The new Sharks jersey is finally here!

The Sharks have decided to go against the trend of innovative, creative and outrageous ideas for their rugby jersey and stick with a simple and more traditional black and white design for their home and away jersey.

I am personally a little underwhelmed, although I am on board with a more basic design. I don’t particularly like the grey shade of the home jersey and therefore prefer the away jersey and I also don’t like the diagonal lines. I don’t mind the “pinstripes”, but I think I would have liked it more if they made the stripes vertical, but that’s just my opinion.

It’s a fresh new start for the Sharks with a fresh new jersey, no frills, no fuss. Maybe that’s exactly what we need to finally get our hands on that trophy.

  • So I’m one of the 2500 people who get one of these just because I renewed my season ticket!

    I think I got used to the bit of red we had in our jersey, you know, with our sponsors having been red for so long, but I’m already liking this more.

  • I like it…as I said in another conversation, rather plain, than plain stupid (like the Camo).

  • I said that I don’t like the grey, but we did some of our best work in a grey jersey.

  • @West Indies Cricket Board (Comment 5) : Me2. I’d like to see it up close though, a picture doesn’t always do it justice and in the video on the BLK website the jerseys actually look much cooler!?

  • Its simple, no frills, no fuss just professional which shows what this union is becoming about. Its about professional rugby not looking like a fashion model. Lets hope the performances can back up the look.

  • Shouldn’t a website called Sharksworld have a slightly more positive spin on the teams jersey launch?

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 20) : I don’t like them, find the design almost “childish” everyone, even non Stormers supporters enjoyed the move towards the traditional “WP Hoops”.

    It looks a bit like a preseason kit.

  • Maria, I love it!!! and especially the diagonal stripes! As any designer or Fashionista like my sister ;) will tell you diagonal stripes are slimming, and since I have picked up a huge doze of the Kgs, I am thrilled! I am definitely making a plan to get both jerseys!

  • @Clayton(PJLD) (Comment 22) : I agree I am a WP basher by trade, but have to say, they should never have moved away from the hoops, they actually are an attractive jersey, pity about the team though ;)

  • I like it, hover I want to see the Sharks back in the black and white strip.

    Rather similar to the Kings jersey though…

  • I cannot tell you how nice it is to see the away kit with white shorts. I’ve been waiting for that for a while! It looks SO much better. Overall, great jersey, great team, great coach, all we need now is people in the stadium!

  • I like the jersey what I don’t like is that I still have to wait until Feb to collect my free one for early season ticket renewals. What’s that all about? Rewarding someone for early commitment and then making them wait forever for the reward. I mean Feb is like next year its so far away. I am going to Gauteng for Christmas and was going to wear it the whole time whilst there. Can you imagine the orders flooding in!!!

  • I think the Home jersey looked darker in the teaser trailer – the close up of the weave looked positively black, which I thought was awesome – but they’re still both nice jerseys. Excited for the season.

  • What I am glad about is that underneath the Sharks emblem stands “THE SHARKS” RATHER THAN “CELL C SHARKS” THE SHARKS -don’t belong to anyone but themselves! – and their fans!Not some sponsor that wants to advertise. So all in all the writing on the jersey is tastefully placed – I just wish they were more black!

  • Love it! Minimalistic and subtle. Anyone notice the two dark lines running from collar to shoulder look a lot like a Shark’s two pectoral fins (in a head on view)? Wonder if that’s intentional?

  • @robdylan (Comment 33) : Good question if it is brown then the Bulls are in purple and the Stomers in Turquoise. Get your eyes tested just now you will be driving through a red light thinking its green. I would accept black or grey but brown? Hell!! Oh by the way the sponsors name has always been quite large on th front maybe it stands out more on the “brown” shirt.

  • Unlike most of you, I think the all black and the all white looks more modern.

    My only real criticism is that the pink on the lady’s white jersey looks like a stain.
