Looks good but I think the sleeve sponsorship takes away from it a little bit

V's are way too big, same with the Magpies one....much bigger than they used to be

I dont like it. Ive like many of the previous Balmain heritage jumpers....this one - meh

At least it has proper Orange unlike our jerseys

Its a big v alright. weird.

Still... a big V is better than none at all.

I think we should play in the V all the time. Either black\white or orange\black. Its simple, it looks great, its historic and never looks dated. But that's just me.

Do you reckon one day there will be a Retro 2005 Jersey??

Why do people like the V so much?

I quite like that all-black jersey. Reminds me of better days, semi-finals and the like...

We followed our teams for years, the teams we loved, for year after year, decades even...the jumper didnt change. Both Wests & Balmain had prominent V's
It became ingrained behind the eyeballs, etched into the brain - the senses knew nothing else.

Not like today when something different every few seasons

Ahh, okay, that's fair enough. I only started following NRL/Tigers well after 05.

It doesnt look quite right does it??

Interesting that St George and Souths never change their jerseys yet sides like us, Penrith and the Warriors have a different jersey every week.

It looks too unbalanced for me because the V is too long. The bottom black V should be where the golden V above it is and work upwards from there.

That's why I only wear my Victa jumper to games Ink. Why would I go out and pay $150 for a Wests Tigers jumper and it becoming obsolete in 12 months?

Its to accomodate both the V's and the sponsorsip

The sponsorships used to be at about elbow level at the expense of the V's - which were often cut off at the bottom

Now the sponsorships are more prominent, but they know the V's are a big selling point too....but having them both just dont quite work right

Unfortunately the Maggies heritage jersey doesn't suit old Arthur in that photo, it looks like the big V is pointing to remind him where his todger is!

The older ones where the V is cut off at the bottom to accomodate the sponsers' name look great I reckon, should go back to them.

That 'dude' looks a lot like Wests legend Mr Trevor Cogger to me.

There are different reasons why we all have certain jerseys and don't have others. As silly as it sounds, I wear my old & new retros all the time as I prefer the good old cotton.

The last polyester type jersey I bought was the limited edition '05 premiership jersey. I hate the latest material that the jerseys are now made of. Silly I know as I live in hot old Rocky.
