The Southern Kings – or the Isuzu Southern Kings as they have recently rechristened themselves – have revealed their brand new home and away shirts, which they’ll wear for the 2018/19 Guinness Pro14 season.
The new jerseys are produced by TK Sports – a new name to us, and to the pro rugby world. TK Sports claims to be South Africa’s fastest growing sportswear brand, but have focused primarily on hockey, cricket and golf.
The new shirts have the same template, with plain black home and red away jerseys augmented with a geometric pattern on the shoulders and stomach, plus red and yellow piping around the shoulders and sleeves, and a curious stub collar. And yes, they do rather look like rejected Dragons jerseys.
