im pretty sure the numbering standard is set by the nrl, nothing to do with manufacturers
rumours starting to floati around that ISC are going to completely pull out of NRL and AFL as of next year.
I'd love for the teams to use the old Westmont template from the late 80's and early 90's. Very clear and a classic design.i honestly don’t know, but the bulldogs did maintain the solid numbering when most (possibly all) the others went to this bordered style.. I wouldn’t have thought the NRL stipulated it though. Does anyone know/can confirm?

Best close-up I can find so far.
They managed to do a cut through on the design for the Toyota sponsor on the front, but couldn’t achieve the same on the back...That Dragons numbering is my personal favourite. But these days jumpers don't really get dirty like they did back then. A solid numbering with an "outline" like that is great for mine, just not this bordering scheme currently used. I absolutely agree with the bloated comment from @sempmrh above.
A number should also always be distinctive from the pattern/style of the jersey. Easily seen from the sideline or stands. Light-on-dark or Dark-on-light is a simple formula. But it staggers me that some clubs have numbering that is difficult/impossible to distinguish watching the game... The Current NQld home kit is a current example.... Looks great up close but from afar, it can be a blur of blue with some grey in there somewhere..

Maybe they could bring back the solid colour box clubs have had in the past if they really want the number to be the same as the top half of the jersey?
