The New Irish Rugby World Cup Jersey Has Been Released

We're less than a month away from Ireland's first World Cup warmup at the Aviva Stadium against Italy. It wouldn't be a World Cup without an official World Cup jersey launch, and this morning, the Canterbury shirt Ireland will be wearing in Japan has been released.

It's green. The alternative kit is gray.

Photos of the jersey had leaked online on British online retailers this week. The official jersey press release describes the decision-making behind the shirt:

The home jersey arrives in a familiar and distinctly Irish Bosphorus green with subtle white trim and is complemented by classic white shorts and a hyper realistic 3D silicon IRFU logo. The new Alternate jersey comes in a striking anthracite and textured white. The jerseys feature Ogham script for ‘Aontacht‘ or ‘Unity’, representing the unique coming together of the four proud provinces of Ireland. The neckline utilises an infinite loop V-collar, a continuous loop of elastic capable of withstanding even the toughest challenge, reducing breakage and enhancing player comfort.

 

What do you make of it? Is this the kit that will get Ireland out of the World Cup semifinals?
