England Sevens 2014/15 Canterbury Home & Alternate Shirts

EngSevensHome

The RFU and Canterbury have unveiled the latest shirts the England Sevens team will be trotting out today. The timing of these releases always slightly befuddles us, as the IRB Sevens series has been in full swing for some time now – why release a new kit mid-season? That said, it’s freaking April – new shirt releases are proverbial rocking horse shit at this time of year, so we will seize upon it like a roomful of grannies on a bag of Murray Mints – thanks England!

New Zealand Warriors 2014 Canterbury Shirts

NZwarriorshome

The only NRL club outside of Australia have had quite the chequered history when it comes to jerseys, from the wicker basket effect, the Maori jade overkill, the green paint splatter, the pink paint splatter, the pink lady face, the New Zealand flag, the-whatever-the-fuck-this-is, and THE FUCKING VOLCANO! Just look at it! It’s quite a resume…

New South Wales Blues 2014 State Of Origin Classic Sportswear Shirt

NSWBluesFront

With only a smattering of internationals a year, the biggest events in rugby league are undoubtedly the Super League and NRL Grand finals, Challenge Cup and, above all, the State of Origin series Down Under.

Japanese sporting equipment manufacturer ASICS has been making waves in the rugby world in recent months.

All that changed in 2013, when ASICS signed up two of the biggest brands in world rugby Australia and South Africa – a real statement of intent that puts the brand, along with BLK, as a new major player in the rugby shirt world.  Continue reading

Queensland Maroons Canterbury State Of Origin 2014 Shirt

QLDfront

There are many reasons why the Queensland Maroons go into this year’s State Of Origin series on the back of eight straight successes over the New South Wales Blues. Having a squad that for years has contained the likes of Cameron Smith, Billy Slater, Greg Inglis and Jonathan Thurston, who formed the backbone of the Australian team that won the 2013 World Cup (and should have won in 2008 too) is a major one, though frankly having a much better jersey is the overriding psychological one (well, as far as we’re concerned).

Wigan Warriors 2014 ISC Home & Away Shirts

WiganHome

With the return of Super League upon us, to coincide with the imminent increase of pie sales and the M62′s carbon footprint we have decided to have a butchers at Wigan Warriors’ effort for 2014.

The team affectionately known as ‘The Cherry & Whites’ have had some questionable shirts over recent years and this seasons efforts could well go a long way to explaining why Sam Tomkins decided to leave the idyllic banks of the River Douglas for that absolute hellhole known as New Zealand… ahem… Continue reading
