Munster Rugby have been busy unveiling their new threads for next season, with the alternate and training strip offerings coming in black and orange, respectively. Now, the revamped home kit has been released, to some very mixed opinion.
Following a ‘Super Rugby style’ of kit, Munster have been busy adding some flashy patterns and prints to their famous colours and for the most part, fan sentiment has been positive.
However, like everything in this world, you simply cannot please everyone. Having experimented with some dark blue in recent seasons, the Limerick-based club has returned to a fully red jersey, including shorts and it is the latter change that has gotten some fans a little hot and bothered.
Red shorts 🙈🙈🙈

For others, the new all-red look with the futuristic print is simply too much.
Lads what have Munster done to their jerseys 😫😭

It’s not all bad news, however, as some fans are mightily impressed with the new threads

Whether you love it or hate it, Munster have embraced their new style and for the season ahead at least, it will be worn with pride.
If nothing else, fans on both sides of the fence might agree that this new style direction is better than such previous offerings that included a print of a stag. Or not.
