Wests Tigers 2017 Nines Playing Shorts
The artwork featured in the 2017 Nines Shorts, designed by Wests Tigers player Wes Lolo is a tribute and celebration of our Pasifika players, past and present, and the Pasifika communities that help shape and support Our Team, Our Club and Our region.
There are tapa patterns representing Tonga, Samoa and his native Niue, images of fish to symbolise water needed by athletes, turtle prints, which reflect the patient journey undertaken by all footballers, and flowers and leaves to acknowledge the work carried out by women in rugby league.
"Culture is a big thing we push here, and unity is a massive part of that culture. I wanted to push that a lot."
