Considered to be the strongest rugby nation on continental Europe, France is always competitive with the traditional powers of world rugby. Now Les Bleus have new home and away kits for their run up to the 2011 Rugby World Cup.
Launched last week by the Fédération Française de Rugby and Nike, the new kits are the first new France kits since 2007. The new navy blue France Nike home kit was used during Saturday’s 20-13 victory over South Africa in Toulouse. Expect to see more of them when Le XV de France hosts Samoa on November 21st at the Stade de France and New Zealand on November 29th in Marseille.
