    Akuma_81 1st Grade Fringe

    I've just had a sneak preview of the entire 2018 range, excluding the Heritage and any other one-off Jerseys.

    I wasn't allowed to take photos so I'll do my best to describe:

    Home and Away - Almost exactly the same as 2017, the only change is the CCC logo has now moved to each shoulder. This probably means that we'll be getting a collar sponsor. The collar is the same as 2017, despite CCC releasing a new template (see the Australia World Cup jersey).

    Nines - Obviously the Nines are not going ahead, but they said they will still likely sell the jersey. The jersey is predominantly grey, and has the new CCC collar. There is a drawing of a Maori Warrior on the abdomen (much like the one on the 2016 Nines jersey, except full colour) with a sweeping NZ style background with ferns, mountains, and coast line. There is another similar image on the back too. Will be interesting to see if they re-brand this as another training, or possibly another one-off jersey.

    Training jersey/training range - As per previous seasons the entire training range and training jersey has the same theme. This time the main colour is a grey/blue colour with a type of circuit/robotic/mechanical design all over it. To be honest I wasn't a big fan and the simplicity of the 2017 range was much better in my opinion.

    Other than that there just seemed to be the usual supporter range, which seemed to have a predominantly grey theme. There were many other items with TBC in the catalogue, so possibly a few other special Jerseys (WiL, ANZAC...etc) to be released along with the heritage? There were no pictures of the heritage, although I have been told that it is again in the original colours.

    Yea, I wasnt much of a fan of this years kit, so for me personally, next years kits not sounding too much better. The 2015/2016 kits were my pick of the recent designs, mind you all the nines Jerseys have always been pretty rad.

    I didn't like the jersey or the kuru designs on the side. Moving CCC to the shoulders for another sponsor... it's a pass for me

    Was there a blank box where the sponsor should be? Usually what they do if there is one TBC.

    Was the circuit board design on the training Jerseys? Colours? Did it look like the U20s training jersey or the background the Warriors have been using all year that looks more like a street map???

    There actually wasn't a TBC box under the collar so maybe it will just remain blank. However the sleeve and lower back sponsors were TBC, so maybe new sponsors there?

    The circuit/mechanical design was kind of like that, although it wasn't all over the jersey and had red dots and numbers incorporated in the pattern from memory. The main colour was grey (much like the 2011 training jersey) and the design was kind of diagonally on the lower abdomen area and then across the top and on the sleeves. Having said that, when you guys see a picture of it you'll probably say "what was that bloke on with his descriptions!" lol. The same theme is throughout pretty much the whole training range, so if you don't like the design then you're going to have a cheap year!

    With the home and away Jerseys largely being the same it's hard to see them selling well, unless we kill it next season!

    The Nines jersey was actually quite cartoon/manga like and I can see it being popular so I wouldn't be surprised to still see it released in some form.

    From what I've been told the majority of the new season gear will be available early November.
