Leinster have won the last two Pro12 titles and in 2014/15 campaign have their eyes on a domestic 3-peat as well as regaining their winning ways in Europe. The Irish club unveiled their 2014/15 European jersey by Canterbury earlier this month and will debut the jersey on the pitch in a friendly with Ulster at the Tallaght Stadium on August 30.
The jersey is designed to give the team a modern look with the latest technology to give the ‘Boys in Blue’ the edge against their opposition.
The off-set hooped jersey has Leinster blue and black hoops at the top and bottom of the body of the jersey with alternating colors on each side of the jersey meeting in the middle to create a midline down the jersey. Four gold bands replace the blue hoops in the center of the jersey and represent the 4 strings of the gold harp of Leinster.
The blue Loop 21.3 collar features a gold band insert at the front of the neck. A white chevron epaulette from the Bank of Ireland logo is on each side of the collar while the back of the collar has the @leinsterrugby twitter handle.
The sleeves are solid blue with a blue cuff made of a nylon/spandex blend to provide a streamline fit around the biceps. The entire jersey is made from Canterbury’s high performance moisture management fabric which is lightweight and comfortable but very strong to stand up to tackles and other contact.
The Leinster team crest with 3-stars representing their previous European victories is over the left chest while the Canterbury logo in white is over the right chest. The Bank of Ireland sponsor logo is on the center of the jersey as well as on the back of the jersey under the collar, and the outside of each sleeve.
