So what's the opinion of the tinplate/black/grey/whatever shirts after seeing them in the flesh? To be honest even though I bought one, I wasn't over impressed. They looked faded and tired somehow. Bit like our second half performance LOL

I like em. The green on the dyfed steel logo makes it look a bit weird though. Doesn't really go

What excuse did they give for the colour?  Something like 'traditional colour' and all that.  A bit like those brown and red ones from a few years back.  Nooooooooooooooo!
Scarlet is red as far as I'm aware.  I liked the green as a second colour, not 'away' strip, we're still the Scarlets when we're away so why change?
Maybe a black shirt with a copper coloured top, sponsored by Duracell, would do the trick and keep performances going beyond the first half.

I quite like it. I didn't think we needed to wear it Sunday though. Leicester have a bit of red in their shirt but it would have been fine to wear scarlet.

I think they're great. Black sells (Ok it's not technically black but may as well be). The tinplate or whatever they called it is just trying to justify it.

Even at the kit launch I thought they looked faded. I'd buy one, but the red was an out and out winner for me.

The Scarlet top is the nicest we've had in a long time though.

I haven't bought one yet, but I like them.
The stadium may change, but the dream will remain the same!

The black shirts look crap on the pitch. IMO we should always play in Scarlet unless there is a clash. They can do what they want with colours for the leisurewear. Whatever sells I guess..

Dyfed Steels logo spoils it for me. If the Logo was in the style of the WRW logo it would be OK.

The slightly abraded/casual look is deliberate. A scouring agent take the sheen down and gives the fabric an 'authentic' appearance and handle, and after that the........................WTF am I doing....sorry.
