Every new Guinness Pro14 Rugby kit for 2018/19 so far

inpho_01355490.jpg

Last season saw the first running of the newly expanded Guinness Pro14, and the competition has returned in unaltered format for 2018/19. Below you’ll find every new Guinness Pro14 jersey for the new season for all the teams from Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Italy and South Africa. 

Benetton Rugby

No news on the Italian team’s new jerseys for 2018/19 yet, though once again the team will be supplied by fellow Italians Errea, and the classic white and green hoops are again expected to feature prominently.

Cardiff Blues

The Blues have become the latest in a rapidly growing band of Pro14 clubs who have switched to Macron this season, ending their long association with Canterbury.

The first Macron shirts owed a fair debt to CCC however, with both home and away strongly referencing recent Cardiff Blues jersey designs.

Cheetahs

The Cheetahs have launched a brand new kit that they’ll be wearing for the Pro14 season (and different kit for their Currie Cup campaign, interestingly).

The new Canterbury kits ditch the plain orange look of the last few seasons for a rather stunning white and orange hooped design with black trim.

Connacht

The Galway team are one of a very few pro teams still wearing the jerseys of embattled Australian kit maker BLK, but their new home shirt is at least striking.

The dark green shirt is accented with a range of fluorescent green pinstripes that’s supposed to reflect the club’s commitment to grass roots rugby.

Dragons

The Dragons have continued their on and off-field revolution by signing up with ambitious UK company VX3.

The new kits feature an interesting dragon scale motif around the bottom of the design and the sleeve cuffs, while the change jersey is blue and white as usual.

Edinburgh Rugby

Scotland’s capital team have undertaken a dramatic overhaul of their branding this offseason, which includes a new club crest and colours.

The new jerseys ditch the black and red that they’ve used recently in favour of blue, orange and white, in very modern style.

Glasgow Warriors

Unlike their rivals down the M8, there’s been no dramatic changes to branding or colour for the Warriors this season, so the standard mix of black and blue is expected.

Macron will once again be supplying the jerseys, but there’s no news as yet about their release date.

Leinster

One of the biggest sponsorship stories of the last 18 months has been Leinster’s defection to Leinster after a long association with Canterbury.

The new jerseys are strikingly modern, with a patterned blue home shirt and an interesting olive drab away.

Munster

No new home jersey for the Munstermen this season, as they stick with the all-red design Adidas produced for them in 2017/18.

They are sporting a striking new European home shirt that marks the 10th anniversary of Thomond Park’s redevelopment, and a striking ‘copper ore’ blue away shirt.

Ospreys

The Ospreys are once again wearing Canterbury gear for 2018/19, with the home shirt  launched on the 10 August and the away being revealed shirt two weeks later on the 23 August.

The home shirt is a break from the norm, with white sleeves and collar, and a irregular white pinstripes across the front, with a streak of electric blue up the shoulders and around the collar.

Scarlets

Last season’s Pro14 finalists are wearing Macron again this season, but the bulk of the conversation about their new home shirt has been about the vast number of sponsors the new kit is sporting.

The new away shirt will launch later this month, and is expected to feature blue and white.

 Southern Kings

No news on what the new kits for the Port Elizabeth-based side yet, but once again Canterbury are expected to provide the gear.

Black has usually been the primary colour for the Kings kits, but in their short history they’ve struggled to nail down a visual identity, so there’s plenty of potential for creativity.

Ulster

No news on the new kits from the Northern Irish province, but once again Kukri will be providing the design and manufacture.

Ulster tend to keep things very traditional for the home shirt, but they usually do something a little bit more exciting with the away.

Zebre

Like their Italian rivals Treviso, Zebre are expected to be wearing Errea jerseys again this season, but there’s no word on their design or release date yet.

If the past has told us anything, the home shirt will be white with some kind of zebra motif, while the away shirt could be anything!
