Rugby Shirt Of The Year 2016

Nothing says 'our creative reserves have evaporated, please let us go on holiday' like a website churning out yet another boring, predictable end-of-year list feature does it? But we at Rugby Shirt Watch would never pretend we're above that sort of lazy journalism – far from it. No, we're here to goddamn embrace the glory of … Continue reading Rugby Shirt Of The Year 2016

Benetton Rugby Treviso 2016/17 Kappa European Shirt

Italian rugby and European competition are traditionally not the most comfortable bedfellows, and whether it's the Champions or Challenge Cups, the results for the Italian sides are generally depressing. One thing that can add a silver lining to yet another chastening Challenge campaign however is the presence of a rather awesome European jersey – and that's exactly what we … Continue reading Benetton Rugby Treviso 2016/17 Kappa European Shirt

Benetton Rugby Treviso 2016/17 Kappa Home Shirt

FC Grenoble Rugby 2016/17 Home, Away & European Shirts

Grenoble are one of those teams that, if you're not a big follower of the Top 14, it's rather easy to forget that they even exist. They're never bad enough to suffer the ignominy of relegation, but at the same time they're never quite good enough to trouble the play-offs either - in fact, since they … Continue reading FC Grenoble Rugby 2016/17 Home, Away & European Shirts

Montpellier Hérault Rugby 2016/17 Kappa European Shirt

This season has been something of a bounce-back for Montpellier, in more ways than one. They've signed Fijian superstar Nemani Nadolo, they're going well in the Top 14, and most importantly of all, their new tie-up with Kappa resulted in the club's first ever Gold Award for an utterly stunning home shirt. The club are also … Continue reading Montpellier Hérault Rugby 2016/17 Kappa European Shirt
