New Ireland Rugby Union Kit Released

Ahead of Saturday’s meeting with the All-Blacks in Chicago, Ireland unveiled their new home and alternate kits.


Ireland will wear their green home kit for this match while New Zealand wear their traditional black.

The reigning world champions are clear favourites to win. The two nations meet again at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin later this month. The last time the two sides met in November 2013, Aaron Cruden gave the All-Blacks a 24-22 win with a last minute conversion.


This is the Irish rugby home shirt:

There was no way it was going to be anything other than green and white.

Canterbury kept the design simple for 2016/17. A white Henley-style collar features alongside orange piping, completing the representation of the colours of the Irish flag. Across the upper back, there is another line of orange piping.

Canterbury opted for a plum colourway on the alternate shirt using the same template as the home shirt.

The kits are made from the sportswear manufacturer’s patented VaporDri fabric. This allows the players to regulate the players body temperature no matter the conditions while wicking sweat to keep the shirt light.

The shirt is available in Test (player issue), Pro (replica) and Classic (cotton) designs.
