Headlined by a jersey like no other incorporating advanced technology and cutting-edge design, the range will be worn by the Ireland Rugby team in Japan as the team competes on the world stage. The home jersey arrives in a familiar and distinctly Irish Bosphorus green with subtle white trim and is complemented by classic white shorts and a hyper-realistic 3D silicon IRFU logo.
The new Alternate jersey comes in a striking anthracite and textured white. The neckline utilises an infinite loop V-collar, a continuous loop of elastic capable of withstanding even the toughest challenge, reducing breakage and enhancing player comfort.
Rugby is evolving; players are getting bigger and stronger, the ball is in play for longer and the expectations placed on kit performance has never been higher. The new Canterbury range has been put through a 2 year process of gruelling testing in the lab as well as on the field by elite and grassroots teams across Ireland, the UK and New Zealand.
Our role as official kit partner to the IRFU is to provide the team with a bespoke kit, designed to meet the needs of the team and the environment they will encounter in Japan while also providing supporters with a stylish, comfortable and distinct range of replica wear allowing them to turn the world green where ever they may go.
First and foremost the kit needs to stand up to the physical and environmental challenges that await us in Japan, but it also needs to look good on and off the pitch, for players and fans alike.
