    I hope they don't go too far from this year. The solid colours are much better than the half black/white from last year.

    Let’s keep the same jersey design for decades, build a brand.

    Black shorts may help. Too much white.

    They like the all white for the early part of the season for the heat

    Here’s an alternative for the white.

    Or maybe they could do this, with a little less black

    I actually don’t mind the look of that.

    You could do that one with just a band of black in the middle, have the top half and bottom half white.

    People just won't let the hideous brown colour go. The colour that gave us the worst selling jersey in the ARL even when we had a gun team wearing it. Brandy and Freddy in their prime couldn't sell that colour, let alone the plodders we have now. This will do nicely in making sure youngsters in the riff follow the Tigers.

    The all white is a good jersey in the heat. It makes a massive difference to body temperature and we need all the help we can get. Myth busters measured a five degree difference between a black and a white identical cars stood out in the sun. I'm sure modern textiles will not quite be as bad as that, but 1 or 2 degrees can be the difference between winning and losing.

    We definitely need a white jersey, but it could do with some improvements. Agree with some earlier sentiments that it’s just too white.

    The old school one provides a little more definition, looks much better.

    I had that one when it came out. I just about wore it out. What an era that was. The 91 team was so good.

    I like the white strip. I seem to be the only one though.
