    It's blindingly simple. White Bunny & collar, black shorts, no side-panels.

    Maybe next jersey cycle they'll decide to go "back to the future" in a similar way to how the Bulldogs tweaked their design to align it with a classic look.

    The alternate/away can be totally different - make it mostly white, or mostly red.. put sidepanels on it.. whatever. But the primary jersey HAS to be this sometime soon, surely??

    While ever they persist with two major sponsors, this jersey strategy will continue.

    and it’s been over a decade now. So I wouldn’t hold your breath

    My approach would be "Souths should wear their classic jersey for ALL home games, and a distinct alternate in some away games (maybe half a dozen games per year.. the most clash-y ones)".

    Of course that's not accounting for indigenous/ANZAC/retro.. but that's the gist of it.

    Although as Saint Doc says, their two-major-sponsors arrangement makes it tough to do.. as both sponsors want to be seen on the stripes.

    Definitely better looking than the home jersey. I like it

    Souths jerseys definitely look better with white trim.
    The Auckland 9's jersey from 2015 would be the perfect alternate.

    "teams should have an iconic design and wear it as much as practically possible"

    "there should also be a sufficiently contrasting design for cases where the above isn't practical"

    Blue shorts, with one pair of black shorts. I like it.

    Jersey nerd equivalents to us were writing handwritten letters to the editor complaining about that in the rugby league week forums back in the day.

    if we are gonna cater for the colour blind, which we should i guess, every sport on earth needs a re jig.
    but for 96% of the population, Rabbitohs clash with nobody

    Pretty much every other team sport (where this could be an issue) already polices uniform clashes in a proper manner. Just a re-jig for one club in the NRL.

    Imagine the stink Souths would kick up if the NRL actually tried this though?

    Away jersey looks slick. Was there any point in Souths history where they went close to going away from the Xmas colours or the Rabbit? Bulldogs obviously went from Country Bumpkins/Berries, Manly possibly from Seagulls, Bluebags to Jets etc

    Eels away will have yellow background on NRL logo. Previous pictures had the Blue background, must have used a picture of last years jersey and added the chest sponsor.

    Well they had a few years (1990s-early 2000s) where they went through a few mostly-black or mostly white alternates. Still had red & green as minor colours/trim though.

    Then there was that era in the '70s when they wore the traditional jersey with green shorts.....

    I prefer the blue version of the logo on the pre-production image. I think the Telstra Premiership logo looks best with a contrasting background.

    Canberra raiders in home green vs souths in away white strip are the closest clash, but that wouldn't happen

    Which was very ugly, but a cool throwback if they ever brought it back for a heritage game or something

    Yeah, Souths in green shorts would be a bit of a hoot. I think I saw some old clips of the Sharks in light blue shorts too (about early 1980s?). That matching-shorts look is kinda weird but a nice novelty.
