The Panthers have already toyed with adding gold to their Nines kit, so it’s further introduction to their jersey’s would be no great surprise.

For my nines concept I’ve drawn on inspiration from the popular ‘liquorice allsorts’ jerseys from the early 90s. I’ve continued the chocolate and gold theme from my home and away concepts, but the gold has been dialed up to 11 with gold shorts and gold hoops on the socks. After all, it is the Nines, if you’re going to do something crazy, do it at the Nines.

There is nothing subtle about these stripes. A white base with bold chocolate-coloured vertical stripes calling back to these gems that were first worn in the mid-70s. The chocolate and white continues through to the hoops on the socks.

Unlike the originals I’ve paired these jerseys with white shorts primarily to make sure this is a ‘light’ kit to contrast the ‘dark’ all-chocolate home kit, however there’s absolutely no reason they couldn’t mix and match and wear the darker shorts with this jersey.

I haven’t continued the vertical strips onto the back of the jersey for two reasons – first to keep it clear and make sure the numbers stand out, secondly to keep this as a predominantly white jersey.

A few days ago the Panthers revealed their 50th anniversary logo which hints at gold featuring at some level on their jerseys for next season, I’ve made use of this logo in a couple of ways, I’ve adapted into the primary logo featured on the jersey (as an alternative to the standalone panther on the current jerseys), it also restores the name ‘Penrith’ to the logo which many fans would be keen on. The 50th logo itself has been included on the back of the jerseys.

From there I’ve gone all-in on the chocolate (deep brown) and gold colour scheme, the brown itself being a return to the colour they wore during the first half of their existence before switching it out for black in the early 90s.

This home kit is predominantly chocolate, with subtle two-tone vertical stripes on the jersey, and hoops on the socks. The shoulder and shorts striping is inspired by one of their earliest jerseys, although I’ve gone with four stripes instead of two. While the vertical stripes and sock striping is inspired by the jerseys they first wore in the mid-70s – I’ve based by away concept directly on these.
