  • Not impressed with the Lions jersey.

    They re trying to breed a Win Culture by using our colours?

    I foresee court cases …

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 11) : sorry not watching the game. What colours are they using if not the traditional white with a red stripe?

  • Looks like a Sharks strip. Black or possibly dark blue with white stripe …

  • @JD (Comment 12) : Dark blue with one white loop. Good looking jersey.

    The image of Whiteley wearing it is way overexposed. It’s far closer to the colour in the graphic representation.

  • @Mutley (Comment 21) : sound a lot like a copy of the Sharks but if it’s their original colours then it sounds ok.
