Just watching the game now on Premier Sports. What's puzzling me is that the tigers players are all wearing different coloured socks. Anyone know why this is so?

Haven't seen this match so can't be sure but they did something similar last year.

IIRC it was to acknowledge the players junior clubs. Some players even had two different coloured socks on if they had played for a few junior clubs.

Sounds a little like the RU Barbarians tradition of wearing their club's socks. Nice touch, actually.

It was the socks of their junior clubs. Robbie Farah, I think, was wearing two different socks.


In the same game, Canberra were wearing special socks supporting the Men of League organisation.
