Ahead of the kick off of the 2017/18 Guinness Pro12 season, last season’s beaten finalists, Munster, have revealed their home shirt.
The striking new design is produced by long-term supplier, adidas, and is a definite break from the Munster tradition. Instead of the usual blue and white contrast colours, here the classic scarlet shirt is accented with a dark red, that also continues onto the shorts and socks.
In addition to the new colour, the front and back of the jersey also has a striking motif at the bottom of the jersey, which is designed to emulate the horns of a stag, which is of course the symbol of Munster rugby. In addition, all the logos on the jersey are rendered in an interesting copper colour.
The final flourish on the jersey can be found on the sleeves of the shirt, where Munster’s Latin motto ‘Forti et Fideli nihil difficile‘ – ‘To the brave and faithful, nothing is impossible’ – is adorned on each cuff in copper.
Munster will wear their new home shirt in Pro12 games, while they will retain last season’s blue and red European shirt for matches in the Champions Cup.
