World of Rugby in Johannesburg is hosting a special event for Sharks fans, to celebrate the launch of the new 2016 Sharks Super Rugby jersey.

The Sharks will unveil the hot new BLK-manufactured shirt at a special event in Durban on 3rd December and Johannesburg-based fans can get theirs at World of Rugby on Saturday at a never-to-be-repeated introductory price. What’s more, World of Rugby (together with BLK) have managed to secure three high powered Sharks players to host a signing session at their retail outlet in Randburg on the day. This will be happening on Saturday 5 December from 10:00 to 14:00.

On the day they will have a beer tent, music, a jumping castle and free boerewors rolls to every Shark supporter who purchases the new 2016 Super Rugby Replica Shirt.

See the below flyer for more details and be sure to get out there. We’ll announce an exciting competition together with World of Rugby in the near future too.

BE SURE TO MENTION SHARKSWORLD WHEN PAYING FOR YOUR JERSEY ON THE DAY – YOU’LL ENJOY AN EXTRA 5% DISCOUNT

World of Rugby, the largest dedicated rugby shop in Africa, is located at 83 Bram Fischer Road, Randburg, or on-line at WorldOfRugby.com.

  • @vanmartin (Comment 5) : that bar is very low.

    @vanmartin (Comment 2) : I don’t know the price, but since “regular” pricing for these jerseys tends to be around R600, I’d hope it would be lower than that.

  • @Die Kriek (Comment 7) : The pink is at least for cancer awareness this time and not just for the fun of it.

    I liked the zigzag blue kit. That’s been their best effort of the last few years.

    The black and red one has a nice colour scheme but the bull face is as @KingRiaan (Comment 4) : King Riaan said, very Chicagoish!

    @Dragnipur (Comment 21) : Well to think about it, why has the Sharks never changed their colors to maybe blue or red? Why have they been in black and white for over 100 years? Was stupid of me to say that yes.

    @robdylan (Comment 22) : oh c’mon you naughty, rise to the occasion.

  • @Uli Boelie (Comment 24) : sponsors give money because they want exposure. That’s the only reason for doing it. It’s a necessary evil of the modern game. Not going to be contracting too many Ruan Botha’s or Willie le Roux’s without revenue from sponsors.

    So do I “like” all the logos on the jersey? Not hugely. Do I respect the value those sponsors bring? Hell yes!

  • I remember at the beginning of the 2007 season thinking how I didn’t like the mostly grey jersey with black sleeves but by the end of the season I loved it. Why, because that was the year we topped the log, JP was top try scorer we played the Final at Kings Park and we were so painfully close to taking our maiden title. So at the end of the day I like a jersey the team wins in.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 27) : Lol I wouldn’t go that far but more sponsors on the kit isnt a bad thing if done tastefully

    in today age you gotta have a good revenue stream and with the global economy you gotta also be smart about it

    no longer can you hope for just 3/4 big money sponsors

    you gotta be inventive with smaller companies also. WP have tons of supporter all over western cape/sa at large and even overseas. Companies line up around the block to be associated with them

    look at what french football and now rugby teams do, they are aware that most companies want exposure but dont have the money to be the only logo on the shirt so the buy real astate on the kit

    the worst for me is when teams cant get sponsors and the kit looks empty, it seems strange like somethings missing. Look at the kings kit at the start of 2013 super rugby, it was like a sign that this team doesnt belong here (which the proved wrong)

    That having been said, your SR kits never looked as cool as our CC kits design wise (forget about sponsors logo)
