Canterbury recognises the need to develop the toughest jersey to stand up to the rigours of Origin football.


The new look Queensland 2014 jersey has been designed by Canterbury as not only the toughest jersey ever made, but also incorporates the players feedback. Features such as the silicone grip to enhance ball handling in all weather conditions, lighter weight construction and an innovative new fabric with improved wicking capabilities have all been included.


The all maroon new jersey is a favourite with the players and the incorporation of the traditional V is synonymous with Rugby League and shows the strength and unification of the Queensland side.
