Actually pretty neutral
Really hoping for Geelong home/white and us home/home. Or at least Geelong home/navy and us home/white. Feel like we will wear the red even though we aren't playing in Victoria.
Red is worn vs Hawthorn in Launceston so I assume it's "away vs Vic teams".

Sponsorship logos have dictated Brisbane have to wear Red or white jumpers in away games, not sure if their sponsors are swapping this year for home and away or not, if they are then Geelong will have to be in Navy Shorts and Brisbane in Red with White Shorts

It’s also worn away against West Coast, Fremantle and Port Adelaide when they could probably just wear their home (or the white clash), so i do expect them to wear it tonight as it’s an away game.

Not sure on the correct term but all logos on field are added through the broadcast. Behind the goals camera showing no logos on field

Looks like they hadn't bothered (or didn't have the chance?) to repaint the logos on the ground. You could see faded remnants of the Rebel logo in each goalsquare.

Are there any NRL games scheduled at the SCG this weekend? Only reason why they wouldn’t paint the logos...

No NRL games at SCG this weekend, but the Roosters have a game there next Thursday.

Speaking of NRL, the Warriors strip tonight is a contender for worst footy jersey of all time.

More predictable white shorts from the Hawks. Although in this case I wouldn't advocate for the alternative (Pies in dark/light vs Hawks in light/dark). The problem is Hawthorn's mismatched home kit, and also the fact that white shorts are turned to as a default even though there is no need to introduce white.

I also don't think shorts matter as near as much in preventing a clash in footy as they do in other sports like soccer. I would have no issue with both sides in dark shorts tonight. The 2002 and 2003 grand finals are a great example of how it can work with no issue.

The problem is Hawthorn don't have gold shorts.
