Too close to the Tiges and the purpley blue just doesn't fit with the orange. I get that they are playing for the east tigers heritage but a new colourway would be needed.
keep the orange for the fire/tigers and maybe team it up with a medium blue ?
I *love* it! If Wests Ashfield don't wanna use orange as a primary colour in the Wests Tigers jerseys (for whatever reason), then it's fair game for an expansion team to use it as THEIR primary colour in their home jersey. It still means only two clubs feature orange in their colours, anyway..
I'd keep the blue dark or royal blue.. certainly stay away from navy, and blue with black looks fine. And make sure the orange stays orange. It looks a slightly more sandy tone than the Tigers orange (which is ok), but I wouldn't want it any more sandy or burnt-orange than that.
The tone of orange hits the right balance between being bold and not being too cartoony.
If you wanna see what I mean by 'cartoony', check out the blue/orange/white short-lived 'Central Vikings' rugby team (Hawkes Bay/Manawatu merger) that existed in NZ RU for a few seasons...
