Looks like Swinton players' arms have got longer over the years. 😉

Yes, it's blue. But what shade of blue?

No-one's told me what colour that Huddersfield shirt is yet...

It's just missing a proper collar.

I take it there are no women in your house. My granddaughters have had a preference for using my old rugby shirts as nightwear. They prefer the ones without traditional collars ... which press into their necks.

Yes there are women in my household but none wear rugby shirts as night time attire.

From memory there was one other scene in that film where her attire was better!

New England cricket kit by New Balance launched today.

Not RL related obviously, but a good example of the kind of value working with a decent sports brand can have. Really not sure how New Balance get such good value out of their cricket partnership. I guess Cricket fans must be good when it comes to forking out for merchandise and replica.

Video below even makes Cricket like slightly exciting. Even though IMO the kit does look pretty average.

 

Always felt brands such New Balance and Umbro would be a great home for RL.

New Balance sell a lot of cricket bats and shoes, in addition to replica kit.

No doubt. I've just never thought Cricket would generate the kind of income for NB to warrant the kind of investment.

In comparison to apparel and hard products, footwear is incredibly expensive to produce, unless you are doing huge numbers.. Maybe they do. It just surprises me they generate such value from the Cricket partnership.

Certainly think RL could generate the same value if (and it's a big 'if') SL and the game in general can get its backside in gear.

It's a reasonably new investment as well, I think. I never assume that just because someone is pouring money in that they know what they're doing but they must have done some thinking. England cricket fans do like to wear the kit, even if not the ODI/T20 shirt itself then a lot of the training wear that goes alongside it.

For a company with their UK HQ in Warrington, they have had a surprisingly limited history in RL. They have made some Wire kits and a Saints kit IIRC.

Cricket is a massive market probably second only to soccer and the big north american sports.

The world cup and test cricket is shown on tv all over the world and you can sell clothing, shoes, kit bats pads as well as the usual merchandise.......all the big brands...Nike, Adidas, Puma, Canterbury etc are involved in cricket.

NB are primarily a footwear company expanding into everything else just like Nike and Adidas did.

Maybe if RL had more than kits and balls as specific equipment to sell we might get more interest although i doubt it with our profile.

The new one day kit in the video is a throw back design to the last time England made the final when they lost to Pakistan........Strange thing to commemorate but there you go.
