What's your favourite RL shirt ever?

Recommended Posts

Pretty much in the thread title, just wondering what people's favourite RL shirt of all time is. 

For me it's the 94 GB shirt. Love that shirt, I think cos its a bit nuts like a lot of shirts were around that period. Such an iconic shirt as well. Still frequently sit around the house wearing that one and checking myself out in the mirror as I wander past cos it just looks so good! I wear it to England games as well! Great quality, thick, cotton material, proper collar and I like the old style longer sleeves that cover the elbow. They don't make them like that anymore. 

So what are other people's favourite shirts?

Probably Wigan 93/94. Ellegren i think it was. First shirt i ever purchased.

Got a lot of time for the Penrith shirt of around the same time.

I was going through my shirt collection the other day, I was shocked how many I had (that I don't wear) and how quickly time goes, I've got every Leeds home shirt from 1999, that's bloody 20 years which shocked me a bit, anyway I can't really give a favourite shirt because they fall into 2 categories to me, favourite as in actual design wise, and favourite as in which mean a lot to me, Leeds shirts... these 3, purely because they bring back great memories of Watching some great games with my Dad who sadly passed in 2001...

 

Apart from the pretty traditional one they're pretty horrid though

But for actual favourite designs I think early 2000s GB shirt is up there, and as much as it pains me to say it The Aussie shirt is just iconic and pretty much perfect.

Cronulla Sharks 1997 - the one with the Pepsi logo.  Loved the colours and they were such an exciting team to watch with Rogers, Richardson, ET etc when they came over here to play in the World Club Challenge.

Mine is probably the Paramatta jersey in the 80's but I also really liked the North Sydney one as well.

That picture surely contains two of the worst kit designs ever. That is probably my least favourite, non-shark themed, Hull shirt ever. What I said in my original post though, early 90s shirts were a bit crazy!

Agree about the OZ Jersey and the mid 00s Lions. Or the Lions shirts in general. The Kangaroos Jersey is iconic and so is the Lions.

Has to be 2019 Warrington away. Such an on-trend melange.

Grey and green hasn't worked so well since Bruce Banner took a steady office job to calm his nerves and someone stole his lunch from the fridge on his first day.

Yes they’re both awful designs! The early 90s had some shockers! But my favourites for reasons other than aesthetics ?

Good choice that’s my favourite GB shirt. Not sure if that’s also because of its association with a rare victory though.

The Aussie one is a great design too.

I don't really have a favourite as there are so many to choose from , I think when I was a young child the kits colours and designs were one of the many things that initially sparked my interest in the sport.  I do have a preference for retro shirts with quite minimalist design.

The Norths shirt was a favourite, gave it to a cousin when it got too small alas, all time favourite has to be the Balmain Phillips shirt, so simple, so perfect?
