Ahead of next month’s Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland, Canterbury has revealed the jersey that England will wear for the tournament – which is also available as a replica jersey for the first time ever.
The on-field jersey is the same basic design as the shirt England women wore in the Six Nations this year – complete with the same 3D injection moulded red rose and ‘deconstructed’ collar as the men’s shirt. Where it differs is the presence of the WRWC2017 logo on the right side of the chest, the World Cup winner’s patch on the right sleeve, and a St George’s Cross on the left sleeve.
The replica version is a first for England, and follows the Ireland shirt we reported on earlier this week in offering a limited edition design with a more relaxed fit and design.
The Vapodri replica features all the appointments of the on-field version, including the WRWC2017 logo and injection-moulded rose, but with a deep V-neck collar style.
“This is a game that is played by over two million women and girls all over the world, to have the opportunity to represent our nation is a privilege,” said England captain Sarah Hunter about the new jersey. “We are honoured to be able to pull on the red rose and it’s great that fans can now join us in doing so with a very special limited edition version of our World Cup jersey.”
The limited edition England WRWC2017 jersey will launch on 17 July from Canterbury.com and EnglandRugbyStore.com, and is available for preorder now.
