Not the worst but not brilliant either imo.

As with the last few versions - soooo dull and boring it is beyond belief :smt015
Certainly will not be buying one and will stick to my warm and comfy Cotton Traders shirt. No revenue from this is coming Tigers way from our household. Very disappointing indeed :smt022
The people at Canterbury seem to have zero imagination or maybe this design was a competition entry by a 6 yr old. Either way, it's a poor effort :smt010

Looks like a training shirt.

Better than last season but still, as many of us keep saying
" Tigers have stripes "

Now, I know they are called hoops horizontally but you know what I mean.
If the red/white were more prominent ( wider/more of them ) it would have been so much better.

Does anyone listen ?
I may be an old fart, but if sales are all that matters, I am unlikely to buy it or any other shirt without hoops ( stripes ).

And there was the best shirt design of all in the shop - the Euro Black - which could've modified nicely into classic colours.

Not sure how I feel about the new strip yet. It's ok. Can't say any more than that at the moment.

From the 'Open Day' thread -
Nice to see preseason training includes colouring in, sitting in the JTC. Scottie, Salvi, Briggs,AA plus others, all diligently colouring in, with no kids around :smt005 :smt005 :smt005
Anyone see Cockers?
Those deep red bands around the sleeve at bicep level are going to lead to trouble for Salvi and Matera! Far too visible!!

At first glance, I thought that it was not too bad, but those red armbands put me off completely. So, for the third year, that will still leave me with no shirt produced by Canterbury - they certainly seem to know what I don't like.

Ah well. I've probably got too many Tigers shirts in my wardrobe (10-15) anyway and with Mrs Cagey sadly passing away earlier this year, I have inherited a number of "unisex" shirts from her as she was roughly the same size as me.

I noticed at the Open Day that the "shop" in the Final Whistle still had quite a few Tiger stripes shirts (home and away). They have got to try I suppose :smt002 :smt003

The more I see it the more it grows on me.

Slightly thicker bands would be more traditional but they can't keep throwing out the same traditional shirt every year. The red on the sleeves aren't great, the pin stripes are an attempt to modernise but keep the tradionalists on side. I'm interested to see what the away offering will be.

It works for me. Looks pretty good on the players. An upgrade on the last 2 home shirts.

Oh dear. Completely underwhelming.

Wider bands please. Does anyone at the Club have any imput or do Canterbury tell us what to wear?

If there is input from someone here I'd suggest they might canvass opinion from the people who'll be buying them.

Agree that the hoops should be thicker but not too bad compared to some Tigers have had in recent years.

It did occur to me that if this shirt was white with the same hoops pattern it would make a good away shirt.

As I'd feared last season, we had more injuries, in my opinion as kit made our players look smaller and therefore less intimidating for tacklers. At least this season the red sleeves make us look a little broader. Agree totally with those who are underwhelmed and asking why were consumers not consulted more. My main question is: why all the green, at the expense of the white n red? Do Canterbury do any club research? Or did they need to get rid of a job lot of green dye??

Can you JUST get back to a colour scheme I recognise as being my team? Red, white and LIGHT green hoops? How <expletive deleted> difficult is it? FCOL

Just once, once, I ask you stop urinating about and give us a PROPER shirt design.
