Show your support for the Gold Coast Titans and Cam’s Cause with our 2023 Gold Coast Titans Replica ANZAC Round Jersey.
This special jersey shares the story of Corporal Cameron Baird VC, MG, and commemorates the tenth year since his death whilst serving for our country in Afghanistan.
Doug Baird OAM (Cameron’s father) says it was very important for the family to work with the Titans to ensure the jersey depicted Cameron’s experience.
“We have worked closely with the Titans on this design and we are very proud of the result.
“Cameron would be humbled by this design, and we know the players will treat this jersey with the respect it deserves.
“The jersey depicts Cameron at the front of joint efforts on the battlefield where he proudly represented his country.”
This jersey proudly boasts the Cam’s Cause logo above the club emblem on the left chest, and the line “Aspire to Inspire – CSBVCMG” across the back collar of the jersey. With a subtle camo print at the top of the jersey, the design then blends down into a silhouette of soldiers and helicopters in the background. In the foreground, taking pride of place, is a stylised image of Cameron Baird himself, based off a photo of Cameron while in service.
Cam's Cause is a non-for-profit organisation founded in memory of Corporal Cameron Stewart Baird VC, MG, who was a member of the Special Operations Task Group and was from the 2nd Commando Regiment based at Holsworthy Barracks in Sydney, New South Wales. Corporal Baird, who was shot dead leading his team to safety during a battle, was an outstanding Special Forces soldier. He lived by the attributes of uncompromising spirit and honour, constantly inspiring those around him to achieve greater things. Corporal Baird died how he lived; at the front, giving it his all, without any indecision.
Following the ANZAC Round game, each Titans player will sign their match worn jersey and these will be auctioned, with half of the proceeds to be donated to Cam’s Cause.
Commencing in the 2021 NRL ANZAC Round fixture, the Gold Coast Titans have awarded the Corporal Cameron Baird VC, MG Memorial Trophy to the person on the field that exemplifies leadership in the way Cameron did with his demonstration of service, selflessness and sacrifice which has been presented post-game by Doug and Kaye Baird. Past winners of the award include AJ Brimson in 2021 and Tino Fa’asuamaleaui in 2022. At the time of his death, Cameron was a Titans member and his parents Doug and Kaye are still members to this day. On the eve of the 10th anniversary of Cameron’s death (22 June, 2013), the Gold Coast Titans will carry Cameron’s legacy when facing The Dolphins during NRL’s ANZAC Round on Sunday 23rd April at Suncorp Stadium.
Doug Baird OAM has been engaged with the club and players around ANZAC Round for the past few years and said, “I’ve been proud to tell Cameron’s story to the playing group over the last few seasons and this year with the help of this jersey design, I look forward to sharing Cameron’s story with the wider Rugby League community as part of NRL’s ANZAC Round.”
