The Definitive Ranking Of The Top 11 Fitzgibbon/Sigerson Jerseys For 2018

The Definitive Ranking Of The Top 11 Fitzgibbon/Sigerson Jerseys For 2018

The Electric Ireland Sigerson, Fitzgibbon and Higher Education Championships are genuinely great. By their very nature, they level the Inter-county playing field by pitting talented players from weaker counties together with the bigger names and provide an opportunity for some silverware.

The 2018 Electric Ireland Fitzgibbon and Sigerson Cup are currently underway. As well as the obvious ability on display, so are each side's jerseys. The kits this year are of a particularly high standard. After much deliberation, here are our definitive ranking of the top 11.

#11 - University of Limerick 

The attempt to combine three different main colours is commendable and the sponsor logo works. Ten was the most contentious pick in the office, hence why we compromised and went with 11.

#10 - Waterford Institute of Technology

Superb collar. Stripes are lovely. Nice black cameo in the centre. It just works.

#9 - Mary I 

Blue, white and red and a forward-thinking design of three stripes at two different points of the jersey and in two different colours. The ranking reflects the design's boldness.

#8 - Dublin Institute of Technology

An outstanding overall kit even if the mirage of colours is a tad distracting.

#7 - UCD 

The light/dark blue tinged with yellow numbers and strips combines for a really sleek top.

#6 - NUIG

A Galway team belongs in Maroon and the placement of white is perfect on top of that. Unlucky not to penetrate the top five.

#5 - IT Carlow

The bravest of all colour choices with a luminous green. The red tinge only enhances the jersey.

#4 - UCC 

A staple of the third-level jerseys every year. Excellent fit, red/black combo and a great collar. That's not to mention the ominous skull and crossbones.

#3 - Trinity

The red/black combo that extends from jersey, to shorts and socks is a superb overall package. To many designs don't take into consideration the entire kit. Let this placing be a message to next years hopefuls, it's about the whole cake, not just a slice.

#2 - DCU

Gorgeous effort. Props for the number-collar-stripes combination.

#1 - Dundalk IT

Home or away, this is a spectacular shirt. The retro design is kept ultra-simple and in direct contract with the anti-collar agenda being peddled by today's modernists. A deserving winner.

The Electric Ireland Sigerson, Fitzgibbon and Higher Education Championships. Taking rivalries to the next level. #FirstClassRivals
