    The Brumbies have announced a new jersey design for the 2018 Super Rugby season, harking back to the side’s older, classic kits.

    The home jersey will be predominantly white with blue and yellow stripes across the chest, while the away jersey to be worn by the Canberra-based club will be a reverse of those colours and look virtually the same.

    CEO Michael Thompson said the colour scheme takes the club back to its roots.

    “When looking at the design of the new jersey for the 2018 Super Rugby season we were conscious of including the original orange that appeared on our classic kits of the mid-nineties,” Thomson said.

    “The colours that are on the new home and away jerseys closely match that of those seen on our kits of the past and we are delighted with the new design and believe they will prove to be very popular amongst our fanbase.”

    The Brumbies struggled, as all of the Australian Super Rugby clubs did, in 2017. They were the best of the lot though, topping the Australian conference and making the finals before being knocked over at home during the first week in convincing fashion by the Hurricanes.

    They will be aiming to improve on that effort in 2018 with the Super Rugby competition being revamped to 15 teams, down from 18 last season.

    The cut saw the Western Force – along with South African clubs the Cheetahs and Kings – removed from the competition.

      just like the SA Teams….does new jersey’s equate to improved playing and winning??

      I do like seeing clubs (in any sport) make an effort to return to a classic, less cluttered, unfussy design, but that change strip serves no purpose whatsoever.
      What are the odds that a third strip will make an appearance before the Brumbies match in Melbourne? Neither of these kits are suitable for playing against the Rebels.

      I absolutely despise this corporatisation of sport, including the requirement (for money making purposes) of merchandisers to produce a new variation EVERY BLOODY YEAR!

      I wish these people who dare to trash our traditions for money, would just disappear.

      But of course, while there’s enough stupid people to buy every new version that comes out annually, they’ll continue to exist.

      I’ve still got my original ACT Brumbies shirt from the late ’90s……looking a bit tatty now though, but its still worn to every game.
