This is the new jersey Ireland will wear against South Africa in November

Suck in that gut and tighten the belt.

THE SPRINGBOKS ARE bound for Dublin next month, so you know what that means!

No, not just a week of reminders of how poor South Africa have been over the past year with an unbearably tight and physical Test match to round it off. It’s one of those rare opportunities where Ireland get to break free of traditional green and wear something a little different on the international stage.

And boy, have Canterbury delivered something a little different… Brace yourself, sports jersey fans, it’s grey and it has green stripes!

Shocked? No, it’s grand isn’t it.

Maybe not €80 worth of ‘grand’ or — if you crave that tight-fitted Test match version to compress your ample guns — €120 worth of grand, but Joe Shcmidt’s men will be well covered come November.
