    This was the alternate (third) jersey a couple of years back, although I don't know that they wore it more than once.

    Edit: looks like more than one of us had this idea lol

    no mate, I absolutley hate it. We’ve had some shockers in our day but it’s our worst along side the 2008-2010 abstract bulls head one.

    I’m not one to harp on and say ‘old school’ is the best school, but NQ nailed it with the original 1995 jersey, and then into 1996 where they flipped the jersey upside down for the the home. Simple, classy and timeless.

    GazF has done a modern take on it, this shits all over ‘bullhorns on titties’ every day of the week.

    I'm surprised the Roosters haven't experimented more with their away/alternate jersey. Their home identity is so set in stone that the away jersey is really the only chance they have to try something new. Perhaps a white version of the hooped jerseys they've done?

    Not bad looking by any means, but a bit samey with previous designs used by other clubs. I like it, but think the horns (on white) are much more striking & memorable personally.

    I'm not being insulting here, but are you young? You seem to like the really gimmicky jerseys.

    I wasn't aware that existed. Yeah, closer to the away jersey V than the home jersey V.. but not far off last year's North Sydney home jersey in NSW Cup....

    Maybe the Roosters could use an alternate like the one you posted for games they take to Gosford? Makes sense, given the feeder-club arrangement they have with Norths now ;-)

    None taken, & in answer to your question, not as young as I’d like to be anymore! Pushing 35.

    In an age when you see grown men walking around in superhero-themed designs, who’s to say anymore? LOL.

    I like the sound of that idea. A new spin on a traditional design.

    Not likely. The Reject Shop brand is synonymous with quality.

    nope. 1999-2000. The 2000 era logo was integrated into the jersey much better. the 1999, not so much...

    1999

    2000

    we ran out for rd1in the 1999 season without a main jersey jersey (christ, where does 20 years go????!!!!) at Penrith in the darker away. It took a few weeks to sort a deal out, the sponsor name was kept very hush hush. I remember watching the game at a pub in sydney when commentators on fox mentioned the NQ club had just secured a major sponsor and would be wearing it for the first time that night.

    I was pretty excited and was jawing off at my mates that were watching with me. Bundy had been thrown around as a potential taker, as well as a few other more known brands.

    As the players ran out ran out onto the field I could not believe my f**king eyes. And then the western cameras panned across the field and these new huge sky blue goal post protectors also were branded with the hideous ‘Overflow’....... my team was now sponsored by a f**king $2 shop. My completely clueless mates were hosing me deluxe when they asked me ‘wtf an Overflow was?’.....

    It was about the time I realised I probably wasn’t going to have a team in
    the comp much longer.

    They nearly went bust the following 2 years. Was absolutley f**ked times being an NQ fan back then.

    Absolute cracking Jersey.

    Only further proves that simpler the design the better a jersey looks.

    i edited that original post mate, apologies.

    I’d say at least the 99/2000 strip had an excuse. Clubs were trying to be all futuristic and ‘Y2k’...... ‘bulls on titties’ has zero excuse.
