The Brisbane Lions will honour the ANZACs by wearing a limited edition guernsey for their ANZAC Day clash against the GWS Giants at Maunka Oval in Canberra.

For the first time since 2014, the Lions will play on ANZAC Day, with the last time coming against St Kilda in New Zealand.

Lions defender, Noah Answerth, who’s great grandfather George, served in Papua New Guinea during the second world war, was honoured to get the opportunity to play on ANZAC Day.

“It’s an honour to pay respect to our war heroes, along with the current serving men and women who have given our generation a country to grow up in and be able to play this great game,” Answerth said.

The guernsey will feature a red poppy flanked by rosemary, an ancient symbol of fidelity and remembrance, it grew wild on the Gallipoli peninsular where the ANZACs served in World War 1.

The red poppy is featured on the front of the jumper as the commemorative flower of remembrance and an acknowledgement of those who have served and sacrificed their life

“Lest We Forget” is emblazoned on the bottom of the back of the guernsey, a reminder that all who have served and are still serving should never be forgotten.

The Lions will wear the limited edition guernsey when they travel to the nation’s capital in round seven at Manuka Oval on Thursday, April 25 at 7:30pm.
