Canterbury Have Unveiled Ireland's New Alternate Jersey And It's Not What We Expected

Ireland have a new alternate rugby kit, and Canterbury have made a bold move away from tradition.

The latest kit comes in a gunmetal grey, with green hoops around the sleeve to make it feel somewhat Irish, but it may be a popular choice with the fans because it is a break from the norm and completely different to anything we have seen before.

Canterbury have also released a new range of training gear...

The luminous green training top is something that we can get behind but the other training top is pretty stylish as well.

Ireland take on South Africa, Fiji and Argentina next month for the November internationals which will take place in the Aviva stadium.

We can expect to see the Irish team compete in their new kit on November 11th when they take on the Springboks. The jerseys between the side clash, so the home side are obliged to wear their alternative kit.

Ireland have climbed up to third in World Rugby's world rankings without kicking a ball after South Africa drew with 27-27 with Australia in South Africa last weekend.

The squad for the November internationals is expected to be announced in two weeks and there will be a couple noticeable absentees with Jamie Heaslip and Gary Ringrose set to miss the three test matches through injury.
