Leeds Rhinos reveal new kit for 2022 season

Leeds Rhinos have revealed a unique twist on a traditional look for their new home kit for the 2022 Betfred Super League season with the shirt featuring a traditional blue and amber design but with Rob Burrow’s famous number 7 interwoven into the amber band across the chest. 

Since Leeds Rhinos legend Rob Burrow MBE was diagnosed with motor neurone disease in December 2019, his famous squad number has been the catalyst for unprecedented awareness and fundraising for those battling against the life limiting disease. Now the Rhinos players will have a constant reminder of that inspiration across their chest when they take the field throughout 2022.

Rhinos official technical kit partners OXEN have continued their support of Rob Burrow that began last season with the seven stripes running throughout the current home shirt. In addition throughout 2021, OXEN worked closely with the MND Association, donating over £50,000 inspired by Rob Burrow and they will continue to do so next year through a variety of projects to be announced in the future.

The shirt features an amber collar and sleeve trim as well as the traditional Leeds irregular amber hoops on a predominantly blue shirt with white shorts and blue and amber socks. Inside the collar, is the message Spirit of the Rhinos, which features above the tunnel at Emerald Headingley as the team walk onto the pitch for each home game.

Commenting on the 2022 home shirt, Leeds Rhinos star Jack Broadbent said, “It will be a privilege and honour to put on the famous blue and amber hoops that are so special in our clubs history. We are fortunate as a playing group to be surrounded by legends of the club from the recent past and further back in our history and this shirt links us all. The way OXEN have incorporated the number seven in the design too makes this shirt extra special and I know it will mean a lot to the lads every time we run out in it.”
