    The Masked Panther column is reporting that we will be switching from Classic to O'Neills next year.

    Interested to see it as they make some decent RU kicks. We'd be the first in the NRL to have them as a supplier wouldn't we?

    I wonder if Under Armour will make a jersey soon also given they've just made their first step into the Aussie market with Sydney FC.

    I went to the asics factory last week to get some penrith gear only to be told penrith pulled the asics contract because it was costing too much to make the gear.Penrith left asics and went with classic but weren't happy that classic stuffed up some big orders.They were gonna go back to isc but instead have agreed to a deal with oneills ive never heard of them so lets see how this pans out.

    good, classic’s collars are bad anyway. they took a very long time to ship the white away jerseys in too. hopefully o’neill’s is good

    Hopefully they improve the cut... got the new home jersey and the collar looks like it's been stretched too much and I feel like I need to wear a black shirt or jumper under it.

    I read on the jersey and logo thread on the NRL forum that ISC may be going under?

    O’Neill’s do Catalan’s & Leigh Centurions jerseys, and people reckon they’re really good.


    I just hope the design for the main black jersey stays largely the same for a long time, we should really entrench the brand.

    i hope they make the licorice colours more prominent on the jersey next year. it’s quite hard to see the colours stand out from a distance. this year’s home jersey is almost perfection though don’t get me wrong

    They talked about this in 2017. While it hasn't changed dramatically it also hasn't stayed the same. Its worth something in terms of sales, would have been the major push behind the new blues away jumper.

    I think they did away with our 2016 colours way too quickly. The black and gold was fantastic.

    Not certain but I'd probably put my money on To'o.

    Our fastest player at the club would have to be a guy called allan fitzgibbon he was playing for st marys earlier this yr then had a hand full of canterbury cup games playing on the wing.Built like josh ado carr and similar running style ive got no doubt hes the quickest you can youtube him and see some of his tries very quick.

    Manly are a pretty decent side tbh. Underrated backrow, one of the best starting engine rooms in the comp. Tommy T and Dylan Walker are weapons. Tafua no slouch. DCE putting his touch on everything.

    No depth at all but Hasler just turns average players into good players. Cade Cust is doing a great job for them. Injuries are the only thing that will keep them out of the 8.

    If they can make finals week 2 they will challenge any team they come up against.

    Check out this jersey someone asked about on Reddit. The answer is in the comments.
