2018 Kits

I remember when the BBC wouldn't tolerate adverts on jerseys (above a certain size?). I seem to recall them going to Odsal to televise a Bradford game and they wouldn't show the game because the sponsor's name was just a little bit too big. Am I right or is that a false memory?

I recall the BBC giving "too much sponsorship" as a reason for not showing the Bathurst 1000 any more, after broadcasting extended highlights for a couple of years.

The only RL club gear they do (so far) is Huddersfield, with a 1933-inspired polo shirt.

£60 for a hoodie? What are they made of? Rarest Peruvian alpaca wool with a hood lining of guinea pigs fed only on a rare Andean flower?

The comment regarding Fev having the first sponsor got me wondering when this happened so I looked up the 83 cup final and Hull and Fev were unsponsored but the following year Wigan had JJB Sports and Widnes Stanley Leisure. So perhaps the followers of other clubs can remember their first sponsors and if they still exist. Wigan had JJB Sports followed by Norweb and neither exists these days.

What's going on with Castleford's jerseys next year? They are practically identical. Are they ever going back to their proper colours?

Smart F.C. shirt. I’m always puzzled as to why sometimes sponsor logos aren’t integrated better. The one above the badge would look much better an inch higher so not going across the line of the design. Same with the one on the left. Move it up or down and it’s in the design

I know I’m being picky. ?

It's an excellent shirt, instantly recognisable, but if we're picking faults I tend to agree with you.

Oh. I’m not saying it detracts from the shirt. Just minor irritations for me that could be easily avoided 

Proper RL shirt

Bin the black shorts.

I think there is some sort of RFL requirement for them to have the alternate shorts available.

I think they were sponsored by then, but wore an sponsored kit for the final.

Rovers sponsorship by Linpac started in 1980. Not sure if it was the same year as Liverpool FC started football shirt sponsorship in UK with Hitachi or not. After two years it stopped (1982/83 our Wembley year) then started again the following season right through the rest of the 1980s. Two or three years ago they came back as shirt sponsor after a 20 odd year gap.
