All I can say is I'm looking at Nicho in the away jersey right now and it looks great.

I like the away jersey but would have liked to see a new design, that's what an away jersey is for imo.

I realized footy jersey designs almost never change other than the sponsors. One would think new designs would attract more sales.

Is that on purpose? Is there a reason for it (such as being tradition) or is it just being lazy?

From a tradition and brand recognition perspective changes are usually fairly small
Especially as there are so many chances in NRL these days to have special jerseys where you introduce different looks but aren't committed to them.

Would you want a blue jersey with black and white chevrons? Or alternately BWB horizontal stripes? Or blue and white vertical stripes with white trim?
Those aren't our 'look'. Probably be quite a bit of pushback if they were suddenly one of our main jerseys.
But if last years Heritage jersey was popular enough maybe we could see an away jersey more similar to that design and if it stayed popular maybe they'd eventually try a design like that for a home jersey. But for now our home jersey has quite a set and recognisable identity.

Yeah l want the home jersey to stay pretty much the same. Like you said, plenty of opportunity to change the other jerseys we use throughout the year.

I'd love us to stop wearing it for 75% of our away games

I’m happy for sharks to wear home jersey any away games there is no clash
Have a home and an ‘alternate’, not an ‘away’

For one the style home jersey we have been wearing for a bit now is what I think if when I picture the team
For two while it’s probably very small any opportunity for our players to best recognise each other during a game can’t hurt

I just wear my retro 3/4 sleeve one anyway.
And bought the 1967 long sleeve replica a few month ago.
The retros suit adults far better imo
I want my kid to Benjamin Button the retro Jersey.
Rather see him without it on
Yeah, can we not just paint the jersey on players now? It's a natural evolution from the NSW SOO jerseys, and would please a lot of people.

I sound like I'm nit picking but that collar looks cheap. Preferred the 22 collar.

Thanks @bort.
