Bristol Bears have revealed the new away jersey that the recently rebranded club will wear in their first season back in the Gallagher Premiership, as well as a new European shirt that they’ll wear for Challenge Cup action.
That’s perhaps not surprising – it was raised at the time that a dark blue home and a black away shirt wouldn’t provide nearly enough colour contrast in a league where multiple teams wear dark colours at home.
Instead then, we have this classic and clean white jersey, with black trim and black hoops on the sleeve – pleasingly with all Bristol kits this year, the sponsors are all colour-coordinated, which always helps the look.
That original black away kit hasn’t been thrown on the scrapheap, however – it’s been repurposed as the European jersey, and pairs a black shirt and shorts with hooped sleeves and socks.
