The Kit

A look at how MOB’s playing strip and off-field attire has evolved over the years

From its humble beginnings as a Wests jersey, the M.O.B. playing strip has evolved into a unique and dynamic beast. One element remains constant: Poo And Wee.

Each year the playing strip design is a mystery to the vast majority of tourists until it is ceremoniously revealed on the Friday evening of the Byron event.

Playing number on your jersey is your M.O.B. number, which is allocated to you when you first join and remains with you for life. Read more about M.O.B. numbers here.

The playing strip is complemented by off field attire, typically in the form of a brown wife-beater singlet.

The 2017 MOB Byron Sevens tour kit and theme is currently in planning. What on earth will it be next?

M.O.B. Kit Design History

2016

The MOBlympics

2016 was an Olympic year, and the first time Rugby Sevens has been at the games. So MOB felt it was fitting to create a kit that emulated our Aussie Sevens heroes, paying homage to the great game and sharp threads they were sporting in Rio. Of course ours was better than Australia’s because we had beer on ours.

2015

The MOB World Cup

The 2015 Rugby World Cup happened to coincide with the Byron Bay Sevens, so MOB created a fitting tribute with the playing kit and entire tour theme including a range of activities to celebrate. Although MOB was not victorious, Rugby was definitely the winner on the day.

2014

MOBOPOLY

Like Monopoloy, only way more fun. We took kit design one step further and created an entire tour theme with activities included – a Byron Bay version of Monopoly, except a drinking game with all sorts of interesting challenges that shall not be reported outside the sanctity of the touring goup.

2013

Cam-MOB-flage

We assume the MOB identity each October, masked by our camoflage. So this year we wore it – a camo print comprising four elements of the MOB crest: Footy, Song, Beer and Boobs.

2012

V8 SuperMOB

Nothing says west of Sydney better than a V8 Supercar. This was our tribute to the bogan muscle of a V8.

2011

Wild Wild West

Gun-slingin’ sherriffs from the Wild Wild West of Sydney

2010

Westies

Showcasing our Western Sydney heritage – a poo & wee flannelette shirt with the sleeves rolled up and a packet of Winnie Reds tucked in.

2009

Chippendales

2008

Pin Stripe

The ultimate on and off-field attire. This outfit refelected the refinement of the gentlemen of MOB.

2007

Aussie Rules

Such a good idea that we gave it a second run. That and thet fact that we could behave badly and people simply thought we were Hawthorn AFL club.

2006

Aussie Rules

So many similarities between MOB and an elite AFL team: the colours and um…the colours. Well at least it meant that if we were losing at rugby we could win at Aussie Rules (except we lost at that too).
