A Puma and a Bull walk into a bar

You’d have thought at least one of them would have seen it. Maybe both of them were so busy looking at the bottom line that they forgot to look ahead. That can be the only reason why neither of them would recognise that the new Bulls jersey is an eyesore.

Puma and the Blue Bulls company joined forces in June of this year with Puma supplying full technical kit to the Blue Bulls Company. The initial announcement in June only mentioned the Vodacom Blue Bulls and Vodacom Bulls teams, now a five year deal has been signed with Puma to supply the technical kit for all the teams under the Blue Bulls Company auspices.

The Vodacom Blue Bulls jersey was received with some reservation back in June and the new SuperRugby jersey for 2012 will probably go down like a lead baloon if comments on the Bulls’ official website and social networking sites are anything to go by.

It is not entirely clear if the Bulls’ Jersey has been inspired by Stade Francais who have over the years come up with some exceptional designs. It is however abundantly clear that Paris and Pretoria are more than just a couple thousand miles apart in both geographic location and fasion design ability.

I have been told that goal keepers such as Bruce Grobelaar used to design some outlandish outfits in an attempt to distract any players taking shots at goal. Are the bulls planning on spending a lot of time under the goalposts distracting players taking shots at goal?

  • @Muzi (Comment 6) : Personally I don’t think the jersey is too bad. Looks like lightning bolts on them. I’m just a bit disappointed by the Puma logo, it’s not very visible. I thought they could have placed the dark blue bolts better to make the white Puma logo stand out more.

    Still, the Highlanders and Aussie Sevens teams’ jerseys are worse.

    I can’t imagine those with a khaki fetish wanting to wear this

  • @Ben (Comment 18) : Probably something new but you can bank on them having a boring white away strip again.

    Would be nice if we could have a more daring away jersey.

    Plus I don’t like the tight jerseys at all. Makes them look like they should be playing rugby league.

  • I dont think the jersey is that bad to be honest. But my preferance would be for the teams to play in the kit that they play CC in. I know the teams are Super Rugby franchises but still. I want to see the Bulls in light blue, Sharks in black/white, Lions in red/white, Cheetahs in orange and Stormers in blue/white. Im sure some of the older fans would prefer that!

  • Oh my, the rugby Fashion Police are out in force today. Perhaps I’ve touched a nerve ….? Betcha there will be more Bulls supporters in the stands wearing the new jersey than Sharks supporters in the B & W – it always amazes me how many S supporters rather go to games in yellow, green, pink, purple, any colour in the spectrum, even blue t-shirts, than the official kit. ❓ 😯

    No sexism.

    Guy Rule #1: Defend your point of view to the death, even once you’ve realised you are wrong.

    Girl Rule #1: If you are losing the argument, conveniently change the argument to one that you have a better chance of winning.

    Women don’t get hysterical when they argue, they get historical. 🙂 (as in they revert back to an argument that they won in the past)

  • Seriously… “Just no Comment”. Even looking at it from a Design perspective it is flawed… Can anybody really notice the Puma or Bulls logo??? Or is it one of those 3D images u used to get in the “Jou / Huis Genoot” middle page, where u strain your eyes to see the image below??? Here is a hint for the Bulls franchise… “Next time pay someone to design a jersey”.
