The RFU has revealed the brand new home and away jerseys that England will be wearing at Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan later this year.
The jerseys, which are once again made by long-term kit supplier Canterbury of New Zealand, broadly keep things quite clean and classic, but with a few eye-catching modern twists.
The home shirt is the classic white design, with small red pointed inserts on the front of the shirt, and red multi-lined pattern on the sleeve cuffs. This pattern continues round the back of the shirt, and on one half of the new slightly V-d collar.
The change shirt is primarily red, with a red collar, and midnight blue shoulders, the body of the shirt also has an interesting marled effect (also seen on England’s new training kit) and is paired with midnight blue shorts.
Both shirts are made with Canterbury’s new Vapodri+ material, which is designed to cope with the potentially unpredictable weather at Japan 2019.
“It is important to have a kit that can help when conditions change and importantly comfortable for the players when out on the pitch,” said England head coach Eddie Jones. “Our guys take pride in pulling on the iconic white jersey and we look forward to continuing the tradition in Japan.”
The new England RWC2019 jerseys will be available from 9am on Friday 5 July, both online, at the RFU store at Twickenham, and the Canterbury Clubhouse in London. Check out all the other new Rugby World Cup 2019 jerseys in our full round up here.
