Port Adelaide hits out at Collinwood’s AFL Women’s guernsey

Collingwood released its 2017 AFL Women’s guernsey on Thursday, with a design that is remarkably similar to Port Adelaide’s traditional prison bar strip.

The Power are not impressed with the copy cat guernsey, sending out several tweets and also publishing an article on the club website about the guernsey.

“Bereft of ideas, Collingwood adopts prison bars for women’s team,” the title reads.

“Collingwood has two guernseys in the AFL – the traditional white with three black stripes, and the black guernsey with white stripes which replaced it in 2000,” the article goes on to say.

“So, spoilt for choice, it makes you wonder why they chose not to adopt either their traditional jumper for their women’s team (or the one worn by the men’s team today) and instead pick out this familiar look, inspired from a long-standing design from across the border…”

The Power’s twitter response to the Pies’ guernsey release also sparked some brilliant banter on the social media platform between several clubs.
