Love this range of kit. Price is always emotive, I am of an age that £10 still feels like a lot of money and then i realise what tat actually gets me these days ...
I’ll be purchasing, without resentment, and on a limited income - each to their own.

I have to say, after years of not being able to a classic shirt for what I like to kid myself is a prop's frame, the 2020 is likely to be nabbed. Encourage the behaviour you want to see and all that...
No, not that one!

Remember, whatever you do to the smallest of the backs you do to his prop, and you can't avoid the rucks and mauls forever...

Most clubs classics version of their modern shirts seem to be £60 ish.
So £70 is not really too far off the heritage stuff.

Will "cop" depending on the quality.

Picked up the grey and claret shirt, got to say well worth £70. Really good quality and fit and actually feels like a traditional shirt rather than the poly :censored: people are trying to push for £100+ now.

Well worth the investment if you are only looking to make one purchase this season. Plus remember the. Money is now going direct into the club which will allow them to grown their lines.

Going back for the black one before Xmas 😉

I really like the designs (a short sleeve version would be a definite sale or two for me). Some have said that the quality is really good, if that’s the case then I may stump up the £70 as it’s a one off.

I really don’t like long sleeves though and the polo shirt is a bit much at £55. I really do hope they sell well though and expand the range.

The club shop may start off slowly but I can see a really bright future if they keep up lines like this.

OK, so no Black but waaaaaay to close to Bath Rugby colours for this Tiger's liking.

I'm still wearing my original "Next" one, so that's saved a few quid and I'm back in fashion again lol.

If you are nimble with the thimble you could cut the sleeves off and turn them into face coverings, fingerless mittens or dare I say it a sock to keep the Remy bottle warm. :smt002
