THE IRFU AND Canterbury have revealed the new Ireland home and alternate playing kits, which will be worn for the first time during the November Test series against South Africa, Georgia and Australia.

The kits feature new collars that “reflect traditional jerseys from yesteryear,” according to Canterbury.

After a darker share last time around, the New Zealand manufacturer has opted for what they term a “bosphorus” green for the home jersey.

Louis Magee, President IRFU, said:

“The IRFU are delighted to welcome Canterbury back into the Irish rugby family.  Canterbury has a long and successful relationship with Irish rugby at all levels of the game and we look forward to working once again with one of the leading kit suppliers in world rugby.”
