Description

The logo for the Australian National Rugby League team the Canberra Raiders is the head of a Viking warrior wearing a horned helmet. The hair and beard of the Viking has a green tinge to match the colour of the team’s jumpers. The helmet features a rugby ball logo between the eyes. A Viking warrior was presumably thought to be a good match for a team calling themselves ‘Raiders’ as the historical Vikings were famous for raiding much of Europe in the period 800-1000.
