I like the 'never surrender' jumper (I did not know it was called that) a lot, but feel like it needs a bit more orange.
I think some thin orange stripes down the sides and orange cuffs/collar would look good.
Last year's training jumper. Straight inverse for the away/clash (basically what they have now) and they've got themselves a great set of jumpers.

The red bulldogs clash i think i can recall that being pulled coz of bad results?
Just looked into their stats with the red jumper - they went winless (0-5) over 3 seasons with it before they binned it after 2015. It's a shame because I thought it was a nice and effective clash jumper.

Just an idea I had for a black-based Crusader. Probably more suitable as a home kit.

Wow yeah I was gonna say surely I couldn't have been the only person to make a dark-based Crusader before. Looks much stronger as a home kit than the OG Crusader. And while it might not have the history that the tri-panel has behind it, it's certainly a lot more expressive of the Saints identity.

I personally loved the kit. The 'red' of the jumper was a bit off, and perhaps the red shorts were a bit too much, but otherwise I'd wish they brought this back as just another alternate to wear away.

They wore red shorts with it too? That looks insane, love it

They did also test it out with white shorts in 2015. I think having both options would be good if they ever brought it back in the future.
And I agree the red they used seems a bit pink? Would look even better if they had picked the right shade

Always thought they should try something like this.

My rationale on the bars is the should use them in the order blue, red, white instead of just swapping the colours.

Red Back crusader would be nicer.

What red is this? This should be SUNS red
Regular St Kilda red isn't it.

The Suns red is slightly brighter isn't it. Again it's probably meant to be the same and is just the result of the manufacturers / materials. I know the Suns blue is meant to be lighter than Royal Blue.

This is what I have for Gold Coast.

I think most teams should follow Adelaide's lead and have at least two other alternate jumpers that are compatible with white shorts.

I tend to think darker kits are usually better suited as home kits, but that looks great as an away/clash kit. Only problem with making that a home kit is it looks rather similar to Sydney's.
