    Yes all their designs of that group of photos are terrible designs, but the one you've suggested isnt bad, just has the meriton sponsor covering the V, im pretty sure that would sell if they fixed a few alignment issues there, aswell as introduce the current chevrons they have on it instead, looks like a ESL jersey, they made one for the indigenous round last year, but ruined it by completely covering the rear and lower front in black, again to lessen the orange.

    Its like the whole superhero thing, in costume designs now, less on the completely black leather suits, more fans want the yellow spandex, that iconic classic look favored over the trendy gothic fashion

    This will be an unpopular opinion but I low key liked that white and grey Wests Tigers jersey.

    I'm not sure of the numbers, but anecdotally the Sharks Away jerseys usually sell pretty well - but that is probably down to them usually being black.

    A few Souths and Bulldogs players are also wearing pink skins underneath their shorts (they may all be wearing pink skins but only a few each side are visible)

    Purple shoulder panels, collar, cuffs and armpit panels for the refs tonight. Rest of their jersey is yellow paired with black shorts and socks.

    Edit; Only the back of the collar is purple

    Who decided pink and navy against pink and black was a good idea? They might be different shades and different ratios but come on now.

    That’s exactly why the Panthers should’ve just worn their away jersey!

    I think the Cowboy's original WIL round opponent before Corona showed up was meant to be St George at Kogarah and both of their home kits clash so they designed it with that in mind

    All is normal at Bankwest (Parra in home, Broncos in alternate) except White replaces Yellow on the ref's and touchies jerseys and the purple spots on the jersey remain in place

    Whoever allowed the NQ v Penrith kits to be on the field together needs a kick in the ass.

    Nope the Cowboys original WIL round opponent was the Panthers. The only difference being it was scheduled to be at Panthers Stadium not QCB stadium.

    Pink skins are under the shorts of Manly and Gold Coast players. Seems to be the most common part of this weekend's WIL round with a unusually low amount of themed jerseys for this year

    I wouldn't say "unusually" I think clubs are just moving away from it because we should get to a point soon where WIL round isn't a thing - women are so intrinsic to the game now (particularly with NRLW and state comp growth).

    As expected, Cronulla are in their WIL jersey, the pink looks like the primer I paint onto timber

    Here's a pic from a domestic Rugby Onion game in NZ yesterday.

    I really really hope we never get to the stage of having arsehole sponsorship in the NRL...

    Tbh I think the practice of splashing pink on a regular strip (eg Cowboys) is lazy.

    I'm sure club CEO's are already thinking there's another $400k a year..
