Well as we are in the second week of August with the season only just over three weeks away, has any club put out their strips for the new season yet.
As of this moment in time here at Bristol we are still being told its is due some time in August LOL

I know that we're not Championship, but Coventry played the first half of their pre-season game at Leicester Lions on  in their new season home kit. 

It's a conventional dark blue and white hooped Coventry kit, with a plain dark blue back, allowing white numbers to be very easily read. 

The replica kit, and leisurewear, by O'Neills is already available for online order, and already some supporters have received their kit. It was announced on 22/7.

The whole point of having a change strip is that it can be worn when the first choice colours clash with the opposition kit.  The key question for me is always could both kits be worn by opposing teams - if not, the change kit isn't fit for purpose.  And to me, those two Leeds kits are too similar to be worn on a wet, muddy pitch in the middle of winter.

I remember Pirates came down (or is it up...?) to ODP a few years ago with two sets of kit - one was red, white and black, and the other was black, white and red.  They changed at half-time, but it made absolutely no difference to the clash with our scarlet jerseys.  Mind you, we once had a first choice kit of red with thin black hoops, and a change strip of black with thin red hoops.  First game of the season was at Blackheath, and they had to change into their pale blue second kit at half-time because neither of our shirts was suitable.

Ours is all Dark green with white collar or Grey and white hoops.

Never liked grey kit. Don't see why we cant have green and white hoops for at least one of the kits.

once both teams wore our kit for the second half, one the home & one the away
 
this is why events unnerve me

Won't be a problem for Bristol this season.

Who doesn't love a new kit? Loved our original coloured red/blue stripes (who knew) for the 135th year last season.

The mind boggles sometimes at the thought (or lack of) patterns of those who choose.
Thankfully our Blue/White home, and Red away change are pretty contrasty. Quite like the change kit to be honest, but I reckon it ought to incorporate green to make it a true Cov kit (rather as our tenants Coventry United use for their home strip, but perhaps not the same pattern).

It's been a while since we had a traditional maroon & sky hooped shirt. No complaints here. 

All white with the insertion of a test card is a pretty standard change kit

Ours is a rather smart green and white job with hooped green and white socks and a blue and white change strip.
Looks good.
If only Nottingham was in Wales it would be perfect.

Pirates are going with hoops for the new season, red and white hoops with an irregular black hoop too.
I may live in Surrey, but my heart is in Cornwall.

Not a lot as not bothering yet again to get one, Its blue and white hoops only for me, Bristol Rugby have never had red (except for the bass triangle) in our home strip and that's how it should be!
