Saints really should just do a Sydney and have a white-backed version of their home jumper as a clash. With full white collar and cuffs it would work perfectly.
They did use to have a clash jumper like that. It was worn in the 2010 Grand Finals.

When was the last time the Lions wore their home strip outside of Brisbane?
Home Jumper:
Rd 15, 2012, In Sydney.
There have been times since then that Brisbane have worn one off jumpers (using the home jumper as a base), outside Brisbane.

Home Jumper with Maroon Shorts:
2007, v Sydney, North, Melbourne, Carlton

GWS in home jumper with white shorts in a home game:
Rd15, 2013 v Western Bulldogs (GSW in Canberra Jumper).
I was at this game, and very surprised with what I was seeing.

Very sensible uniform decision for Giants-Lions. Looks good.

Goes against everything they've been doing with Geelong this year though.
Nah, this is obviously the AFL just following the White shorts when away for all clubs, EVEN when it unnecessarily adds white to the travelling team who have no white in their colours, and DEFINITELY when you’re playing a team with a white based jumper, UNLESS you’re a Victorian Club with some sway who gets to wear what they want, BUT disregarded entirely if you’re an interstate side playing an interstate side in which we then contradict our own rule, rule*

Given the AFL owns GWS, they will wear whatever Gil tells them to wear. The Victorian clubs with 100+ year histories have a lot more say in this aspect
