NEWS: France Rugby reveal RWC2019 home shirt, new crest

The FFR has revealed the brand new France home shirt that Les Bleus will wear at Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan, and also a brand new crest that will debut in the tournament.

The shirt is as clean and classic as could be with a classic blue jersey accented with a simple white stub collar and a large contrasting textured blue section that runs across the shoulders and chest.

The new crest, however, is a significant departure – ditching the traditional golden cockerel in favour of a stylised red one, and ditching any word mark on the jersey entirely.

The old logo had been used with and without a shield for decades, but this new one is actually a throw back to the cockerel used on some of the earliest France rugby jerseys.
