Rating every 2023 Super League shirt released so far as Wigan Warriors & Wakefield Trinity impress

As the year draws to a close, excitement is building for the 2023 Super League season.

Plenty of kits have been released for next season so we have rated the ones released so far.

Castleford Tigers Home: 7/10

A shirt that balances dark and light colours very well. A smart looking jersey but one slight niggle is perhaps the dominance of black on the shirt which is a departure from what you’d usually expect from the Tigers.

Huddersfield Giants Home: 7/10

The vee is back at Huddersfield and plenty of fans are delighted. It certainly looks like a smart kit but the only criticism I’d have is that other than the vee the rest of the shirt is a touch plain.

Hull FC Home: 8/10

A lovely smart kit paying tribute to the club’s history. A modern shirt taht respects traditional, it is the quintessential Hull FC shirt but looks very smart and is adorned by gold details.

Hull FC Alternate: 7/10

Unlike their traditional home shirt, Hull FC’s alternate shirt and their Magic Weekend shirt does something radical and new. It should be credited for this but won’t be everyone’s cup of tee.

Hull KR Home: 8/10

A smart and simple shirt from Hull KR going into 2023. Some have said it looks too much like an Arsenal shirt but it is a lovely modern kit which maintains Hull KR’s usual look.

Hull KR Alternate: 8/10Β 

The Robins’ alternate kit and Magic Weekend shirt pays homage to their win over Queensland in 1983 and the Maroons themselves would be happy to wear this shirt. A lovely mix of maroon and gold.

Leeds Rhinos Home: 8/10

A bit of a different look for the Rhinos are they use a navy blue base as well as a white strip round the middle of the shirt. A really smart shirt for the Rhinos and a bit of a different look.

Leeds Rhinos Away: 7/10

Leeds’ away kit seems to take ques from the Premier League with so many top football teams with jerseys of this colour. A modern look but not one that screams Leeds Rhinos.

Leigh Leopards Home: 6/10

A bold new look for a bold new era at Leigh, credit for their commitment to the rebrand with a shirt like no other but it certainly won’t be everyone’s cup of tee.

Wakefield Trinity Home: 9/10

Criticised by some fans for looking too much like a Leeds Rhinos shirt, the gold detailing is superb as are the lights and dark blue stripes which create a smart yet visually interesting shirt.

Wakefield Trinity Away: 10/10

Some Wakefield fans may wish that their away shirt was their home shirt. Still with gold detailing to celebrate the club’s anniversary, it has a white base and red and blue stripes in a modern, traditional and smart jersey.

Wigan Warriors Home: 8/10

Like many on this list, Wigan have respected tradition with their 2023 home shirt but has added a modern splash to it. A really smart decision.

Wigan Warriors Away: 7/10

Similar to the Hull FC away kit, the Warriors have done something different with their away kit with a black base with green, blue and purple lines making their way across the kit. Ambitious and it sticks the landing.
