Where was the away kit?

Post by slinky73 » Wed Sep 10, 2008 9:43 am

Sorry for what could be a stupid question but where was the away kit on Sunday?
I just presumed that if we played away we would have the away kit on.

I maybe wrong (I normally am) but isn't only if there is a colour clash? :smt017

i also believe the rule is if there is a clash of colours.
if you had to playin your away kit for away matches, imagine the havoc sale away at wasps would cause.
Wasps home -> all black
Sale away -> all very dark (almost back) blue

imagine trying to watch that match from the stands (although why would you want to! :smt023 )

I think you're right Chobbsy (!). For example, Tigers will be playing London Irish this Saturday, and there is a quite a similarity in colours, so expect Irish to use their "away" strip. Against Glaws last Sunday it was really easy to differentiate the two strips so Tigers wore their "home" kit.

Another example of football ideas taking over-I seem to remember(back in the amateur days of course) it was the home team that changed strip in case of a clash of colours, an example of rugby's "respect to guest" ethic. It was one of the first things to go-never quite worked out why.
Just thought I'd mention it!!!

I also understood that it was the home team that had to change their shirts (as is the case with every other rugby game in the world).

However, I also think that it has more to do with marketing than colour clashes. I suspect you'll see Tigers wear it for some rounds in the EDF Cup.. and maybe the odd game here or there (pre-season for example), but that's about it. Total load of balls if you ask me.

that must mean that Worcesters red away kit is classed as a "light" kit as they wore it against Saints last weekend, but that Gloucester's red kit classed as dark. All very confusing.

Maybe our blue kit just needs marketing as 'change' kit rather than away.

Tigers shirts should all be the same design, with just an interchange of green, red and white sections, so giving a predominantly green shirt for home matches, and a predominently white or red one for away matches where necessary.

I agree Pete 100%

However, the marketing man knows that all those mulberry leisure items and replica shirts sold for the last two years are now redundant and we'll all be flocking to buy sky blue Tigers pyjamas etc. etc.

I supopse it is a business these days. :smt009

premiership has been the oppsite for about 3 years now..

visiting team chnage kit home team can play in home strip..

but only if the kit clash.. and as someone has said not always just colour... they have to have one light strip and one dark strip...

glos's kit is classed as light which is why we could wear our Dark kit... glos's away kit is mainly dark blue http://gloucester.officialshop.net/home.php?cat=1
