The 2019 Super Rugby season kicks off on Friday 15 February, and various teams have already started to reveal the new kits that they’ll be wearing for the forthcoming campaign.
Read on to check out all about the new Super Rugby 2019 season kits that have been revealed so far – we’ll update this page when each new set of jerseys are revealed.
As Adidas teams generally run on a two-year cycle, we’re expecting the Blues to stick with the jerseys that were revealed and worn last season.
And that’s no bad thing, as we really liked both shirts from last season, as you can find out in our review here.
The Bulls have brought back dark blue in a big way for 2019 with a ‘Bulls Armour’ jersey that will be used by both Super Rugby and Currie Cup.
Whatever your feelings on the new shirt, it’s certainly a great improvement over last year’s awful half and half home shirt.
The Brumbies have ditched Classic for Irish kit supplier O’Neills for the 2019 Super Rugby season, and have gone suitably classic with the new jerseys
The one downside of the new home and away designs is the intrusive sponsor that cuts across the classic three stripes on the front.
As with the other New Zealand Super Rugby sides, the Chiefs will be wearing their heavily Maori-inspired 2018 jerseys for another year this season.
Another go-around for the Crusaders 2018 jerseys in 2019, where they’ll look to make it two titles in one set of kits.
You know the deal with the New Zealand teams by now, right? You guessed it, another year of the Highlanders rather nice 2018 shirts for 2019.
There was an awful lot to like about the Hurricanes jerseys from 2018, and we’re very pleased to see them have another season for 2019.
The Jaguares have revealed a striking pair of new jerseys for the 2019 season, which break from the clean vibes we saw last year. And the year before. And the year before that.
They’re still lovely, however, and the new shirts also sport the new Jaguares logo for 2019.
The Lions have been the best hope for South Africa in Super Rugby in recent years, but for 2019 they’re mixing things up…
The new home and away shirts are a break from the born with a primarily white home shirt being paired with a black away.
The Rebels are the sole Australian team left with BLK in 2019, and for once there’s actually a bit of difference in their jerseys. A little bit anyway.
While not exactly reinventing the wheel, the dark blue home shirt has been cleaned up from last year, but the away shirt that will never die is still the same as ever.
The four-year deal that the Reds signed with Zoo Sport in 2017 was apparently only good for about 18 months, because the Queenslanders have signed up with Dynasty Sports for 2019.
Interestingly, the first move from the Kiwi company has been to ditch the scarlet of recent years and return the Reds to their maroon roots for the home shirt.
The Sharks are once again in Canterbury this season, and it’s a case of one old and one new. The home shirt is identical to last year bar the addition of some orange trim to match their sponsor.
There is a new away shirt, however – the comic book-style muscle design is a tribute to long-serving Sharks and Springbok prop Tendai ‘Beast’ Mtawarira
The Stormers brought their kits in-house for 2018 after the end of their decades-long association with Adidas, but it really didn’t go down well with fans.
For 2019, they’ve returned to a third party supplier in the shape of BLK, with new home and away shirts blending the modern and the traditional.
The Sunwolves have been in Canterbury since their arrival in Super Rugby, and so it continues for 2019.
The new shirts feature the ‘Wolves Win Worldwide’ motif on the front, and a rather fetching proper collar.
The away shirt is quite a change, however, with an interesting modern hooped white and blue design being chosen.
