Bulldogs Unveil Special 2023 ANZAC Round Jersey

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have unveiled the jerseys that their team will proudly wear in the upcoming 2023 NRL Premiership ANZAC Round, on Saturday April 22 (Round 8).

Kicking off just before the going down of the sun at 5:30pm, the Bulldogs will face off against the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks at Accor Stadium to mark the occasion.

The team will be wearing the Club's latest design, a jersey that has been inspired by our ANZAC heroes.

On the 25th of April 1915, Australian and New Zealand soldiers formed part of the allied expedition that set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula. These became known as ANZACs and the pride they took in that name continues to this day.

It is the Bulldogs' honour to wear a commemorative jersey and play in an NRL Round that respects our ANZAC heroes.

The Bulldogs usual blue stripes have been switched out for a rosemary chevron design in this special edition jersey.

According to tradition, rosemary is worn as a symbol of loyalty, fidelity and remembrance. The rosemary forming our chevron meets at a singular, red poppy, and represents all those who served and died fighting for our freedom.

The aromatic herb grows wild on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey, where many brave Australian and New Zealand troops served during World War I. It is used in ANZAC day services and ceremonies around the world, as a reminder of the sacrifices made by those who served their country.

At the centre of the chest, is the red poppy. It is customary to wear a red poppy on ANZAC Day as a sign of respect and gratitude for the sacrifices made by our ANZAC soldiers. The red poppy in this years' jersey is also a nod to the 2022 design, as well as a stark reminder of all those who served and were lost, but never forgotten.

The poem, 'For the Fallen' also adorns the Bulldogs 2023 ANZAC Jersey. For the Fallen was written by English writer, Laurence Binyon. The most well-known verse from Binyon's poem is the fourth stanza, The Ode, which is often recited during ceremonies of remembrance:

E kore rātou e kaumātuatia
Pēnei i a tātou kua mahue nei
E kore hoki rātou e ngoikore
Ahakoa pehea i  ngā āhuatanga o te wā
I te hekenga atu o te rā
Tae noa ki te aranga mai i te ata
Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou.
Ka maumahara tonu tātou ki a rātou.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,
We will remember them.
We will remember them.

You can read the full poem, 'For the Fallen', here.

The final detail of the Bulldogs 2023 ANZAC Round Jersey represents mateship and strength, and reminds us of the ANZAC Spirit.

The Australian and New Zealand Flags, which were flown side by side during The Battle of Gallipoli, feature on the back of the jersey in honour of the proud homelands to which our ANZACs served to protect. 

The flags sit side by side as a symbol of unity and shared sacrifice.
