Spanish rugby is on the rise – while the Los Leones haven’t qualified for a Rugby World Cup since 1999, they are enjoying one of their most successful spells in recent memory, finishing third in the last two Rugby Europe Championship tournaments.
As befits a team with real ambitions of qualifying for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, Spain has also secured itself a pair of unique and striking new shirts that the team will wear on their quest to qualify for Japan.
The home shirt is the traditional red colour with an interesting digital pattern across the body, with blue and gold trim.
The alternate shirt is gold, with an identical digital pattern, but with no blue, just red trim on the sleeve cuffs and him, plus the collar and the non-symmetrical shoulder panel.
Both shirts also have a large sublimated Spain Rugby lion badge outlined across the main body of the jersey, sitting proudly on a rugby ball.
Joma are a Spanish brand who don’t do much rugby stuff, so it’s fitting and interesting to see them getting into the sport in the most appropriate way possible.
