I’m honestly not a Wakey basher. I’d love to see Wakey prosper as a club on and off the pitch.

My views on this would be the same with any club, even the club I support.

Good. Thanks for that, but there are a lot that are. A few months could remove some of their reasons, hopefully . 

Other than the ground, which they have tried to solve for 20+ years, and the related attendance figures, Wakefield do a lot right as an SL club.

Elite academy producing players, a reserve team when others didn't want one, women's, PDRL, LDRL teams, some excellent community work, a successful college team, a top-line sponsor and other commercial links and all keeping financially within their means without a sugar daddy to bail them out...

Should the planning permissions get through soon, the club will be in a much stronger position going forward.

Lots of things to be proud of their mate.

I think its horrid, looks like a cheap training top.

Judging by Facebook comments I’m in the minority.

I don't think it's terrible, but neither is it something I'd buy. Naff collar as usual. IT doesn't say "this is Leeds" to me like a white or pink/blue one would do (and yes I know pink and blue didn't say that when it was first introduced but it became established whereas I'm sure this scheme will be for one year only).

Smart that . West’s Magpies / New Zealand look and I like those jerseys 

I think it looks great! I'm less sure that it looks like Hull FC.

Oxen as a company just exude a sense of cheapness, the fact they have so many clubs and the national team just gives the game such a tin pot feel. The only way clubs will take note is if supporter's don't buy the tat, while ever we do the quality is going to get pushed and pushed until the knock off football shirts you find in souvenir shops on holiday will look and feel luxurious in comparison.

To be fair I don’t usually buy the away kit as they are generally awful and nothing ti do with the Leeds colours.

If it was just white with the blue and  amber hoops (like the 2015 wembley shirt) id have one, well I wouldn’t because Oxen  don’t seem to make them in my size, but that’s another issue.

England RU Coach Eddie Jones : "I spent a bit of time up at Hull and I like the full back there Connor, he's a tough, skilful player"

Jake Connor : "I've never played Union, it doesn't look that hard, you never say never but it looks too boring for me"

This, 100%, Oxen stuff is cheap tat, they shouldn’t be anywhere near the England stuff (nor the Rhinos IMO)

The Umbro stuff for England RU is quality and looks classy.

It’s a real bugbear of mine

I think if you had showed me it without the badges and without the players modelling it I'd have just assumed it was a Wakefield shirt.

The 2021 shirt was the best we've had in ages but as my good friend OF points out, the club have a history of giving the irregular hoops a rest every so often. Makes them seem even more special when they come back.

I think the 2022 shirt looks great and my Hull FC supporting Kiwi mate will love it for obvious reasons.

Daft thing is, I don't buy replica's even if I like the design as the material is awful, if they made it out of better quality,  I'd actually pay more for it.

Hull is nice. Even though I’m not a fan of the Hummel jerseys. I don’t mind the Leeds one at first glance. I’m quite a fan of a geometric print.

Seen a lot worse from Oxen.
