensure the Force represent Western Australia’s proud Indigenous heritage in every match this year.

    The swirls represent the Derbarl Yerrigan (Swan River) with the circular patterns showing the Boodja (land) of all the different regions within WA. The curved lines symbolise the journey the club has taken, while the swirls demonstrate the ripples in the water caused by the Maali (black swan).

    Bellotti describes the unique design as one intended to create a sense of belonging for all Western Australians.

    “I took inspiration from the Derbarl Yerrigan, the Boodja and intertwined these with the journey lines showing the history of the Force,” Bellotti explained.

    “So much of Nyoongar culture revolves around the water, it holds a sacred significance to it, so to involve the Derbarl Yerrigan and connect it to the Sea of Blue, the passionate and loyal fans, was fantastic. The water is the life source, much like the fans are for the club.

    “The Force may play here in Perth in Nyoongar country, but they are also representing the entire state, so I made sure to frame the design to show the four corners of WA.”

    Wish there was a way to keep the swan black on the away kit.

    I'm missing those 2020 Paladin kits

    That pic makes it look too close to another club's kit (the blue) but the video seems to show it darker blue.

    Check out the shop on the Western Force website as they have both front and back views of both jerseys

    Also on a side note - I wish they did a clean sponsor less version for supporters, the Wallabies managed to it.

    wasn't that a requirement for Rugby World Cup?

    I like the design of the one Kahui is wearing. The colour is a little disturbing though.

    I think that was because they ordered the retail units before the sponsor was secured, so they didn't have much choice in the matter!
