Dividing opinions for decades: playing jerseys. Today a mix of high-performance and fashion, it’s always a point of contention amongst rugby fans.
This is it!
We've reached the final of our #KitChat tournament, where the fans vote for what they believe is the most iconic NSW Waratahs jersey of all time.
In the Semi-Final we saw The Stripes jersey edge out the new XBlade heritage jersey by the slightest of margins to advance to the The Final against the 2014 Championship jersey.
The winner of the #KitChatfinal will be announced next week, who will you vote for?
Immortalised amidst a historic Championship win for the NSW Waratahs in 2014, the entirely sky-blue design will be forever attached to the state’s first Super Rugby title.
The Striped Sleeve
A fan favourite famously worn by the likes of Whitaker, Waugh, Vickerman and co. in the early-2000’s. Featuring a traditional collar with dark-blue striped sleeves, this will be a tough one to beat.
3rd place: Heritage
The original. An iconic piece of our state’s sporting history. An all sky-blue jersey with a traditional white collar, it’s been worn across generations of Waratah and is now re-created and worn each year when we face the Reds.
4th place: The X-Blade
The current playing kit, officially launched in late-2019 with the NSW Waratahs current supplier X-Blades. A fresh take on the famous sky blue, which features dark blue panelling around the collar and sides to complement the playing shorts.
