With a cold wind blowing through the world of corporate finance the Brumbies have decided they are, once again, proudly a Canberra team as they return to the warm soft embrace of a Government town.
From their media release:
CA Brumbies Stephen Hoiles, Justin Harrison and Guy Shepherdson, and ACT Sports Minister Andrew Barr were present to model the new-look ‘home’, ‘away’ and ‘heritage’ KooGA jerseys that feature the word ‘Canberra’ under the ACT Coat of Arms, a reference to the national capital’s centenary anniversary in 2013. The reference will remain on the jersey across the next four Super Rugby seasons.
In a further increased connection to the ACT, a stylised version of the ACT Coat of Arms will be incorporated onto the retail jersey to be sold throughout the region, nationally and internationally. This revised coat of arms, designed in association and with the support of the ACT Government, allows the retail jersey to be virtually identical to the playing jersey.
