St George Illawarra have this evening unveiled their 2018 commemorative jersey ahead of the Dragons' Round 8 traditional Anzac Day clash against the Sydney Roosters.
The Dragons will once again commemorate Anzac Day with a specifically-designed jersey which honours Armistice Day, that is, the end of the first World War.
The commemorative jersey will once again feature the Poppy V; the poppies which sit below are there to honour the fallen soldiers as well as the celebrations following the conclusion of the war in 1918 – now 100 years ago.
The image used toward the bottom of the jersey was sourced from the Australian War Memorial (AWM), who have partnered up with the Dragons in 2018.
Along with the use of the image of those celebrations, the Dragons are very proud to house the AWM logo on their 2018 commemorative jersey while the club and apparel partner XBlades have committed to donating funds back to AWM.

The 2018 Dragons commemorative jerseys are available to pre-order online or in-store right now, with an expected arrival of the jerseys in-store to come this weekend.
The Dragons commemorative jersey will play part in the NRL's Anzac Round across Round 8 of the 2018 NRL Telstra Premiership season.
It's an opportunity for the game to honour and commemorate the generations of Australian servicemen and women who have defended our values and freedoms, in wars, conflicts and peace operations for over 100 years.
