I think that kit is our version of the MUFC grey kit of many years ago because they never won whilst wearing it. Players at that time said that they found it difficult to pick out their team mates. I'm hopeful that the next instalment of Fumblings will address the issue.


They won at Sale wearing the (very average) light blue kit. :D


Facts! Ha! Bu**er, that's blown my theory out of the water and I have never taken so badly to previous kits.

Imagine if they forgot someone... I hope they triple checked!

I like it though - great sentiment.

Not quite - I'm not on it. Oh hang on, that might have been a dream I had a while ago!

I've now been told that, as of the end of last season, 1935 players had appeared for Gloucester first XV since 1873. Even if a player came on once as a replacement he has still been counted. To date, another 11 players have made their debuts this season, making the current total 1946.

Anybody fancy counting the names on the Heritage shirt to see if this all adds up?

I thought our European shirt of La Rochelle fame was the original colour shirt?

If I remember correctly that on was to commemorate the anniversary of Kingsholm where it was worn first.

The Yellow/Red/Black shirt was to replicate the first home shirt at Kingsholm.
