Leinster have released a new alternate home jersey for the 2016/17 Champions Cup with the Blues set to unveil their new kit against Castres in the opening round of the Champions Cup on the 15th of October.

Canterbury claim that the new kit boasts the latest technologies from Canterbury’s Innovation Lab, where new fabrics and compounds are tested to, and beyond, the limit of what is possible in a rugby jersey, as well as the kit being “the most technologically advanced jersey ever worn by the team.”
Proven technologies from Canterbury’s Rugby World Cup kit have been incorporated into the new jersey including, built in flat seams, Canterbury’s patented high stretch power loop collar for comfort and rip resistance as well as 3D body mapping technology to ensure that body temperature is evenly regulated in the hottest and coldest climates.
The new jersey proved to be quite popular with fans although not everyone was impressed with the frequency at which Leinster bring out new jerseys.
Finally this is the @leinsterrugby jersey I've been waiting for!
