What happened to Toronto Wolfpack's black strip?

Recommended Posts

One of my favourite things about the Wolfpack when they first started was their branding, especially their all black home kit. It was one of the best kits out there.

Now they seem to have abandoned those colours and no longer wear the all black.

Can anyone from the Wolfpack support explain why? They seem to have a grey and black kit and then an alternative red kit that they now use.

This year the black kit (with white stripes) is the away kit. The white one (with red & black trim) is for home, and the red one is the alternate, worn on special occasions (and almost always when we play Toulouse!).

I think it's disgusting that they don't wear the black strip,no way should they be allowed in super league,Perez promised they would wear black and develop homegrown players to wear black. What about the lack of away fans not wearing black? Any tv deals can be kissed goodbye if they aren't in black, etc etc. That should save at least 20 pages and save parky,Harry and man of Kent and a few others a bit of time

We have a Prime Minister who wears all black, they wanted to break association with him!

Well he and Trump both have one thing in common:

They are both in love with themselves.

In America they say: "Make America Great Again"

In Canada we say: "Make Trudeau a Drama Teacher Again"

But its wrong!!! We should be angry, not go to the games because they are on TV, and definitely be outraged that we don't have NRL, forget SL, quality players 3 years into existence. And don't t get the started on not yelling at the ref or actually being nice to the opposing fans/players...not proper RL. They have bene doing their best keeping the game as backwoods as possible and here we are trying to make it mainstream, ruining over a hundred years of squandering resources.

As a London fan, take my advice. It's not good to keep changing the colours of the home kit constantly. Potential fans and casuals will lose track of the identity of the club. 

By the way this isn't a whinge at the Wolfpack, they just should've stuck to their old design.

I expect it from the flat caps but it's really sad to see a couple of French RL fans on this forum recycling the same arguments once used against Catalans and Toulouse to denigrate Toronto.

This year's promotion place aside, Toronto and the French teams should be on the same side fighting the same enemies.

I asked a similar question in their first season as I think even at that stage they wore white as the home kit despite the pre-launch marketing suggesting black was their colour.  I don’t think it’s a 2019 change.

New Zealand Warriors seem to completely change their colours every season or two as well, they should pick one (preferably black) and stick to it.

Wolfpack have been practically giving away this season's shirts - you got one free with a season ticket purchase and there's a 50% discount in the store.

Sounds like there will be a new strip if/when Super League.

Agreed and sort of suited the "wolfpack" theme.

I think the old white shirt (with the wolf) was awesome, the black with the wild was kinda weird looking to me, but different strokes for different folks

not a huge fan of this season's kit (except the red!)
