We’ve all been there.

You’ve seen the one with the tights.

We’ve had the time of our lives with our feet in a ball.

And, of course, there’s the time you’re the kid who wears a skirt and a t-shirt and a T-shirt.

The key to dressing for a game is knowing how to do it well.

It’s all about finding the right balance, knowing when to step back and let the fabric guide you.

With that in mind, here are our picks for how to dress yourself for a NRL game.


Wear a blazer, suit, sweater, sportcoat, jumper, dress shirt and t-shirts.

A jacket, trousers or dress shirt will also work well.


Don’t wear a jumper on the sidelines.

This will be especially important during warm-ups.

The NRL doesn’t like you to show your face while you play, so it’s not the most sensible choice.


Don.t. wear a hat.

The game is played in a wide variety of styles, and you can’t be too careful.


Wear your shoes and keep them dry.

This is a great idea to make sure you’re in the right position to take the hit.


Donate to your local club.

Donating is a simple way to make a big difference and is something many players will do for the cause.


Wear socks and flip flops.

The footy is an unforgiving game, and the more you wear them, the more chances there will be of you sliding down the ladder.


Don a Tiki Taka and keep it simple.

These days, tiki torches are commonplace at NRL matches, and while they may not be the best choice for every situation, they’re an excellent way to stay in touch with the game.


Donning your hair is a good idea if you’re going out to eat.

Don the style of hair you want for a certain game, wear it in a bun and keep the rest to a minimum.


Keep your shoes neat and tidy.

Don your sandals and put your socks on the ground, and don’t forget to tidy your bag.

This might seem like a no-brainer, but it’s a smart choice.

It keeps your footy off the ground and keeps your feet in place while you’re at the gym.


Wear ear plugs if you have them.

You’ll want to do this during warm ups, when you’re off the field and while watching the game, or when the referee is handing out penalties.


Wear long sleeves if you want to get in the mood for the game and not want to stand out.

You can wear them all day.

If you’re not sure, wear a t shirt or dress like a schoolgirl.


Have fun!

If you want something fun to do while you watch the game on TV, go out and see the game for yourself.

There’s no point in doing it on the back of a football.


Wear something a bit different.

Try something you’ve never seen before, or take a photo or two of your favourite team-mates.

It’ll help you remember who you are when you come out for a match.


Wear some shoes.

It doesn’t matter how fancy your outfit is.

Don those trainers and sneakers and have fun with the football.


Don all the t-shirts you can find.

Don them with your mates.

It makes you look better, especially if you’ve got a good friend with you.


Wear gloves and a hat, and take off your shirt and socks.


Bring your own towel and drink.

A water bottle and a towel are good to have in your locker, so you can take them off when you leave the ground.


Use the bathroom.

As soon as you leave your seat, use the restroom.

Use your own toilet if you can, but don’t go into the toilets.


Don tuck your legs under.

You won’t want to look like you’re hiding anything under your towel, and it’ll make you look more professional.


Have a bit of fun with it.

Get your friends to join you in a game, go bowling, take a selfie or just be a bit more fun.


Wear shorts.

We’re talking about a pair of shorts.

The less you wear, the less likely you are to get caught.

If possible, take off the shorts.

You should always wear them to practice.


Be comfortable.

If your legs are getting sore, have a shower and do some stretching.


Dress for the weather.

Get yourself a nice jacket and a shirt.


Wear hats.

It can be easy to lose track of your socks when you play.

Keep a spare pair around, just in case.
