I would say I have no words but actually:

Awful

Repugnant

Eye watering

Disgraceful

Cheap

Terrible

Woeful

I could go on but I may as well just do this 😱

It says it all about Oxen when you genuinely cannot tell if it's a joke or not. Both are equally plausible.

In got an email from them about a specially Wembley shirt.. open the email and it says "April fools".. not great, I only fell for it because 1 all I did was read an email and 2 I really though they'd done one because.. Oxen... 

As you say it says far too much about Oxen.

Anyone who follows sports brands on Instagram or Linkedin, or any other social media, might be aware that Patrick (teamsports) has re-launched in the UK and Ireland.

Rugby playing apparel is something they are actively pushing, maybe initially at semi-pro/amateur level. (much like Puma teamwear).  but i wonder if they may dip their toe in the professional market. I would have thought they'd certainly be able to compete with the current crop of kit suppliers in RL in the UK.

A quick google search reminded me that Patrick did supply a number of RL kits in years gone by. GB, Wales, Wigan and Leeds to name a few.

Can't actually recall if Patrick ever produced RL kits back in the day.

They definitely did around the turn of the century. Great Britain, Wigan, Leeds and maybe a few others

Think they did the GB jersey worn in Sydney when we got 70 put on us. Which was arguably the nicest use of a chevron on a GB shirt in he modern era.

The 2005 Leeds shirt made by Patrick is probably the best Leeds have had in the whole of SL era.

The 64-10 defeat in 2002 was in the Classic-made kits. Probably the best GB jersey since 1992. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&url=http%3A%2F%2Fnews.bbc.co.uk%2Fcbbcnews%2Fhi%2Fsport%2Fnewsid_2125000%2F2125017.stm&psig=AOvVaw10Shlck_L0EJNaK6QOYMLV&ust=1680627138575000&source=images&cd=vfe&ved=0CBAQjhxqFwoTCMjZxY6Wjv4CFQAAAAAdAAAAABAE

Patrick did the kits in 1999 (GB for the Tri-Nations) and 2000 (home nations in the RLWC).

Thankfully,I'm not a Giants adherent. The thought of John Smiths in my intestines gives me the shivers.

Was Patrick and JJB linked in some way?

 

Sports brand based in the north who sell the majority of their product into a certain sales channel, and a sports retailer based in the north - probably no more than that.

I would have thought back then Patrick product would have been stocked in JJB sports.

"However, JJB did operate its own brands, including 'Patrick' (menswear and football accessories), and 'Olympus' (womenswear and fitness accessories)."

from wiki so may be not be accurate.

Not originally but I seem to recall JJB buying the Patrick brand at some stage, similar to the way Sports Direct have taken over who knows how many distressed brands.

Pretty sure JJB owned Patrick by the end. If I remember correctly the Patrick branding on Wigan's shirts changed to a little JJB logo one season. 

I was born to run a club like this. Number 1, I do not spook easily, and those who think I do, are wasting their time, with their surprise attacks.
