General 2022 Warriors Jersey and Merchandise Thread

I suppose they can't because it wasn't displaying anything offensive but it was annoying. I would say the same if it was an ABs one or any oter sporting organisation. Sport does not associate itself with such

If it was a all blacks one they would’ve used another photo. The media are dogs who have always shown preference to rugby. Why do you think there aren’t many stories about rugby players misbehaving. Everyone knows about what Dan Carter used to get up to. But not one thing was ever said about it.

100% agree. The league gets no favours in NZ. Union can do whatever they like and gets away with it

I only know of the drink driving in Paris.

What else did he "allegedly" (😉) do?

when is puma releasing away and alternative jerseys, seems to be no stock in shops
Knowing puma it would surprise me if we saw them before the start of the season. I know with some of their more famous sports assets they would launch a day or 2 before first use

Is Puma the outfit you go to when nobody else is interested? Just asking like.

I know Puma Oceania has been chasing a lot more local teams to add to their portfolio as Puma isn’t really that great in terms of brand perception in this part of the world.
Football is their main passion so they picked up sydney FC (dropped soon after) and also had Roar on their books(also dropped since).
Being Melbourne based they ‘local market’ is a little tunnel visioned on AFL and they had Richmond and WC eagles on their books(since dropped) and have picked up GWS Giants and Carlton. Heard whispers of them wanting to get into league a few years back and Broncos and Warriors were mentioned back then- since then SOO and Warriors have been picked up.
My dislike of them has been with both mine and acquaintances dealings with them being not too flash, design for pro teams is decent in Europe but minimal in Oceania (by far their smallest market which is heavily propped up by Germany) which is where my view of ‘minimal effort’ comes from as it’s generally cut and paste of existing designs.
Had better experiences with Canterbury with the exception of some struggles around covid times (more understandable).
Although they had a longish run with us early 2000s teams don’t tend to stick with them long term, even their crown jewel of Arsenal didn’t stick around long

My other frustration is we have plenty of financial challenges with covid.
We are one of the bigger merch sellers in the NRL but our range this year has little exposure. Range not out for Xmas, range (not even jerseys) not available in sports stores aside from rebel. Full ranges would be on Canterbury site by now yet Puma have or jersey and nothing else on theirs

If it weren’t for the ‘runaway’ Puma, these would comfortably be our finest ever kit.

The OG colours is a unique and readily indentifiable Warriors combo, the blue and white reversed home and away kits, Green updated Moko with straight tongue, contrasting shorts (home or away) straight chevron and classic Vodafone logos (both old on Away jersey and new on Home) are all combining for the better.

Well done Club/Puma/designer/s- best yet.

(Now fix that Puma FFS!)
