Ireland Rugby 2014/15 Canterbury Home and Away Kits
Canterbury and the IRFU have unveiled the 2014/15 Ireland home and alternate playing kits which will be worn for the first time during the Guinness Series when Ireland take on South Africa, Georgia and Australia.
Both will be available for purchase at World Rugby Shop, Lovell Rugby, Canterbury’s online store and Kitbag Rugby.
Both the new home and alternate shirts feature a new collar, specifically designed with both the Irish players and fans in mind. Canterbury’s famous loop neckline has a unique and stylish collar attached to reflect traditional jerseys from yesteryear.
The new authentic ‘bosphorus’ green of the home jersey has been welcomed by IRFU management and players and is likely to be a big hit with fans. The embroidered crest is applied boldly to the chest, surrounded by a ball-deadening grip.
The alternate Ireland kit, draws its inspiration from the first international test jersey worn in 1875, when Ireland played England at The Oval wearing a white jersey with green hoops. Ireland will line up in the new alternate kit when they face South Africa in November.
Canterbury’s ‘Together for Ireland’ campaign captures the unified spirit of players and fans from the four provinces of Ireland, coming together to represent and support their country with pride. This has been brought together in a supporting video which can be viewed below.
