2020-2021 International Rugby Kits

Recommended Posts

Looking at the other football code (and the better one in my opinion), there have been a few new kits revealed in the last few weeks, mainly with the Six Nations teams.

 

Scotland:

Ireland: They received a bit of flack for the way they promoted their new kit (or at least Canterbury did) with using female models with the new kits photoshopped onto their bodies. Their reasoning was something along the lines that "the models have a body image that is more appealing to females rather than an actual female rugby body". It started the #iamenough movement within the rugby social media community with female rugby players. Canterbury ended up apologizing and then a slew of club kits were released with both male ad female players with the clubs modeling their new kits. Anyways, here are the Irish kits:

England: They have a new supplier, Umbro. Umbro is back in rugby after a rather long break. They used to make rugby kits back in the 90's I believe with mainly English club kits.

Wow, Umbro is back, that is great news, just with wrong team :) I just can't get used to seeing Scotland kit with British Telecom logo, it's like Team USA would have Chinese add... :)

Wales has just announced they have signed on with Macron. They have been with Under Armour for the last few years but ended their deal 4 years early.

Wales with Macron

 

Macron now has a few national teams under their brand including Scotland, Italy and more recently Canada.

Looking forward to the Macron kits, they did Scotland really well this year.

 

Should just do this as rugby kits in general imo

 

Big fan of Ireland's. TBH I havent been impressed with LCS for France nor the new badge, but admittingly I loved the old one.

A bit out of the norm for traditional rugby countries but Nigeria released their new kit done by BLK. It's not too bad but I have to say that their training shirt (last picture) is far better than the any of the kits. I'd much rather see that on the field.

Italy released their new kits from Macron. They are simple and clean.

I have to appreciate the subtle red and green lighting they used for the photoshoot

The British & Irish Lions have released their new kit for their upcoming tour of South Africa. Usually they are a simple kit with a red shirt, white shorts and blue socks. These new ones by Canterbury keep that same tradition but the sleeves have a sublimated lion on them which is a step away from their traditional kits. Either way, they look pretty nice.

Macron has really taken over in rugby(soccer too).

 

Three nations( Scotland, Wales, Italy) have macron as a supplier with Canterbury(Ireland) le coq sportif(France) and umbro(England) having the rest. Also happens that the three macron teams are the ones that have zero chance of winning the six nations this year.

Wales usually has a chance, but the other two? Not so much.

But yet Scotland has the chance to ruin other's chances. Yes, I'm still bitter France lost because of an idiotic(but correctly called) red for a punch to the head.
