Connacht Rugby BLK Green Lantern Superhero Shirt


Hot on the heels of the BLK Ospreys ‘Batjersey’ we reviewed yesterday comes the second entry into the Australian firm’s range of DC Superhero shirts. Connacht have been with BLK longer than any other Northern Hemisphere team, and it’s pretty fitting then, that the men in green get perhaps the most striking superhero shirt the company has produced.  Continue reading

Ospreys Rugby BLK Batman Superhero Jersey


One of the coolest rugby jersey trends of recent years has been the rise of the superhero shirt. Designs that combine the signature costume of a comic book superhero with the vibe of the team in question, all wrapped up in a beautiful rugby shirt-shaped package. The concept has been the preserve of Australian teams, but for the first time ever, BLK and the Ospreys are bringing the concept up north – and they’re doing it in the best possible way… Continue reading

Llanelli Scarlets Kooga 2015/16 Alternate Shirt


A few months ago, the Scarlets launched their 2015/16 home shirt from returning supplier Kooga, with all the usual fanfare you’d expect. We were told the change shirt would follow later, and were quite surprised when the Scarlets trotted out for their first away game of the season wearing a shirt that we’d never seen before (in fact it had quietly been launched for a preseason fixture against Jersey), and had had almost no promotion or fanfare on social media – pretty unusual in this day and age, so what gives?  Continue reading

Atlantique Stade Rochelais Canterbury 2015/16 European Shirt


La Rochelle are having another over-achieving season in the league, but many French teams, particularly those without the riches of Toulon or Clermont, opt to sacrifice their European campaign in order to ensure their survival in the money-spinning Top 14. You couldn’t blame Stade Rochelais for doing this, but it seems like they might be taking their Challenge Cup campaign seriously this year – after all, they’ve gone to the bother of producing a bespoke Euro shirt!  Continue reading

Gloucester Rugby XBlades 2015/16 European Shirt


Gloucester enjoyed a thoroughly satisfactory European season in 2014/15. They lifted the Challenge Cup trophy back in May, and while they might prefer not to, having lost the playoff to earn a place in the Champions Cup this season, they’ll be back defending their title this year wearing a brand new European jersey from new supplier XBlades.  Continue reading

ASM Clermont Auvergne Under Armour 2015/17 European Shirt


Beaten finalists last season, Clermont Auvergne will go into the second Rugby Champions Cup with plans to go one better this season. Whether they can win the whole thing or not, however, there’s little doubt the men from Clermont-Ferrand will be a force in the tournament, and we’ll be seeing a whole lot of their new Under Armour European shirt before it’s done… Continue reading

Northampton Saints Burrda 2015/16 European Shirt


Northampton Saints have come a long, long way since the dark day of their relegation in 2008. The club has bounced back in a seriously impressive way since, establishing themselves as one of the best teams in Europe, winning the Premiership, the Challenge Cup and making it to a Heineken Cup final in 2010. Despite all this though, for a team with so much talent and depth, the big Euro prize still eludes them – they’ll be looking to change all that this season wearing their brand new European shirt from Burrda.
