    Severely underrated combo. But Aussie fans baulk at brown.

    Its a pretty constrained situation for a new team in Brisbane, if they're looking to really set themselves apart in their market:
    • Light blue - too close to Titans
    • Dark blue - too close to Cowboys
    • Any other shade of blue - half the league
    • Dark red to brown - too close to Broncos
    • Gold - all Qld teams have it, Broncos use it as their away colour
    • Black/white/greys - fairly dull as an option and the Panthers and (usually) Warriors own that look
    I reckon green, orange, or red are the way to go in Qld. Jets would naturally go for green. Redcliffe would go red.

    Easts would prefer orange, but you could split the diff between red and orange with vermillion to distinguish from Wests Tigers and the Roar. Plus if fits the Firehawks branding well.

    The colours - yes.
    The *shades* of those colours - NO

    To reiterate what I've said before.

    For the Firehawks jersey to work IMO it needs to be...
    Burnt orange, not dayglo orange.
    Royal or mid-blue, not navy blue

    Orange and royal/mid blue remind me of varsity football teams. De-saturate the blue a bit and we're in agreeance.

    Would love the new team to have dark green and white. Would only need a clash jersey for Souths and Canberra.

    Gold Coast should've stuck with the teal and orange even after dropping the Dolphins mascot. They had a truly marketable brand with those colours, far better than what they went with.

    Celtic’s design is pretty much the traditional Ipswich jersey (although Ipswich has slightly darker green)

    Slightly more to that story than just a local rivalry.

    Yep. But the results would be similar.

    sad, apart from the name "Western" which was dropped, the colours, animal, and sun on the shorts/throughout merch was f**ken awesome..

    i just cant see Firebirds/Hawks taking off at all. And we have the netball side anyway...
    yep, its 10x better than the bombers, but they will need SOMETHING, which none of us here have nailed... at the moment they would come in and just be a 'meh' like the crushers were..

    that was actually mine, decided to get rid of all my reds stuff and focus on the other teams i collect.

    rumours starting to floati around that ISC are going to completely pull out of NRL and AFL as of next year.

    its going to be an interesting 18 months to see what happens to all of these manufacturers who are struggling with teams turning away completed stock

    All mentions of ISC being a sponsor were removed from the Storm website recently. I fully expect us to be wearing another brand next year despite there being (I believe) another year to run on our deal. ISC has been making strange moves recently - producing gear for teams but not sponsoring them.

    I would like to see Puma producing gear for the NRL again. Their gear for their AFL teams looks to be of a fairly high standard.

    Nice work mate..

    Will be interesting to see how things pan out. And as a personal preference, I trust the new manufacturers move away from the hideous numbering designs on all jerseys these days. Dunno if that emanates from ISC or others, but take me back to solids please..

    Cracking collection there!

    I bought my reds jersey of a guy with probably the best Reds collection I’ve seen.. and probably the best of any RL club going around.

    im pretty sure the numbering standard is set by the nrl, nothing to do with manufacturers

    What hits the mark for some doesn't work for others. Firehawks isn't too bad, not perfect to me but I see a lot more people liking that name than some of the alternatives.

    For the record I'd go Brisbane Kookaburras playing in brown, white & light blue or just Brisbane Brown Snakes in Brown with white trim. As mentioned though Brown seems to be on the nose even though it can look cool as f**k. Also Kookaburras would probably get shut down by Hockey.

    Failing that the Dark Green/Mint & Black posted a while back for the Hunter Mariners mock was mint.
