Ireland have launched a brand new home jersey that the men in green will wear from the start of the 2017 Autumn Internationals and throughout the 17/18 international season.

The new jersey, once again manufactured by Canterbury of New Zealand, aims to be a modern spin on the classic Ireland recipe, with the iconic green shirt accented with darker green sleeves, which themselves feature a subtle pattern sublimated into the colour.

The pattern is designed to act as a ‘visual distraction’ for tacklers, according to Canterbury, and is inspired by the highest peaks of Ireland’s four provinces – Connacht, Leinster, Munster and Ulster.

The new shirt also features a new ‘double-layered’ loop neckline, and has been designed to better cope with the rigours of top flight rugby with the addition of flatlock seams, triple needle stitching and increased sleeve mobility.

Ireland will wear their new home jersey for the first time when they take on South Africa on 11 November, and keep an eye out for a full review of the new shirt on Rugby Shirt Watch very soon.
