Ridiculous. It's as though they are doing it on purpose.
Why do the cowboys have green on their jersey against titans?
Beginning to wonder if the NRL is actually directing clubs to wear away jerseys in away games.
The NRL made them change from the reverse home strip (white vee and rest of the jersey blue) as their away jersey because they didn't think there was a big enough contrast with the home jersey. So that's why they had to go with the black.
It's got ridiculous.
From memory, the NRL consider our green jersey as a clash with the Titans shade of blue. Which I guess I can understand, but not when our alternate is that blue abomination.
So there's enough contrast between the 2 rabbitohs strips then?
I went to the game. Sitting in the top tier. It was BS.
I know it makes no sense but that's what Raelene Castle told the Bulldogs member at a AGM in 2015. Maybe the NRL are happy with the contrast between the white and black?
Souths have to have a third strip for when they play in Canberra.
Although Souths home and Canberra Home both have green, they don't clash. Canberras white accents against the rabbits black accents isn't a problem.
Canberra's accents are blue now aren't they?
Yeah they are, I meant the white shorts. When looking at the whole kit, the white shorts are prominent against the rabbitos black shorts
If the NRL's going to direct clubs what to wear even if it creates clashes, they may as well mandate that each club has a colour jersey and a white jersey. The home team decides to wear either colour/white then the away team has to wear the other. Least then there's a guarantee of no clashes regardless.
I caught up with the guy in charge of game day jerseys at the NRL
Most clubs have a white jersey. Canterbury and St George hardly need an away one TBH a change of shorts would cover most things. In fact when they play each other its just wear your home stuff for both teams.
Put the bullies in home tops, white shorts yesterday, no problems at all.
this isn't hard. Home teams wear their home strip, whoever is playing them wears a constrasting strip. Sometimes that will be a complete change and other times it maybe just a change of shorts or sometimes just their home strip too.
Manly/St George and Melbourne/Cronulla perfect example of how it should be. All 4 Sides playing in their regular home jerseys.
Panthers v sharks wasn't great
Umm they didn't wear that
