New Wales rugby jersey is an understated treasure

The more we look at this, the more we like.

Over the past number of weeks, rugby fans have been offered glimpses of the jerseys their teams will wear in the November internationals, Six Nations and summer tours.

Ireland have already produced a cracker, with Canterbury. The away jersey is decent but the home kit is one of our best in years:

The England kits, home an alternative, are also designed by Canterbury and not too much of a departure from the Irish offering.

With the November Tests fast approaching, Wales have taken the opportunity - between Sean O'Brien and Warren Gatland ripostes - to launch their 2017/18 home kit.

Under Armour are the kit manufacturer and there is a new sponsor - Izuzu - but that's not the only change.

The jersey is predominantly red with crests, sponsor and designers' logo the only splashes of colour. Quite unusually for rugby, UA have opted to go with a rounded collar. For us, this jersey gets better the more you see of it.

You can check out the heap of kit-talk and design details here but, for rugby [and fashion] fans, the most important piece of info is that the new gear will be available to purchase from next Tuesday, October 24. The jersey alone will cost Welsh supporters £65 [adults] with the full quit available for £90.

If that does not sate your appetite, enjoy this O.T.T jersey promo.

Woven by Wales indeed.
