    Western Force Jerseys 2021

    Not as diabolical as the blurry image a week or so back indicated, not a big fan of the Away strip and I hope the Goodyear on the side panels isn't on the retail version.

    Also I hope the main sponsor isn't a giant size as has been the case with some other pro-sides around the traps.

    Personal opinion but I'd prefer the retail/supporters version to be cleaner eg less or no sponsors.

    I referring to the fact that the Force is getting money from more than just the Forrest Family. That has to be a good thing.

    I've got no problem with where the money comes from, any sponsor is great given the struggles for a naming rights sponsor before the axe fell in 2017. I also don't have a problem with the players looking like a billboard on field because that's what the sponsors are paying for.

    I just wish retail versions were cleaner, pet peeve across a lot of the sporting codes more than anything.

    The Force Polo I saw on Instagram tonight is a beauty.

    Yes, A couple years ago (Super rugby years) we couldn’t get a major sponsor and now we’ve even got underarm sponsors!

    Would not be surprised if supporters gear is not a contract condition. Probably more surprised were it not.

    I don't doubt it given sponsors have been on supporters jerseys across most codes since the 90's (my memory doesn't go past there).

    The Forrest family own Harvey Beef.

    True, but they don't own Goodyear or Santos (unless there's news I've not heard!)

    unfortunately, part of the value of having jersey sponsors, is that punters walk around in public with them on!

    Santos also sponsored Reds and Tahs.

    Saw some Force gear at Rebel Sport today.

    The Jerseys had no Harvey Beef sponsor yet had the rest of them printed. The hoodie was the same design as the training shirts. Hoodie and training shorts felt cheap.

    Whoever signed off on the club gear this year should give themselves an uppercut, especially after last years great kit designs from Paladin.

    Was O'Neills as kit supplier a condition in Rob Kearney's contract?

    O'Neils is also supplying Tahs and Brumbies.

    Perhaps this is the beginning of the centralised RugbyAU Merchandise plan??
