I am disgusted that the players will be wearing a new top for the final.
I feel this is a massive let down to the thousands who have bought home and away tops this season.
Have the club thought about us fans ????

Widnes fans will be wearing the same tops as their team, we on the other hand will look abit silly all wearing our replica jerseys that will be totally different from the players.

Wrong move and a big let down for the fans i think.

we also wore a new top in the 2005 GF, which was to become our home kit for last season

i thought then and i think now, it is a daft idea as the team are used to wearing a particular shirt and a new one doesnt always feel right the first time its worn!!

Just cause you don't understand what's going on don't mean it don't make no sense
And just cause you don't like it, don't mean it ain't no good

Surely playing in a shirt that the Fans cant wear or purchase is a way of alienating fans.

I've been told the shirt is in the mold of Bradford's home strip apart from it has the chocolate, blue and gold on it.

the kit for the final is the same as the bradford home shirt except the hoops on it are choc blue and gold, the designs for next seasons kits are completley different from the one being used for the nrc final.

I think that it's really stupid changing the shirt, no thought at all for the fans just another chance to make some money. Our fans will all be in different tops, where as the Widnes fans will be in the same top as their players. :o :o

There is no money to be made out of the shirt that is being worn for the final as it is not on sale to the general public!!!!

True

But what about the fans who have paid alot of money to wear their teams colours ???

How about next year we dont bother buying one.

I have bought a home and away top for the last 5 year and a home top for the last 15, i wont be bothering anymore like alot of people i have spoke to.
