What Do You Make Of The New Irish Rugby Alternate Jersey?

Balls Team
By Balls Team Updated

Canterbury have released the new Irish alternate kit for the 2016/17 season.

The kit is certainly different from previous years. It's purple, somewhat akin to the ones worn by England during the 2012/13 season - though a touch darker.

Last year's Rugby World Cup alternate jersey was green and black, while the 2014 one was white.

Canterbury say it is influenced by the heritage of Irish rugby.

The new alternate kit focuses on the heritage surrounding Irish rugby. Taking inspiration from Lansdowne Road, the oldest rugby ground in the world and the historical home of the IRFU, 4 gold bar tacks link to the embroidery on the original Lansdowne Caps.

It's likely to be worn during the upcoming November internationals, perhaps against Australia due to the lighter colour of their kit.
