Following the launch of the NSW Mining jersey on Friday, let’s look at what the Newcastle Knights will be wearing in season 2014.
The home jersey is unchanged for season 2014 and will again be worn predominately throughout the season. The design reflects the Club’s heritage, with the red and blue vertical stripes.
It is worn with blue shorts and predominately blue socks with a red stripe.
This season's away jersey has been loosely based on the 2004 alternate jersey with a modern feel. The jersey is predominately white (as required) with the traditional red and blue colours at the top and sides.
The shorts and socks are white and this strip will be worn at away games when the home jersey is deemed to clash with the oppositions.
Inspired by the NRL’s annual Women in League round, the Knights will wear pink for the first time when they take on the Penrith Panthers and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in rounds 9 and 10 respectively. It is based on the home jersey, with pink replacing the red panels.
It is worn with the blues shorts and like the jersey, the red stripe on the sock is pink.
The 2014 Indigenous jersey was design by a local indigenous artist in conjunction with the Club's kit supplier ISC.
The jersey was unveiled for the highly successful Indigenous Trial in February against the First Nations Goannas. It will next be worn in the NRL Close the Gap Round against the New Zealand Warriors in Round 23 at Hunter Stadium.
The Indigenous jersey is worn with the blue shorts and socks.
This jersey was specifically designed for the inaugural NRL Auckland Nines tournament. It proved highly popular with the Club's Members and supporters given the one-off design.
The Newcastle Knights designed a new fluro orange hi-viz jersey to show support for the 12,000 mining industry workers and their families who live and work in the Hunter and love their footy.
From head to toe, the jersey, shorts and socks resemble a miner’s uniform.
This will be worn for one home game and one away game this season.
