Ireland Have A New Alternate Jersey And It’s Likely To Split Opinion

Friday 6th October, let it be known as the day of the alternate kits. Already we have seen England release their brand new alternate kit which is ‘designed to mask player movement.’ 

Eddie Jones’ side will wear the grey and red shirt against Argentina in the first of their November internationals at Twickenham. You can see their new jersey here.

For Ireland, well they don’t want all the spotlight to be on their old enemy, they have also released their new alternate kit today and they have also gone for a grey shirt but with one major difference which is likely to cause some split opinion – green hoops on the sleeves.

On initial viewing, the green hoops stand out quite a bit but one thing is for certain, the white Irish crest looks great.

And to be fair, the jersey looks quite nice when you see it modelled on the Leinster trio of Robbie Henshaw, Luke McGrath and Josh van der Flier.

We will likely see the new jersey in the flesh when Ireland take on South Africa, Argentina and Fiji during the November Internationals.

And here is the women’s kit.

What do you make of Ireland’s new kit? Let us know in the comments.
