Don't you mean Coward Yellow?

Would be good to see a return to the gold of the 80s though. Bring back memories of Poidevin, Ella, Slack, Skylab etc.

The 1991 version was the best. Best pigmentation of gold.

The 1996 version looked orange.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_(color)
Wikipedia say that gold is a colour, or rather color, so it must be true. It does remind me though of those e-tales books of about 20 years ago where it was pointed out that women have a much wider vocabulary to describe subtle variations in colour than men, mainly by using the word for a thing or material instead, which is how ‘stone’ became a colour. Wouldn’t be allowed in these non-binary days, of course. And, to be completely fair, if QI is true, the colour orange is named after the thing, and not the other way round (like canaries and the Canary Islands), and before that orange things were called red. So gold is a colour, but I still think that the jerseys are yellow.

Awesome that the results overwhelmingly favoured the old jerseys.


https://www.smh.com.au/sport/rugby-unio ... 56xj5.html
Rugby Australia chairman Hamish McLennan saying the results will have a “major bearing” on what is selected.

...

It appears the older the better, with the top three – 1991, 1984 and 1999 – recording 77 per cent of total votes.
Awesome!!!

Is this the end to the era of shit canargy yellow Wallaby jerseys!? I would be so happy. The only thing that could make me happier is if they put a proper collar on it.

This would bring the fans back in droves and signal the beginiing of a new dawn of non-shitness for the Wallabies.

@Olo: it's about the colour, not the design. I'm sure that awesome indigenous shirt is not going anywhere. It just won't be canary yellow and fluro green, thankfully.

Top left are orange and bottom are too yellow.

Just in terms of the colour I agree the top right 1999 RWC/Macqueen era shade of gold is probably the best one to land on...

I like the one Punter poster.

I also agree the classic "Wallabies Golden Era" shade is probably the best, but if we're going to f-ck it up, then making it too orange is a billion times better than making it too fluro yellow.

While they're at it I really hope they get rid of all the f-cking stupid excessive design bullshit. All we need is a basic, plain rugby jersey. Maybe a bit of green stripes or something, but that's it, and keyword being "a bit" (unless it's the indigenous jersey in which case, go nuts). And add an old school collar too. Perfection.

Paradoxically if they made a Walalby rugby jersey like that with a collar, etc. it would sell like absolute crazy. Pardoxically because the marketing geniuses that come up with with these ridiculous over-designed fluro space-suite jerseys every year are obviously doing so because they think it will sell but actual rugby fans, for the most part, hate them and just want a classic and recognizeable Wallabies jersey.

Big issue? Why is it an issue? Aren't unions allowed to re engage with fans and ex players?
So you have no problems if they decide on black in a sort of Trump train of thought?

Agreed with posters above, gold for the win ... with green piping.

Eyeore - did they really engage anyone? Herald ran a poll, RA got a bunch of old boys and selected others to a dinner in Sydney and Brisbane. Top level engagement...

Anyway - '91 won.

and in more interesting news apparently the old boys were talking about introducing the 'captains call' / 'review' into Super AU. My view - the game is (i) stop start as it is and (ii) two many infringements occur that could be called, but a missed or not called.

I don't think the game needs more delays, more TMO involvement. The game should be allowed to flow - mistakes will occur, but the overall number is low and i think we just need to live with it.

Yes - but do you remember the speed of TMO decisions in SuperAu? It was rapid. 3x faster than test matches.

The best IMO. Darker shade of green collar & shorts gives it extra aura points.

The green collar needs work, but its miles better than the one on the left.

Agreed it's a huge improvement but the collar is shit. You'd think they'd get the message the the fans like the traditional ones and just go balls to the wall old-school like the scots and saffers have done on occassion in recent years.

It would sell like crazy but it seems these people who are probably getting paid crazy salaries to come up with these designs seemingly have no idea at all. As if it's just the colour.

But still, massive improvement. Can't complain considering what it could have been. :thumbup:

They very well might release a 'fans version' - what is basically an old school cotton version with the updated design. The brumbies have done it recently.

Where a retro version in a one off game versus Tonga or something (like the tahs did a year or so ago). Those jerseys are great to wear sitting around, but I trained in one the other day, and they are absolute dogs to wear for actual rugby once you're used to the light high tech versions.

I played in one for twenty years and didn't notice any difference at all switching to the newer ones.

I don't know about you but I've got other things on my mind in the heat of the moment than a few extra grams of cotton on me.

And even if they think wearing a cyclist jersey will give them a 1% advantage, what does taking the collar off give you? 0.01%?

It was so long ago maybe they were a prick to wear and I just forget. I'm getting old. :(

edit: I played in the forwards since I was 12, so I guess as a back that might be a heavy burden. :lol:

I'll give you that they got heavier in the wet and the mud.

I played in one for about 10 before the switch. Its very noticeable in the pissing rain.

Agreed on the collar though - can't imagine there is any difference.

They very well might release a 'fans version' - what is basically an old school cotton version with the updated design. The brumbies have done it recently.
It doesn't count if the players aren't wearing it on the international stage.
Where a retro version in a one off game versus Tonga or something (like the tahs did a year or so ago). Those jerseys are great to wear sitting around, but I trained in one the other day, and they are absolute dogs to wear for actual rugby once you're used to the light high tech versions.
I played in one for twenty years and didn't notice any difference at all switching to the newer ones.

I don't know about you but I've got other things on my mind in the heat of the moment than a few extra grams of cotton on me.

And even if they think wearing a cyclist jersey will give them a 1% advantage, what does taking the collar off give you? 0.01%?
I played in one for about 10 before the switch. Its very noticeable in the pissing rain.

Agreed on the collar though - can't imagine there is any difference.
Yeah fair enough. I edited the post ... I'm probably just so old I can't remember.

Excellent colour scheme (even got the green right), but the collar is crap.
