The Canberra Raiders have unveiled their Centenary of Canberra jersey.
The Canberra Raiders will be joining in on Canberra’s Centenary Celebrations, when they wear a special Centenary Jersey against the Broncos on June 10 (Monday) at Canberra Stadium.
The jersey was officially launched today at the top of the iconic Canberra landmark Telstra Tower, with Raiders stars Terry Campese, Josh Papalii, Paul Vaughan and Mark Nicholls on hand to model the new strip.
The jersey design is based on a mix of the early representative strips of the first official ACT based representative rugby league teams which were established in the 1970’s. Before this time players from the ACT represented the region via the Monaro representative team.
The Canberra Raiders were established in 1982 after gaining submission into the NSW Rugby League (now NRL) and this jersey design is a celebration of the progression of the local competition developing into a national sporting organisation.
