Stade Francais Rugby Jersey


Waffles

Recommended Posts

My 4 year old daughter just walked by as I opened this thread. "That's pretty daddy, I want that. What is it?" "A rugby jersey Anna." "No, Daddy that is for girls"

(She doesn't know that woman can play. She has just saw all the pix of Daddy in his "prime".) However if it was black?

Here is one I just through together. I can see it on a hot blond, but not on a prop.

That brown one is awesome. And don't discount its subtle intimidation factor. Can you imagine what a blow it would be to be beaten by a team dressed in that shirt? It shows a heck of a lot more confidence to take the field in a shirt with pretty flowers on it than with some growling bear or whatever run-of-the-mill "intimidating" logo.

Yet more proof that some baseball team somewhere (this means you, Marlins or Rays) needs to adopt a floral-print alt jersey.

I think that side also has a solid pink top with blue numbers on it, if I'm not mistaken.

like this?

Didn't some English team do this already? I remember seeing a team with brown and pink before, I can't remember where I saw it though.

Personally, get rid of the flowers and pink and I would like it.

Corinthian-Casuals (an all-amateur club in existence [Corinthians] since the 1870s) also have brown/pink as their club colours.

IIRC, Stade Français's president, who is basically the reason behind their dominance since taking over the club back in 1992, has gone with pink for their clash kit since 2005 in order for the club to "shock" the opposition with such a colour which stereotypically does not match with the macho world of rugby. The lilies were added last season for the same reason.

And for the record, State's clash kit is the Top 14's best-selling shirt.

See if you're going to go nuts, you gotta go PROPERLY nuts. This club is inspirational.

Absolutely. But personally, I find the floral thing much stronger than the lighting-bolt theme. So I'm really not a fan of the home or third, whereas that pink away is awesome. I'd much rather seen the flowers carried through to the home as well and save the lightning bolts for the third.

I'll give them some points for creativity. It might even be crazy enough to work.

Back when I was playing rugby there was a ref in our league who wore this shirt for every match he was a part of. It definitely made him stand out.

Don't forget there's some historical backgrounds in those jerseys. Stade Français is Paris's team, the Capital. The lillies are the french royal flower that you find on the old French Royal Coat of Arms.

The same for the "Blanche de Castille" jerseys they wore this year. One of the greatest Queen in the history of the country, amond the things she did was the end of the conquest of the Comté de Toulouse by the French (parisian) Kingdom. Toulouse being the biggest rival of the Stade Français, it was more or less a way to tell their big rivals "we own you"!
