    Looks really strange. I believe Warriors had moved from DB Bitter to Vodafone as their major sponsor by the time the tongue of the warriors logo was straightened. If real, id guess its around 98/99 seasons. mt.wellingtonmt.wellington will probably know it!

    Really weird one that doesn't seem to fit anywhere
    Nike years 97-99
    NRL badge came in 98
    Vodafone replaced DB Bitter in 99
    Straight tongue logo came in 2000 with first puma jersey

    I think it came from the Wong Jersey Factory based in the Chinese province of Kountifit

    Is it just me, or does the 'DB Bitter" logo look photo shopped?

    Trolled.

    Brilliant breakdown.

    Didn't wanna talk about it as I was trying not to add hype to the auction lol. Lost it anyway once I stopped at $700. Saw a pic of it once the buyer received it and I'm glad I didn't get it. It looks in great condition in the auction pics but its quite worn. Dodged a bullet really but still a nice jersey.

    Straight tongue came out in 1999 but only on the team issue gear which is what this training jersey is. My best guess is it was made in late 1998 preseason before Vodafone was confirmed as the main sponsor in 1999. It could very well be a manufacturers sample.

    To make things even murkier they had a red trim version in 1999 with Vodafone and a curved tongue!?

    The seller has some really strange gear. A lot of them Ive never seen before. I'll be seeing him when I pick up an auction I won. I'm going down to Rotorua to watch the Kiwis U16 play the Maori U17 on Saturday. Hope to have a good chat and see inside the vault! I'll update you's on anything I find out...

    Hahaha. That is some weird shit.
    Sorry you missed out Mt.wellington, but my goodness.... that coin is better in your back pocket.
    The jersey looks homemade.
