SIR DOUG NICHOLLS ROUND
Rounds 10 and 11 of the 2022 Toyota AFL Premiership Season for Sir Doug Nicholls Round as we celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and contribution to our game. This year’s theme we acknowledge the 30th anniversary of the Mabo decision and acknowledge the legacy of this decision and the efforts of the late Eddie ‘Koiki’ Mabo.
Sydney players will don a new Marn Grook guernsey this year, which has been designed by GO Foundation scholar, artist Lua Pellegrini. A proud Wiradjuri woman who grew up on Darug country, Pellegrini is studying at UNSW and is Chairperson of the NSW Youth Advisory Council. The artwork on the guernsey is titled Duguwaybul Yindyamangidyal which means altogether respectfully: respect, gentleness, politeness, honour, careful, altogether as one. It represents connectedness, depicting the story of the 19 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men who have played for the Sydney Swans, both in the past and the present.

Our match against Carlton will be broadcast live nationally on Fox Footy and Kayo, and on 7mate in NSW and the ACT.
