Nope sorry that is just wrong. England should always wear a predominantly white shirt.

 

I know merchandise is a big thing but there has to be a limit. Think Aus and NZ in RL - Brazil and Argentina in Football.

I agree with Boris.............. but I really like this shirt................ is it a one off?

 

Being sold on Lovell Rugby.....would have thought they would have worn it today if it was the new jersey though....maybe in Melbourne on Sunday?

Hoping to secure extra geek points if correct, but might it be some sort of centenary thing to mark 100 years since the 1914 Rorke's Drift Test? That's my guess anyway.

Good call

Do people like the idea of new kits?

Are people happy with them or more disappointed generally?

Would anyone prefer their club shirt stay the same for a season or two?

The Red Devils ones looks like someone made a mistake and no amount of pre-ordering would entice me to buy those two, maybe the real thing will look better?

There is something very RL about the idea that we've signed a great kit deal but the product's rubbish!

It is amazing that the Webb-Ellis nonsense is even perpetuated in a book about one of our finest moments! But then again John Wayne relayed the story in a film too - It's a bit like a tory politician slimy but resilient! I was amazed to find out one of the players in the test was from Wolverhampton! 

Should I just take myself to the cross code naughty step now?

It looks too much like Wigan/Leigh shirt to me.

I agree, is it an accident or by design?

Re: the commemorative England shirt.

Is our sport's heritage really so lost on so many of our fans?

 

Agree, but how has this crept up on us? We are as avid a bunch of RL fan as there is out there? Why the secrecy?

If you try to start creating a shirt that looks "RL" enough, and the two colours you have on your palette are red and white, you start having problems.

 

Mostly RED - would clash with Wales. Not a huge problem but you'd want to stand out a little from your geographically closest/traditionally strongest NH rivals

White/red hoops - too much like Wigan/Leigh for some fans.

White with Red Vee - too much like Saints for some fans.

White with red band - too much like HKR for some fans.

 

I've often wondered if Arsenal fans have a problem with the England kit looking too much like Tottenham's, or Blackpool fans refusing to wear the three lions because it looks like Preston's gear.

 You can see the names in the fabric under the sponsor. Billy Hall, Harold Wagstaff... It must be the Rorke's Drift jersey.
