NRL Nines

2014 Uniforms

Introduction

I’m planning on lumping every team into this post as there is only one design per uniform, the post will be updated as I make the designs.

It’s great to see the reduced format back and a tournament like this is a chance to go wild with team designs because:

  • It doesn’t really compromise the first grade season identity
  • It gives a boost to merchandise sales
  • Nines/sevens is a non traditional atmosphere

I get the occasional comment that a lot of my work is conservative so this is the perfect outlet to make some ridiculous stuff. First, a few guidelines:

  1. Each team has ONE DESIGN ONLY; one jersey, one shorts and one type of socks
  2. As a result of 1., each team must be reasonably distinct, particularly from other teams in their group. I’m not talking about the extent of rules in the proper NRL season but there should at least be a point of contrast or colour difference between opposing teams
  3. Player numbers are not limited to 1-25, a player may choose any number between 1 and 100
  4. Designs are not to be templated (looking at ISC here)

I’m also using pre-existing team logos and none of my own redesigns or renamings.
