Some of those SF kits are out there - which is no bad thing.  But having 17 stone rugby beefcakes trotting out in a floral kit leads me to suspect the designers might actually hate rugby.

Worth remembering that back in 1993, plenty of people hated the green & black kit, yet when Score Draw reproduced them a few years ago, the yoof went mad for them.  No accounting for taste innit?

I doubt they produced that many in fairness

Nah, it was the club owner that started the whole thing and the fans and players loved it so they made it an official change, with the new badge and everything. The point was to have 2 kits that would never clash with anyone else, so blue and pink and pink and white, with Pink being the least used colour in sports kits. Given the clubs reputation as one of the most inclusive and liberal in sport it makes perfect sense for them.

We had a third black / grey kit with claret shorts under Nike, which I dont think we ever wore, maybe this will be the same?

I quite like "different" kits as well.  Just not when they're shit, though.
Me too. This fit is horrible. The kappa print on for the training shirt started to peel after ONE wash. That's a record for crapness

Yes, it's garbage.  My away kit with the dodgy badge, has started to peel after two washes after I've used it twice for 5 aside.

Thank God you didn't use detergent ;)

It’s the fault of the fans who bought the shirts... washing too hot, too cold, too long, too short. Not kappa’s fault... no sir-eee. Now run along and stop complaining.

If I bought that shite I'd be demanding a full refund, both Dean and John have been on camera now with damaged badges.

I saw a young lad yesterday in the official tracksuit with the same issue and all his mates singing "Where's your badge gone" "you've only got half a lion"  felt for him, red as a tomatoe

Popped into the club shop yesterday, the 3rd kit looks quite nice in the flesh so to speak. But out off by both the price and the comments regarding the quality.
I did see that the club shop are selling replicas of the 1990-92 Umbro home kit, can't see it listed anywhere online, lovely bit if 90's  nostalgia.

Was this at the game? Or what you were doing in this scenario -- just hanging around listening to the lads...??  :D

My 7 year old wants a proper shirt. I have no problem with the sponsor - I had no idea what they did so he isn't likely to! But I am trying to work out what to buy. I tend to buy 11-12 for him generally. The mens shirts are too big, are the ladies ones shaped differently or is he going to have to be swamped!

No age 5 kits left apart from with JD Sports. Ordered from them and they sent the away instead. Other than it not being what I ordered, it's shit.
