The Sharks WIL jersey looks like the Penrith 'allsorts' jersey displayed on a malfunctioning tv.

It's got that whole "the colour has gone bung" look about it.

That said, it's quite unique, and kinda psychedelic - quite fitting for a club that made it's first grade debut in 1967 :)

Will be interesting to see how it looks 'in game'. I actually like the photos I've seen, but the true test for a footy jersey is out on the field.

Not a fan of the extra 'partner' position that has been added for the 'Beauty Bank' on the Sharks WIL jersey.

What's with the extra sponsor on the chest?

I remember the Bullfilth having an extra sponsor on the lower back of their jersey and the NRL said they couldn't have it. Maybe Cronulla is just for WIL round?

I was about to say "it would be ok if it was a charity, but its just a f*cking bank".
Then i realised it actually is a charity.

Bloody hard to see though, you can tell they didnt pay for the spot...

I think it's clean and subtle, Doc. Could use an old school collar though.

It might just be that i only ever see Easts play on 9 (and we all know how terrible that broadcast is).

But for some reason, whenever i see that jersey, it doesnt inspire hate or excitement; just a pure boredom.

(Manly is the same.....)

I am one of the biggest defenders of traditional kits.
But I have to agree with HITD here, the Roosters jersey bores me too.

I much prefer their striped jerseys over the years.
And for some reason, I really dislike it when teams have a coloured jersey and white shorts (i.e. Roosters, Manly, old Titans). I think it looks weak. Would rather roosters in navy shorts and Manly in maroon shorts.

Titans look much better these days with matching shorts

Despite the Prince-Rogers photo there didn't the Titans ultimately match the shorts with the kit once it got onto the field?

First 2-3 years in the reebok jerseys they were white shorts

First 1-2 years adidas also white shorts

I think towards the end of the adidas deal they started wearing white shorts with the white away against teams like Cronulla

I'm no one to ever point out a jersey clash, I don't think they exist, but wow, did anyone just watch the Q cup? Showed a highlight of Sths Logan vs someone, both teams in black shorts and white jerseys. Almost identical...
