gold and green

It had slipped my mind that Australia had decided on separate home and away kits. It was a pleasure to see them back in their yellow against the Kiwis today (where they are staring at defeat at the moment). Albeit muted compared to their recent bright canary yellow, its far more 'Australian' (to me) than the too-dark green they unvelied in the CB series.

So they will basically wear the green stuff for a month every year during the tri series down under. Seems the theory about it being best suited for the current series sponsor isn't so unlikely after all.

Yeh - and now they're selling those "too green" tops in sports stores in Australia, for $100 a pop! I bet they change the colour again next year too - that way, all the fools will line up again to be parted with another hundred...
