  1. So looking at the Macron shop, they also supply Portugual: Germany: (and probably one of the nicest kits out there)
  2. Watched the pathetic attempt by Canada against Wales. The Canadians were in all black and it looked not too bad. In about 15 minutes, Canada is set to play England at Twickingham and the Canadians are going to be in all red. For their black kit, I don't mind the all black set but I must say that I really don't like Canada in an all red it. I would have prefered white shorts for the Canadians. I know there would be too much similarities with looking like Wales but this one colour set just doesn't look good. On a side note, looks like Macron will be adding yet another country to their list. Georgia is set to sign on with Macron at the end of the year after spending the past few years being supplied by Canterbury. Macron now supplies Wales, Scotland, Romania, Canada and now Georgia.
  3. Fiji have dropped their new Nike kits that will debut this weekend against the All Blacks. The front sponsor is usually Air Fiji and will return after this game from what I understand.
  4. Australia had a vote with their players and fans about their new colour and they voted to go back to their original gold colour. They are also using Cadbury as their new shirt sponser:
  5. The Toronto WolfPack have announced a new kit supplier when they start up in the North American Rugby League. They have previously been supplied by Kappa, ISC and BLK before the pandemic hit. On a side note, after looking at the NARL store, it seems all of their gear is being supplied y Macron. Perhaps they have a deal with them to supply all of the teams for their first season in 2022. https://macronstorect.tuosystems.com/stores/narlleague
  6. Wexham AFC released their new kits by Macron and new shirt sponser TikTok They are owned by Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. Reynold had funny video about guessing who the new sponsor would be and included companies like PanAm Airlines, Delorian Motor Company and Enron.
  7. I was just going to post this... Not too bad and will set them apart from the other red and white team which is nice. I just hope the replica shirts are nicer than the Canterbury ones. I got the black World Cup one and was REALLY disapointed with it. It didn't have the rubbery sticky stuff on it like the Under Armour one.
  8. I'm still waiting for Rugby Canada and Macron to unviel their Olympic, 7's and 15's kits. With all of the switching Canada has done over the last 10 years (Under Armour, Canterbury and now Macron) all off them have been really late in showing off the new kit. Canada's mens XV are set to play Wales on Saturday and there hasnt been any kit reveal at all. This is one of the MANY issues I have with Rugby Canada... the others include the money that's paid to them on their on field performance over the last decade.
  9. So why are these guys allowed to use the "Mounties" name and likeness on a logo but when Vancouver got the NBA and wanted to use the name, they were told no? I know the logo was terrible and the on court performance was dreadful but that aside, why is this ok and the NBA was not? For the record, I much prefer the Grizzlies name over "Mounties".
  10. As mentioned before, Fiji has signed on with Nike to provide their kit for 3 years I think. Anyways, they have just revealed their 7's kit that will be used in the Oceania 7's tournament:
  11. Not sure if Steve Nash played lacrosse in Victoria as a youth but Gretzky sure did and was pretty good at it as well from what I understand. I'm pretty sure Gretzky was also part owner of the Arizona Sting while he was owner of the Coyotes. I also think Gretzky's son-in-law is also part owner as well.
  12. No so much a club but a competition change. The Pro14 circuit is rebranding after allowing the 4 former South African Super Rugby franchises to join their competition. Recently they completed the Pro14 Rainbow Cup with the Couth African clubs playing in their own pool and the remaining 12 clubs playing in Europe. (final is this weekend with Italy's Benetton vs. the Vodacom Bulls from South Africa) Anyways, starting next year they will be known as the United Rugby Championship. Here is the logo: The teams in the competition are Edinburgh and Glasgow Warriors from Scotland, Scarlets, Ospreys, Cardiff Blues and Dragons from Wales, Munster, Connacht, Leinster and Ulster from Ireland, Zebre and Benetton from Italy and the Sharks, Stormers, Bulls and Lions from South Africa. I think the main reason for South Africa joining this compatition was because of travel to Australia and New Zealand and the TV times in South Africa are in line with Europe. Here's the old logo for reference:
  13. A lot of people thought that Nike was leaving rugby with Argentine being the last national team they provided kit for as well as Toulouse but yesterday the Fiji Rugby Union signed a 3 year deal with Nike to provide their kit and training gear. Nike has had some fantastic looking kits with Argentine so lets hope they can duplicate that success with Fiji... who, by the way, are the reigning Olympic rugby 7's champions. Fiji Rugby Union announce multi-year deal with sportswear giants Nike
  14. Manu Samoa has released a new logo as well as kit: Logo: Primary: Secondary: Old kit for reference: Fun fact, my coach here in Edmonton a couple of years ago was a legendary tackler who played for Manu Samoa as well as the Wasps club in London... a guy by the name of Trevor Leota.
