Clash jumper for Hawthorn next week. Hawthorn have played Fremantle twice in Perth since 2013. Clash / White was used for the game in 2014, and the second game was a final in which Hawthorn wore Hone / WhiteInterestingly, on the Hawthorn brown jumper, it's been worn in away games vs Essendon (R1), Melbourne (R7), Collingwood (R9), [Sydney (R10) - Indigenous], but not vs Port (R11) [or Geelong (R17) - Luke Hodge commemoration inside the collar on the gold jumper].
So it's looking like it's another case of the clash rules only applying when it's not against the bigger Vic teams. At least that's consistent I guess!
Going by this pattern I expect next weekend vs Fremantle will be gold, R20 vs Richmond will be gold (I don't think they've ever worn the brown vs Richmond as it'd be two teams in dark jumpers with yellow/gold bits), and R22 vs Carlton will be brown.
Hawthorn went through a stage of wearing their white jumper (first the Hawk-head then the Hawk-V) in a number of away games, such as Freo and Port. That's probably where the game in the white jumper came about.Clash jumper for Hawthorn next week. Hawthorn have played Fremantle twice in Perth since 2013.

So really, it's the worst ever clash, in that it tried so hard but failedFrom 1975-1986, Melbourne changed the navy blue in their jumpers to royal blue.
One might think that this would clash badly with Footscray's royal blue, red & white jumpers, but it doesn't.
There are quite a few videos of Footscray vs. Melbourne matches from this era on Youtube, and there are no problems telling the Bulldogs and Demons apart. That the design of both jumpers is very different (red & white hoops on blue jumper vs. solid blue jumper with red yoke), that the blue in the Melbourne jumpers is a shade darker than the Bulldogs jumpers, that Footscray wore blue socks and Melbourne red socks and with the away team wearing white shorts, there was no clash between the teams so far as I could see.
I never knew South wore Geelong style jumpers - I have seen their last two Grand Finals on Youtube in 1964 (Premiers) and 1979 (Runner Up) and in both matches, the Panthers were wearing Carlton style jumpers that they still wear today.South's at the time also used to have white collars and cuffs
Also keep in mind South's also used to wear hooped jumpers that were primarily white.
Quite early-on it seems;I never knew South wore Geelong style jumpers - I have seen their last two Grand Finals on Youtube in 1964 (Premiers) and 1979 (Runner Up) and in both matches, the Panthers were wearing Carlton style jumpers that they still wear today.
When did South wear hooped navy and white jumpers?
everything about the hawks/swans rivalry is fantastic, from the history, to the guarantee of a good contest, it always looks great on TV tooI never talk about footy jumpers with my better half, she loves the game but her passion for the game centres more around her favourites in Geelong and doesn't stray too far from there. But last night while watching the Hawks play the Swans without and prompting she said, "wow this is a good game to watch, it is so easy to tell who is who...unlike watching Carlton play Collingwood." Right then and there I realised why she is my fiancee, never going to let that girl go!
In this case 1 is void as the Dogs had to move their kits from Belmore to Homebush (20-30 minute drive depending on traffic).usually teams don't because of three reasons:
a) the excess travel weight
b) pure laziness
c) they brought what they thought was the correct uniform
And as the article stated, the uniform they brought was not approved for that game so they clearly knew it was the incorrect uniform.In this case 1 is void as the Dogs had to move their kits from Belmore to Homebush (20-30 minute drive depending on traffic).
2 and 3 are the more likely, with 2 probably being the main reason.
