The IRFU and Canterbury have revealed a brand new alternate jersey that Ireland will wear for the forthcoming November international series.
The new shirt is a dark grey base with a striking pattern on the sleeves – the same basic design as previously seen on the home shirt, but here the sleeve pattern is much more overt.
The sleeve pattern represents the four highest peaks in the provinces of Ulster, Munster, Leinster and Connacht, and is designed to contribute to Canterbury’s disruptive pattern technology, which is designed to make player movements harder to see for tacklers.
In addition, the new shirt also features 3D-injection moulded badges, Increased burst strength, amplified durability, flatlock seams and a power loop neckline to ensure the jersey can perform in the most demanding of conditions.
Ireland will wear their new alternate shirt for their opening game of the Guinness Series against South Africa.
