As we wait patiently for the 2016 Super Rugby season to arrive, we have to find things to keep us entertained (hard when your idea for a good time out is watching 100+ kg men fight over a ball). In an endeavor to add a little fun to your assumedly dull lives I have come up with a poll to vote for the best teams Jersey for the 2016 season.

Please only take the home jersey into account when voting, and try not be to biased.

Missing:
Cheetahs have not scheduled a date for their reveal
Waratahs have scheduled the release for February 2016
Los Jaguares were meant reveal their Jersey on December 16th, but never?

Bulls 2016 Kits

Lions 2016 Kits

Sharks 2016 Kits

Stormers 2016 Kits

Southern Kings Jersey

Brumbies 2016 Home Jersey:

Rebels 2016 Kits: ( I honestly don’t know which is which)

Reds 2016 Jersey

Western Force 2016 Jersey

Blues 2016 Jersey

Chiefs 2016 Jersey

Crusaders 2016 Jersey

Highlanders 2016 Jersey

Hurricanes 2016 Jersey

Sunwolves 2016 Jersey

  • I’m going with the Crusaders… Can we vote for worst jersey too? If so, my vote goes to the Kings

  • On the SA side I think ours is the best, might be as its my team, but I really think the NZ sides kits are awesome for next year something totally unexpected from them, especially the crusaders and the hurricanes, but then so our ours, I like the fact that the color is almost in comparison with our Currie cup kit, but with some spice added for a lekker flavor

  • That DHL logo has spoiled the Stormers jerseys for a number of years now. They might as well go all yellow and red.

  • Lions one is very original…
    Stormers and Sharks away jerseys actually look better than their home jersey…I just don’t like the creche drawings on the Sharks jersey…Kings jersey is ugliest and 2nd ugliest Bulls…

  • I see all the SA teams went red for their away jerseys…is it out of respect for the Currie cup champs?

  • The red and blue has been over done. I was hoping some of the new teams would adopt something a little different. I fear the Jaguars (I’m sticking with their English name) are going to go with boring blue too.

  • What really is rather humiliating for South Africa is that bookies Sportingbet have Jaguars of Argentina more likely to win Super 18 over ANY South African team.

    in fact 7 teams are placed with shorter odds before the first SA team, the Stormers (quite bizarrely).

  • I must say, I do foresee another dire year of Super Rugby for SA teams, well the consistent trend really other than a tiny spell of Super 14 when the Bulls won it 3 times.

  • @Gold_Must_Fall (Comment 16) : Thats hardly surprising seeing as though the Jaguars is pretty much the Argie National side so of course they are favourably backed. Majority of SA sides are fairly young and untested hence not much backing.

  • Really dont have an outstanding favourite in terms of the jerseys. Think the sponsors logos ruin a few good ones, like the Blues jersey. Im still not a fan of the arb patterns on the Sharks jersey…think i would have preferred without those patterns or if they were integrated better…seems like they were an after thought.

  • For me it’s no contest, I love the art work on the Chiefs jersey, and love how the sponsor blends in perfectly.

    Oh and also no contest for the worst, Kings.

  • @SheldonK (Comment 18) : Mate, I think it speaks volumes about the present state of SA rugby that the Jaguars are said by bookies to have a greater chance at winning the comp than ANY SA team. If it was so obviously the case as you suggest that the Argentinian team is superior to all SA teams, why has an Argentinian team not been included decades ago? I think even just two years ago when White was in charge I’d have backed the Sharks – laden with an All Springbok front row, Alberts, Coetsee, Lambie, Steyn etc – to beat the Argentinian national team home and away…. of course Argentinian rugby has improved in that period… but my concern is that SA rugby has declined to a greater extent. The true test is am I concerned the bulk of the kiwi teams will lose to the Jaguars home and away? Not at all.

  • @Seth101 (Comment 20) : marketing faux pas that Chiefs jersey/sponsor logo. You can’t even distinguish the sponsor from the design! It’s meant to stand out and be noticed… Zero brand awareness there.

  • @Gold_Must_Fall (Comment 21) : Argie rugby is reaping the rewards now as their players have learnt their trade playing in Europe and have now returned to Arg. They have a current group of very good players. NZ sides will def struggle in Arg. I still dont think the Jaguars will be that great away from home but will still be tough to beat. There has been a large exodus of experienced and talented guys from SA, there are new coaches at the helm. The guys we have coming through now are largely untested…would be a very brave book maker to back them over a National side. I know we like to think that any SA side side should beat anyone no matter what but thats very unrealistic. The guys coming through are good…no they wont win every game…but give them a chance to see what they worth. Trust me NZ sides are definitely very beatable

  • @SheldonK (Comment 31) : Yup, I love it but my biggest grip is the side panels.
    I understand the purpose, ‘black and white’ rather than either or, but smaller would have been nicer, and even without them I don’t think they’d go against tradition to much.

    @SheldonK (Comment 34) : I don’t know so much, those a feel are very accurate to the style of Zulu art design:

  • Addidas sure went all out with the NZ teams’ presentations…..contrasted by the Kings (BLK) decidedly amateur “side street ID photo vendor” look and feel.

    I’d have to say:

    Crusaders
    Chiefs
    Hurricanes

    then Sharks (probably my bias, which says a lot for the designs of the teams above the Sharks)

  • Sunwolves looks the coolest.

    Heard a lot of negative stuff about the Kings Kit, once I was it, it doesnt look bad at all, not the best, but a very African pattern similar to what I’ve seen when I toured rural eastern cape

    Im neutral about ours, its OK

    I’d rather but a simple back/white t-shirt with the sharks logo on it

  • So I asked my wife for her opinion on the rugby jerseys: After laughing at the Bulls, rolling her eyes at the Stormers and doing this :shock: at the Kings’ jersey…her conclusion was that she wouldn’t go out of her way to buy any of the jerseys. She thought the Sharks, Reds, Crusaders were ok…and basically she reckons it’s time to go retro!
