Southern Orcas

Stumbling over the line for this set, here’s my last team.

The NZ Rivalry

I covered it in my post on the Warriors but general idea was to split the nation into two halves. The rest … Read More

Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks

The second half of today’s double-post is the Sharks, last of the existing NRL teams.

Logo

The current Sharks logo has a pretty cool rendering of a shark, albeit very light on detail. I changed the … Read More

North Queensland Cowboys

There’s a double post today so I can crank out all of the existing NRL teams prior to the season starting.

Logo

Another change to the Cowboys logo, this time I’ve moved away from using a … Read More

South Sydney Rabbitohs

And now onto the self proclaimed “Pride of the League”. This set is more about righting wrongs and re-introducing clarity than anything.

Colours

I can’t stand South’s current emphasis on black in their uniforms. It was … Read More

Adelaide Rams

An Adelaide based NRL club is very unlikely to join the NRL any time soon but eventually including the Rams would be essential in establishing a national footprint.

I wanted to change the previous Ram … Read More

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

A quick update on this set before I dive into the Bulldogs, I’m close to finishing all the teams I had planned on. There are 22 teams in total with 4 existing teams (Bulldogs, Rabbitohs, Cowboys and Sharks) … Read More

Rockhampton Crushers

Another expansion team I introduced in my last set was the Rockhampton Crushers, a resurrection/relocation of the South Queensland Crushers. It was a good name for South East Queensland but is an even better one for Central Queensland, … Read More

Penrith Panthers

With the lukewarm response to my last Panthers set, I’ve decided to overhaul the entire concept. I totally get if Panthers fans will hate this but I’m just throwing stuff at a wall to see what sticks. The … Read More

Canberra Raiders

The Raiders are my team and in the past I’ve found it tough to make drastic changes to what they’ve had. I’ve thrown a bit of caution to the wind and updated their classic look.

Central Coast Bears

Next up is what would be my local team, the Central Coast Bears.

Logo

The logo is based on the original North Sydney “Bear in a football” logo adopted in the late 1950’s.

Obviously the … Read More

Parramatta Eels

Again, little has changed from last year although I have place more emphasis on the contrasting stripe colour by making them wider (thick/thin/thick/thin/thick/thin/thick) which retains the style but adds more balance to the blue jersey in particular. Not much else … Read More

Jagera Jets

The Jets are another one of my expansion teams which I have come back to visit.

Name

Originally, I had this team under the name “South Queensland”. However, the name “Jagera” (the tribe occupying the region south-west of … Read More

Sydney Roosters

24/9/2015: This concept has been modified to avoid legal action.

I really haven’t made many changes to my Roosters set from last year, and that set isn’t far removed from what they actually wear; the Roosters are a … Read More

How many New Zealand Teams?

I spent a bit of time over the last few months, figuring how many teams New Zealand would/could sustain in the medium term (10-25 years into the future). With the current state of … Read More

Manly-Warringah Sea-Eagles

Moving from West Coast to East. The Sea-Eagles have bounced around with their identity over the past 20 years, away from the look most associated with the Silvertails moniker. The aim here is to bring their identity more … Read More

West Coast Pirates

The WA bid took everyone by surprise when they switched their branding from the Reds to Pirates. The brand is “almost there” but still needs some fine-tuning, which I have set out to do here.

Colours

Black/red/yellow … Read More

Brisbane Broncos

I’ve already leaked my Broncos designs but I wanted to add another (highly requested) retro alt.

Uniforms

I leaked these designs before the actual 2013 jerseys came out so the appearance of a yoke in the designs is … Read More

St. George-Illawarra Dragons

I aimed to more closely integrate the two identities. Its a more subtle effort than with the Tigers though it may be more controversial with St. George’s V dominating the jerseys.

From my previous Dragons post:

Melbourne Storm

With the Storm just releasing their new design, which is a modest upgrade of their last set, I decided to add my contribution for them early.

Colours

I love the emphasis on purple of late. It really sets … Read More

Newcastle Knights

The Knights have pretty much nailed their identity outside of their uniforms. The actual home jersey is terrible and their attempts to return to the Barca stripes, although a good idea, hasn’t had the best execution (imo). The … Read More
