White versus Black

Monday, April 5th, 2010

Richmond Tigers played the Western Bulldogs on Easter Sunday , 4th April, The Tigers ,who were the Home Side wore their traditional black guernsey , jersey , jumper with the yellow sash.

The Western Bulldogs, the Away side , wore the white clash strip that is becoming more popular with clubs .

It provides a distinctive contrast to the other team especially if one of the teams is wearing black .

More evidence of this trend was at the Essendon Bombers versus the Fremantle Dockers Match on Easter Sunday .

The Bombers wore their traditional Home strip of black with a red sash . The Dockers wore their all white clash strip with the purple anchor emblazoned on the front .

Results from both games saw big wins to the white or clash strip wearers. A victory to the whites versus the blacks .

With the resounding success enjoyed by the non traditional white jumper wearers will more teams adopt this white clash strip?

Only time will tell but these white jumpers , jerseys , guernseys will probably become highly collectable .
