For the sake of argument, I would also prefer teams to stick to their proper colours (i.e. Warrington in primrose and blue should only really wear an away kit at Leeds and sometimes Castleford and Catalans if they have shirts with lots of yellow on) but I realise that that doesn't sell shirts, as fewer people buy a shirt that might only be worn twice..


It gets my goat. The wife sees the colours and waits for me to explode.
We are Primrose and Blue, Wigan are Cherry & White, Hull are Black & White etc. unless there is a clash of colours that's what they should wear. As for situation whereby two colours are similar ... the colours should be checked prior to the game. There is no excuse.

I’m pretty sure it went before the bbc who had no objections to the kit colours.


Why should the BBC have any say over a clash of colours? That ought to be down to the RFL.

We played Hull FC away a few years ago. Them in black and white shirts, black shorts; us in red and black shirts, black shorts. Daft.

It was picked up in advance the problem was we won the right to wear our home colours, so it was on Leeds who had stupidly that year decided to do an away shirt in their home colours, and not consider a guaranteed clash with an opponent that year.

Chances are we were asked to play in our red and green away shirt and we probably told them to get stuffed, its a final, dont willingly back down on anything in a final.


I was informed that Wire had, in fact, offered to play in our 'away' green kit but the RFL turned us down.

I would have a primrose and blue hooped home jersey (ok on occasional years you could spice it up with vertical stripes like the Davies MoS season), and a white away jersey with a blue/primrose V. Then have a third kit, in black with luminous pink lettering that says FECK THE RFL. Then see how often we are forced to wear the third kit.

Yep, I agree and my angle has always been that we play in PnB, and if we need a colour change, it should be an alternative strip...but I also bow to the merchandising if they think that 2 kits a season will profit better than one, who am I to argue.

It's acceptable to a point, I also understand and support the need to boost revenues.

But when the boneheads dress us in red and black at Hull FC, or red and green at Saints in a year when the Saints have a lot of red on their kit, it annoys me.

I thought your pov was in favour of white kits, you used to mention that a lot

I don't get the weird problem with playing Hull in a bright Red and Black kit if they're in a White and Black kit. Not exactly hard to tell teams apart is it? They're drastically different colours, bit of an odd one to pick out and complain about.
