Goodbye to the blue?
Goodbye to the blue?
The Highlanders have confirmed they will play in a new shirt against the Force at Carisbrook on Friday ahead of a permanent switch from their traditional blue jerseys.

The jersey change will be a one-off this season, Highlanders management confirmed today.

However, the franchise plans a permanent switch to the new jersey next season.

The jersey will not be revealed until the team runs out on Friday night.

It understood it is light green with a dark blue strip down the sides and no trace of maroon.

The jersey has traditionally reflected the provincial unions in the Highlanders' catchment - blue for Otago, gold for North Otago and maroon for Southland.

The jersey change continued the rebuild of the franchise with new coach and new management and new offices, Highlanders general manager Roger Clark told the ODT today.
