New year, new kits. 

The four Super Rugby franchises have each tweaked their kits for the 2019 season, keeping things simple for the new year.

Take a look at the four teams' jerseys for the season below.

Super Rugby kicks off on Friday February 15 with the Brumbies hosting the Rebels in Canberra. 

REBELS

The Rebels have stripped their design back to a simple navy blue look in 2019, taking out a white gradient from the past season.

Their away jersey is similar to past years, with a predominantly white strip containing blue and red stripes.

WARATAHS

Gone are the red accents of 2018 and instead the Waratahs will wear a white jersey with blue stripes that feature a waratah design.

The Waratahs are also expected to wear their popular heritage jersey again in a home game.


The simple sky blue kit with a white collar was introduced by NSW when they played against Queensland at the SCG last year, to mark their long association with the ground.

Fans loved it but the jersey wasn't made available for public sale. The 2019 jersey is now on sale, however.

BRUMBIES

Both their main and alternate kits have kept the old school design they returned to in 2018 but next year their secondary jersey will be all blue.

Last year both kits were simply reverse designs of each other, with white and navy designs.

REDS

The Reds are going back to maroon full-time in 2019. They were the first side to confirm their jersey for the new year, bringing back their classic maroon.

The maroon kit Queensland first wore in 1894 carried them through until 2006.

That's when the jersey transformed to the red strip the team has worn until now.

Coach Brad Thorn donned the Queensland State of Origin strip 14 times and he openly encouraged the change.

"When you think about representing sport in Queensland, you think about maroon," he said.

"It’s great to recognise our history and be back in the maroon jersey again."
