PNG looks like it should adorn the front of a big diesel locomotive, or actually one of those old streamlined steam loco's.
The US looks like a basketball top.
The Brits ought be worn by Tim Brooke Taylor in the Goodies under a jacket,
the Irish could be a nice stubbie holder,

I actually like the Scandanavian contributions the best.

I'm glad you liked some of them - thought you were going to rattle through and put all of them to an alternative use!

Must admit I reckon the old USA one was fine - very brash and in your face American, but that's the way they play so represented the team well.

Would be nice for people to focus on what jumpers they like best, rather than dis-like.

Personally I like Finland's, India's, China's and Samoa's best - like the tattoo on the roo's bicep. Britain's is very Austin Powers, but maybe that's because Austin made the flag his own? Still looks good.

Note that we've just received the front side of the New Zealand and Irish jumpers, so shortly they will replace the current versions we had up.

Just a quick question to anyone who knows: Are the arrows on the South Africa jumper actually a part of the design, or just remnants of the design process?

Don't know 100%, but pretty sure you're correct, just some design marks, not the final product.

No offense to the Americans but the new jersey is horrible... They should have stuck to the original design - it was a lot nicer!! I think the Canadian and Finnish jerseys are far and away the nicest!!

Have teams got clash strips? I think our clash strip is is a white on black with the same graphics!

The South African jumper looks like a big ad for something, just horrible, doesn't stir any national pride or emotion at all.
I agree also that the USA jumper was better before. The best was the Sweden Elks Jumper for the (Elk?) head on the front and the strong colours!

Keeping with Bretts request, presented will all to purchase I would buy the Swedish elk one hands down...no contest..

Maybe 2nd the Samarais, more from novelty and the Saints colors are always good even though Im a Blues man, but the others wouldnt get any of my cash, no way...

Oops got negative there at the end there.

Sweden 8/10
Japan 7/10

Anyone know why only the Indian and Peres jumpers have "150 years" logos on them ?

At first I thought it was because they are debut teams, but China, Sweden and Finland don't have them.

Is this because they are sponsored by the AFL or some AFL foundation ? or because there was room on there for another logo.
