The unveiling of our 2016 Indigenous jumper was also popular amongst fans. The eye-catching design was created by the aunt of Eddie Betts, Susie Betts. The artwork tells the important story of the crow, or the Garnga as it’s known in the Wirangu culture. The Crows will wear the jumper under lights at Adelaide Oval against Greater Western Sydney in Round 10.
