If I was going to buy it I'd wait until April when they start flogging them for pocket money.

The t-shirts nice, not sure in the long white sleeves it's a bit bland.
On the whole I think I will waistband see 'in the flesh' before deciding to part with my cash
Waistband see?

I was so excited at buying this shirt now unless the away one by some miracle isn't disgusting will be another year I don't buy one due to design..

It was put perfectly on the Facebook group with: Why can't the Tigers leave well enough alone? Seems like the club has spent the last 10 years actively trying to avoid wearing one of the most famous club kits in rugby

I :smt017 :smt011 :smt012
Surley you mean the last 5 years?

The 09/10 and 10/11 was a thing of beauty IMO.
Funnily enough RB this is the only kit I wear I just couldn't be bothered editing his post from my iPhone..I wear it even though it has Waldrom 8 on the back

I am holding out hope for the away kit (silly I know) all I want is a decent kit I can wear it is ridiculous that they keep making such awful kits the new classic version with the white sleeves is just a Joke!!!

At least it has hoops! It does kind of look like it was a half decent design to begin with but was then given a once-over by a rugby league kit designer...

Surely the aim a of a kit is to convey the identity of a club and be appealing to its fans, so they'll buy it and generate money for the club?!

I am a little surprised by a couple of people saying that they'd only buy the shirt if we'd won silverware - how fickle can you be!!

I think it is better than last year and a lot more traditional. I think part of the problem is the white arms/shoulders against a white background gives them an odd shape. It will probably look a lot better in the flesh..

the ones worn by the players in the video of the photo shoot have a mostly green back with only 1 band at the bottom i presume to show the printing in a clearer light. as someone who likes abit of replica-ness i wish the ones we are able to buy also had the green back as white printing on the hooped design will look rather muddled!

but on the whole i like it better than last years

It is crazy that they obviously don't want to make money from it..I think it looks like a crappy league shirt and unless the Away one springs some kind of miracle I will be spending the money I wanted to buy this with on an England one...

Well done Tigers great job :smt038 :smt012

That's the one shirt I would buy, alongside the old black euro shirt. I have 3, and the last one - last season's - is a piece of caci, as the Welsh say. I won't be buying this one, although it isn't that bad...think 'bib' for truly awful.

I know that Bill can speak for himself but, I would imagine that when you have supported Tigers as long as he has, buying a new shirt every season would require huge amounts of wardrobe space. Buying one when we have won silverware is a form of memento of the success.

To put it simply, I don't like it.

Has anyone contacted the relevant department to ask why the players shirts have an all green back but the "replica" shirts do not? How can they be a replica? :smt017

It's for the numbers it is why some replicas didn't have a white square on the back unlike the players version.

Usually test shirts will have them if released.

I can't wait to see how few people buy them bet it will be astonishing...

Whoever is ultimately responsible should feel very embarrassed!!!

I know the reason why is for the numbers but a replica shirt should be exactly the same as the players shirts. What if a fan purchases a shirt and wants a name and number on the back?!
