The new year might barely be upon us, but for rugby league fans that means one thing – that the new Betfred isn’t too far away now. And while we might have to wait 31 January 2019 for Super League XXIV to actually kick off, that hasn’t stopped various teams from revealing their brand new jerseys.
So to whet your appetite for the 2019 season, here’s every new jersey revealed for the new Super League season so far:
Cass will certainly be looking classy once again in 2019 thanks to this stunning orange and black hooped shirt from XBlades.
The away shirt is an interesting (and possible a bit too close to the home) design that features a black-to-orange fade, while there’s also a poppy-laden remembrance jersey.
The Challenge Cup winners in 2018 will be taking their good feelings into 2019 with a new kit sponsor in the shape of O’Neills, and things are looking pretty fresh.
There’s a white primary jersey with a red chevron and v’d collar, while the change is red, yellow and white, complete with striking accents on the ribs.
The Giants are keeping things very modern for 2019, mixing up their classic maroon home shirt and gold chevrons with an interesting blocky pattern around the shoulders
The black away shirt has a similarly futuristic sky blue, white and grey pattern that dominates the jersey front.
It won’t surprise us if fans of other Super League fans have a bit of kit envy looking at what the Airlie Birds are sporting in 2019 both at home and away.
The home shirt is a wonderful black and dark grey tonal hooped design, while the away is a nice blue and black chevron’d jersey.
The Robins will be wearing white primarily in 2019, with a selection of red camo stripes that go across the front, side and sleeves.
The away shirt is blue with white stripes, while there’s also a primarily red remembrance jersey.
The Rhinos are sporting a modern take on their classic blue and gold home jersey in 2019, with the traditional thick gold band featuring a series of pinstripes on either side of it.
The away on the other hand is black with a sky blue segment at the top of the shoulders and a tonal chevron pattern throughout.
The Broncos are back in Super League for the first time since 2015, the 2018 promotion winners will be keeping things broadly clean and simple for their top flight return.
The home shirt is black with a simple white and red double chevron, while the red away jersey has an interesting faded double chevron to mix things up.
Salford Red Devils
The Red Devils have rarely been a club that does things the conventional way in recent years, and their home and away shirts certainly stand out from the crowd.
Made by Kappa, the home shirt features a pair of vertical stripes on the left hand side, while the away shirt features a football-style red and white sash.
Saints will be keeping things suitably classic thanks to O’Neills once again, with a home shirt that keeps the double red chevron exactly where it ought to be (even if some fans would prefer a deeper, old-school chevron).
Away wise things are much less normal, and rather lovely too – the dark to light blue fade design with a thin dark blue chevron is one of the nicest shirts in Super League this season.
Wakefield will continue to wear a colour-swapped version of their traditional home shirt design this season, with the classic white swapped with blue, but the distinctive triple band across the chest retained.
The away shirt is grey with black sleeves and shoulders, plus a rather lovely looking white and yellow double chevron.
The Wolves have an interesting pair of jerseys for 2019 – the home shirt ditches the simplicity of last season for a shirt that’s part hoops, part pinstripes.
The away shirt can be best described as ‘outdoorsy’ with its mix of drab grey and olive and a vaguely ‘hunting outfit’ pattern to the dark grey segment.
Things could not be more classic on the home shirt front for the 2018 Champions, and that’s never a bad thing when Wigan is concerned – those red and white hoops are iconic for a reason.
The away shirt is more modern but equally tasteful – the dark blue base jersey is accented by some very lovely electric blue pinstripes and accents, ensuring that the Warriors will be dressed like champions in 2019.
