The new Wallaby jersey

So here's the new one

Thoughts?

Perfect. Undoubtedly some will decry the lack of a collar, green stripes on the sleeves, heavy cotton fabric, or any other minute difference between this and what they'd personally design, but really, what's not to like?

The only way to get a broadly positive reaction to a Wallaby jersey would be to produce a thousand different designs.

Well, screw the collar. Just something for those filthy kiwi bastards to grab onto and not be penalised for ;)

The colour looks better at least, and they got rid of the pinstripe southern cross thing. Simple, elegant, fucking GOLD.

Our jerseys have grip sections to assist control of the ball.

Even though it is not in the spirit of the game I wonder if a jersey for props to have a "hard to grip" section where opposing props bind? This could obviously be an issue in an attacking maul or ruck but may assist in getting scrum penalties.

I could be wrong but I thought the laws of the game had design requirements for front rowers jerseys that were aimed at teams not doing that. I could've completely imagined that up but.

Only thing for a supporter is the heavy cotton fabric, not worried about tradition or anything like that but in my youth at Uni in Armidale it was F^%$# cold but you could get on the piss in a good jersey and be reasonably warm. Light weight shit just wouldn't cut it. Also why I liked the long sleeves. But I'm just living in the past.

Agree.

To me the only thing I want to see is for the collar to be green again.

Mate, we're getting there. It's a bit green this season, next season the Revolutionary Change will be an all-green collar with white piping, the year after that it'll be all-green, no piping; but the year after that we'll change sponsor, and wear a green-and-gold tie-dyed singlet.

As long as they come with a supporter equivalent, that is one made in cotton/wool with a more realistic taper then I'm happy

What sponsor?

I really like the Junior Wallabies jersey. For me would be perfect as Wallabies jersey but I understand for some the jersey has too much green
