Warriors CEO Cameron George fired back at critics of the jersey back when it was released.
We even put a f*****g jumper up (online) and everyone in Australia and New Zealand made fun of us and takes the piss out of us, George said as part of the All In documentary the club ran during the off-season.

The jersey was initially set to be worn during their Wellington clash with the Cowboys before coronavirus saw the Warriors forced to remain in Australia.
The shirt uses traditional Wellington colours of yellow and black with inspiration from the Kiwi bush shirt.
The reactions were mixed at the time with one fan comparing it to Humphrey B. Bear while another exclaimed: F***, thats where my picnic rug went.
