Canberra abandoned the super-light (almost faded) lime green after a few years and moved to a more traditional "light" green (as worn through their premierships and as their heritage jersey last night) by the latter half of the decade.Canberra wore white, home and away, against Souths in 1982–84 when the Rabbitohs were wearing their “Minties” jersey.

From 1985, when Souths introduced the “red stripe” jersey, both teams wore their regular jerseys as neither had (or needed) an alternate.

And I noticed last night that both teams currently have the wrong shade of green; Souths should be darker, Canberra should be lighter.
1988 was when they darkened (see team photos attached).Canberra abandoned the super-light (almost faded) lime green after a few years and moved to a more traditional "light" green (as worn through their premierships and as their heritage jersey last night) by the latter half of the decade.
With the cotton jerseys, it should be noted that they weren't as, for lack of a better term, "reflective" of light (more matte finish) which did help make things clearer even on the smaller TVs of the time - the Raiders did revive the white alternate for a time in the late 80s and early 90s but unsure if it was worn against Souths. The Raiders probably could/should have come into the league in gold and navy representing the ACT, but could have clashed with Parra who had moved to a very dark shade of royal blue (the Hardiflex era jerseys).
I would like multiple games, same kits, same sponsors. The women's game overall still doesn't seem to have as much care given compared to the men's or other women's comps.Can't they just wear the men's kits? This just seems like they're not putting it up on the same pedestal
I don't know, as I put in brackets I would guess teams can only sell x number of retail jerseys a year - would guess it's around the 5 mark (home, away, special/heritage/charity/etc., ANZAC, indigenous). WT have already got 3 listed - home, away, ANZAC on Roar Store.What are the regulations?
