Ahead of the new Super Rugby season, the Emirates Lions have revealed brand new home and away jerseys from Canterbury that the franchise will wear in 2018. The new jerseys are a blend of the classic and the traditional, with striking white and red hoops on the front of the design, and a modern graphic on the back. The graphic itself returns to the theme of the Johannesburg skyline that the Lions wore across the front of their designs in 2016.
The away shirt is a simple palette swap of the home shirt, with the front being a white shirt with red stripes, and the back a white skyline against a red background. “We are very proud to be associated with the City of Johannesburg and we know they have our ‘backs’ so to speak,” said Edgar Rathbone, Managing Director of EPS Management at the shirt’s launch.
