    "The bold new design, which will only be worn by the team for the second game of the 2019 Origin series at Optus Stadium in Perth"

    Better hurry, it's limited edition.

    If they were hoping to profit off the sales they should have put some more time into the design.

    Speaking of...

    NSW AWAY JERSEY

    WTF is going on with having a SoO away jersey? Aside from looking terrible and being the jersey of a team of fucking no hopers... since when does SoO need an alternate jersey to avoid clashes? And given the QLD jersey is a dark maroon how is having dark blue a better outcome then having light blue?

    And, funnily enough, the NIB logo on that one is also fucked - but it sits too low (as opposed to Newcastle's too high) on the sleeve and clashes with the Chevron on the sleeve.

    Yep, agreed, Fittler....can dominate fuck knuckle Qlders all day long, but has no idea about jerseys!

    exactly right mate, they should have made it appealing enough to make people want to get it.
    Origin jerseys change every year anyway and they are promotional items in them selves. Making a "limited edition" of a SOO is sad IMO

    Yeah, it's not great, but not as bad as the NIB.

    Yeah me neither. I like the retro idea it seems to be threatening to draw from but it’s just a bit meh in execution. The 2 tone maroon and stripes combination makes it look from the early 90s and the early 00s at the same time. Trying to do too much at once, which is a bit jarring against the recent trend of ultra simple designs.

    I don't like the white on the sleeve. Looks like a jersey from best and less.

    Enough is enough. The NRL needs to step in and force all teams to use the same designer that the Warriors do. That silver one looks mint.

    *SNAP*

    I was with Medibank for over 10 years. It's more expensive than others, felt the same, value for money, don't use it that much, more for emergencies or unforseen problems and went to NIB. First time in 10 years I recived a call from Medibank. Gave them a piece of my mind, that if I was such a valued and longterm customer why hadn't they offered me a better deal while I was still a customer rather than trying to woo me back.

    Now NIB. Range of no gap dentists is much more restricted, 2 for 1 glasses at spec asvers and pretty much everywhere doesn't apply. It's cheaper for a reason and therfor you pay gap. You can move your $$$ around between the different extra covers though which is cool.

    In hindsight I did like the conveinience of going pretty much anywhere with Medibank and just handing over my card.

    Go Bupa. I get 2 pairs of free glasses a year and dentist visits pays for itself. I don’t even need glasses, just get them done with non-prescription lenses, boom, free designer sunnies.

    you cant get expensive sunnies for the 2 pairs thing can ya.. they only come off the very basic range?
    I went into OPSM with their deal a few years ago thinking the same thing, but they wanted to charge me basically 180 for a pair of prescription ray bans (i dont wear glasses), so I just ended up buying them normally

    Just wait til they have a sale and the price brackets you can choose from changes - last ones I got in the mid-year sales and got a pair of Ray Bans and a pair of Country Road. I didnt even really need them, I still have the 2 free pairs I got the year before. All you need is a prescription (they give you one for blank lenses still) and thats paid for by Bupa aswell. Its a great scam.
