Canberra Raiders 2016
Here are the Canberra Raiders jersey designs for 2016.
They will use at least 4 jerseys in 2016.
They are manufactured by ISC.
The Canberra Raiders have opted to not changed their home jersey this year. Their might be slight changes with the collar changing from blue to green and vice versa but it is almost identical.
Again there is not much change from 2015, however the Raiders haven’t released any official images as of yet, however they wore this jersey in a trial match against Newcastle, so you can assume it’s the same one they will be wearing this year.
So this is new from the raiders. Well sort of. It’s the same design of the yellow away jersey but instead of yellow they have gone with a predominantly green design. I’m a fan of this version over the yellow. It doesn’t look as faded and more in line with the raiders theme of green.
ALTERNATE 2 – RICKY STUART’S AUTISM FOUNDATION
This jersey will be worn in the round 12 match against the Canterbury Bulldogs.
INDIGENOUS JERSEY – WORN IN ROUND 18 VS NORTH QUEENSLAND COWBOYS
I’m not really a fan of their Nines jersey. Again, they went with the same in 2015 so nothing new to report on well except for the austbrokers canberra sponsor instead of the usual huawei. Other than that, It’s a little bland for me.
Verdict: 5/10. It’s hard to rate the Raiders this year as they have only introduced one new design so far so I can’t really give them points for originality. However with that being said, I really like their home jersey. Very simple, but they wear it well. The Away and Nines versions just don’t sit right with me. They just don’t look right. I would like to see them incorporate their alternate jersey a bit more this year and fade out their faded yellow version. Lets hope they can lift themselves off the bottom of the jersey table when they release some more jerseys this year.
How I scored them:
Auckland Nines: 1/2.5
