2015 Rugby World Cup

Recommended Posts

It's a few months away and we already have teams releasing their kit. I was at United Cycle here in Edmonton yesterday and I saw the new Canada shirt for the tournament. I didn't take a picture but I can tell you it is all red with a white collar. The Rugby Canda logo is on the left, the RWC logo on the right and the UNder Armour logo in the center. One thing that I really like on it is the rubber kind of material that seems to be all the rage and on Canada's it is designed as small maple leaves going across the front of the jersey. On the sleeves, the same small maple leaves are arranged in a way to create a larger maple leaf on each arm. I personally like the jersey and I am really hoping they pair it with white shorts and red socks. I'm not a big fan of black being included in Canada's kits lately and I'm really hoping that the alternate jersey is the same simple design.

Anyways, enough of Canada. Other teams have released their jerseys already. Here are some:

I'm liking that USA home shirt. US Soccer should follow a similar design for the next aways.

The Australia and South Africa jerseys look to be the replicas. I believe there are other extras on the game day jerseys, similar to what was described for Canada.

I'm really digging the South Africa sets. It's really hard to beat that particular green and gold together.

I fully expect the All-Blacks to look just about perfect as always. In my mind, there's no better looking team in all of Rugby than them. England's had a few kits that've come close, but New Zealand always takes the cake for me.

I feel like USA's are just okay, I'm not particularly thrilled by them. I do like the general idea, though. Maybe if they simplified it to just red thin stripes on the navy rather than red-white-red-white-red, it'd look a little cleaner and better. Even red-white would look good.

These are the real ones:

These are pretty nice, but I liked the old set better.

That's easily the worst Wallabies jersey of all time.

The single sleeve design is an early 2000s cricket inspired eyesore.

Have the Springboks been officially removed from the SA shirts?

Nah, they stick it on the sleeve for RWC jersey's.

Definitely i don't like the ASICS work, worst Wallabies and Springbok uniform in years. The A logo is so invasive! bigger than de country shield and c-mon the SA Rugby logo have to be in chest, i don't know, may be top of the RWC patch

The Fiji jersey is pretty nice.

With ASICS being the jersey supplier for the Wallabies now, we will not see the classic look that Canterbury was known for. However, ASICS provided the Wallabies with a good looking jersey for this past year:

There is NOTHING wrong with this. Can't stand the one they will be wearing for the World Cup. Looks like a bloody tennis shirt.

As long as those 'years' don't extend back to 2007. These 'man bra' things were horrendous.

I like and hate the team canada jerseys at the same time.

Also a missing feature from the posted wallabies jersey, the wallabies logo will be on the sleeve, same as the springbok.

It's interesting that although NZ and England are made by different manufacturers, they have a very similar subtle chevron shape design in the fabric
