The Sharks have opted for evolution rather than revolution for 2018′s Super Rugby jerseys, today revealing a very refined and frankly AWESOME set of designs.

Try this site for online betting NZ.

The home jersey is black and the away jersey white – uncontroversial choices – with a slightly more toned-down version of the “super hero” third jersey featuring a similar style to the home kit, albeit with red detailing highlighting abdominal muscles and other key features. Last year’s surfboard and Zulu art motifs are this year replaced by a subtle but nonetheless striking depiction of Durban City Hall – together with palm trees, once again cementing the link between the team and the city.

The Zulu links are still there, with the traditional shield and crossed assegais proudly emblazoned on the chest.

You can watch the launch teaser here:

Well done Sharks – this looks very good.

  • Like the design of the jerseys just not a huge fan of the top “stripey” part of the home jersey. Will for sure be sending a quick letter to father Christmas for a 2018 Away jersey.

  • Like the look of these jerseys but what happened to the sharks keeping their jersey for a 2 year rotation? Did that go out the window with BLK?

  • @Hulk (Comment 9) : Money. I read somewhere that the clothing sponsor pays up to R20m for the license and obviously they have to make their money back and a profit

  • @Baylion (Comment 11) : @Hulk (Comment 9) : for sure it’s all about the money! If the jersey did not change I would not have had to buy 8 different jerseys just because they’re so pretty! :roll:

  • @JD (Comment 7) : I’m kind of digging that. Home jersey is my favourite although the away jersey is not bad either.

  • @Baylion (Comment 11) : Stormers havent secured a jersey sponsor so I presume that they have 20m less in their kitty and they have to pay for their jerseys as well (which Im sure the named sponsor would have done)

    WPRU have found a way to put a posiive spin on this loss of Addidas as a sponsor by saying they are being innovative and are now making the jerseys locally, and are thus supporting, the local clothing industry. Heres the rub though, the Adidas sponsored jersey was also made locally by the exact same manufacturers. :oops:

  • The mind boggles that a union like WPRU can get into such financial problems with so few consequences.

  • @JD (Comment 23) : This struggle we have with our wife’s…its real…how difficult is it to understand we need the new jersey every year and if there is 3 released, we NEED all 3 of them? Its a never ending battle…good luck my bro!
