As we wrote last week, the 2016 Sharks Super Rugby jerseys will be officially launched for Joburg fans at the World of Rugby Sharks Festival Day in Randburg on Saturday.

Our friends at WorldOfRugby.com have confirmed that the jerseys will retail for R599.00 and remember that if you mention “Sharksworld” you’ll enjoy an extra 5% discount on your jersey.

Also, we can confirm that Tera Mtembu, Andre Esterhuizen and Paul Jordaan will be present at the event to mingle with fans and sign jerseys. Keep your eyes peeled for a few Sharks legends of the past who might also come along to the event.

Here are some pics of the home and alternate away replica jerseys:

  • I must admit, I am a critic with the constant jersey changes, that said, I love this design and do like the red addition. These design are by far the best from a South African perspective, maybe be even close to the best design in the competition.

    The only thing I can criticize is the red jersey with the black shorts, it does not match, white shorts or maybe even red shorts would have been a much better option.

  • @Salmonoid the Subtle (Comment 10) : that is one of the subtle cues that differentiates a genuine player’s matchday jersey from a replica. The Superspot “S” and the special “gripper strips” on the ribs.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 12) : Yes but was that Supersport logo always part of the name, which is Sharks and not The Sharks.
    My turn to nitpick.

  • Kyle Abbott 5/40 in 24.5 overs. Not bad for a replacement. This poor guy offers somuch in all forms of the game but has to be content with being the yo yo man in the team.

  • Just be aware, guys, that the white replica jerseys will only be available next year (not sure why). For now, only black and cherry are available.

  • @Gold_Must_Go (Comment 30) : Seriously bru I thought you were a little more worldly wise than to be suckered into a blatant marketing scam.
    What has red,cherry or any other colour than black and white ever had to do with the Sharks.
    We need two strips a home and away ,one black ,one white.
    The only benefit of a third,fourth,fifth or how many more is a greedy jersey manufacturer and a union that takes its fat cut.
    Total rubbish and any guy wearing the cherry might as well write sucker on his forehead.
    This shit undermines the integrity of the jersey.

  • @The hound (Comment 31) : I’m not 100% certain but I think tournament rules stipulate 3 separate strips are required. I embrace change… maybe why I want to see our plonker of a head coach changed so much hahahaha!

  • @JD (Comment 35) : Off topic. See George Whitehead is back training with the Cheetahs squad. Hanse Graaf also back at the Griffons. The Kings are a total mess, with ultimatums being given to SARU, by the bulk of the players.

  • @JD (Comment 38) : SARU have real problems now. Apparently the 30 players who have signed the petition are the cream of whats left. If they refuse to play it is sevens players and u21 players that are left to play against Super Rugby and test strength teams.

  • Stupid, stupid format to have 6 teams in the first place!

    Super Rugby has got it wrong. The whole point was the best of the best that year, teams earning qualification from their internal leagues to play against and measure themselves against the other form teams in the southern hemisphere. By its very nature participation is not guaranteed but earned, fluid and variable. What we’re stuck with now is routine and boring.

  • And when you read Marinos’ latest comments, it seems further expansion is likely.

    If this is the future then there is no other choice but to scrap the silly conferences and go separate leagues with promo/relegation. This is the only way to incorporate new teams and still maintain that epic “best of the best” theme which initially made Super rugby well, oh so “super”.

  • Must admit im not sure if im the biggest fan of the patterns on the jersey but think it could grow on me. I do like the basic design though, well except the Red one- that just looks like a practice jersey.
