Brisbane Broncos Nines Kit

Ok, so what about something completely insane? You’re either going to love it, or despise it.

The Broncos toyed with adding black to their Nines jersey earlier this year, but ended up with a mutant black/maroon/gold hybrid that looked more like a manufacturing error than something that was intentional. While I’m not a massive fan of “black for blacks sake” in sports design, I’ve taken the black idea and run with it anyway, giving it a slight twist.

I’ve dropped the maroon entirely, and the gold. Replacing them are dark charcoal (it felt slightly more creative than just choosing plain old black), and the super bright “volt” yellow/green colour that Nike (who manufacture the Broncos’ gear) seem to love.

Oh, and it’s all applied to the Broncos diamond jersey design.

The nines are a place for some creativity to be shown, the tournament only runs for a couple of days and then normality returns. Why not have some fun with it?

Bring back the diamonds!

I really want to see the return of the diamonds as a heritage option for the Broncos. This would make their heritage jersey very distinct from the standard home and away jerseys, and reintroduce what is still a very unique look. They don’t have to make it the permanent heritage jersey, just being able to see it run around a couple of times one season would be fine.

The inverse of my ideal home kit, this away option for the Brisbane Broncos features a gold-dominated jersey and sock, but keeps the maroon shorts to avoid the “banana-man” head-to-toe yellow look that many (aside from myself) didn’t like when the Broncos introduced their all-gold away jersey a few years back.

The Broncos current away jersey is slightly better than last years as they’ve toned down the gradient, but I still don’t like it. Harsh gradients like gold-to-maroon have no place on any jersey.

My ideal Brisbane Broncos home kit, a maroon-dominated throwback to their original jerseys, not intended to be an exact replica, simply a nod to the past and a reinterpretation of a classic look. Maroon, white and gold bands on the sleeves are reflected on both on the shorts and the socks.
