1. Out Now:

    Here it is - the latest edition of The Front Row, our exclusive online e-magazine with a full wrap on last weekend's NRL and Super League along with the match programme for the coming round!

    This week Paul Jobber looks at the sacrifices made by the NZ Warriors as they prepare to head home after many long months keeping the NRL afloat by relocating to Australia, while Rob Crosby looks at the departing and retiring class of 2020 as many players make their exits. Rick's weekly finals column peaks with rankings of the top eight forward packs headed into the pointy end of the season.

    Add to that all the regular features you've come to expect - a full NRL Round 20, Super League Round 13 and Netherlands-Germany programme - and you have one fantastic 50-page magazine for your weekend's reading!

    Pros
    • Blue is closer to purple and compliments the two similar shades
    • Well distinguised from the Sea-Eagles brand
    • Evokes both fire and hawks effectively
    • Core colours don't include white
    Cons
    • Looks like the 36ers and Taipans merged
    • Logo is very tall and thin when the wordmark is included, will look odd on a jersey unless they don't plan to use the wordmark there
    • The flame part could be simplified as it looks like a tribal tattoo in 2 colour applications
    • May require keylines on the jersey
    Still a very solid start.

    I meant the 36ers logo with something similar to the Taipans' colours.

    Hopefully (if the team even gets the nod) it's just a trim/secondary and the jersey will be mostly red and gold

    My first thought was “what’s a firehawk”?

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firehawk

    I think that whatever they came up with there’d be criticism from many. For me I personally don’t like the name, but the logo is a good enough design..

    Colours look a combo of Brisbane and Gold Coast..although on closer inspection the blue looks purple.

    The firehawk name comes from here: https://www.nationalgeographic.com/news/2018/01/wildfires-birds-animals-australia/

    Took me a while but I don't mind the name firehawks, IMO thats cooler than the "Brisbane Bombers". Regarding the colour they will have orange and yellow in there given the fire and the fact that its essentially East Brisbane's bid.

    Yeah bombers just didn’t do it for me either.

    So, after the worst fire season in our history (in terms of size and scale), they’ve gone with an animal that spreads fires..... ???

    hmmmm.

    So now we know the colours (especially the *shades*), I guess we'll see some designers here putting forward their jersey ideas...? :)

    Yes it was definitely made for sale. A relative of mine bought one.

    No idea how difficult they are to find these days

    I read that the Orange = Tigers, and Blue+Yellow = City of Brisbane's colours

    Could be mate. Definitely don't profess to be across everything Rugby Union but does make sense to me, and maybe why it's the only kit I've seen em in this year.
