The Western Bulldogs Indigenous Guernsey

This design of this year’s Indigenous Round guernsey, came to 16-year-old Wurundjeri –Yorta Yorta artist, Cooper Craig-Peters in a dream.

Craig-Peters’ Bulldogs roots run deep. He’s a graduate of both the Bulldogs’ Community Foundation’s Leadership Project (formerly Whitten Project) and Nallei-jerring Koori Youth Leadership Program, and is a member of the Club’s Next Generation Academy.
