What do you think of Connacht's new away and European kits?

They’re different anyway.

CONNACHT LAUNCHED THEIR new away and European kits by taking the unusual step of wearing both of them in a pre-season friendly with Pat Lam’s Bristol at the Sportsground.

The new away kit — in partnership with BLK — is described by the province as “a mix of cyan and white with a navy finish” and features the Connacht eagle across the abdomen.

Here it was in action during the first half:

The European kit features “ tonal diagonal lines blending into a powerful lime green” and is “an energetic mix of blue and lime green”.
