With the Rugby World Cup underway, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 rugby kit designs from the Rugby World Cup 2019.
Here’s the list of the best rugby kit designs from the 2019 World Cup in no necessary order:
1. Australia National Rugby Union Team: Wallabies
The Wallabies alternate rugby jersey has become a popular indigenous Australian jersey, which was designed by Dennis Golding. The kit is predominantly green, with a gold indigenous design on the sleeves, front and back, indigenous Wallaby on the front with a waterhole – which is believed to represent ‘one team’ on the front and centre.
2. New Zealand National Rugby Union Team: All Blacks
The All Blacks showed off an amazing textured design. It appears to be a standard black jersey however close up the shirt has embossed ferns imprinted over it to display New Zealand’s Maori culture. The kit was designed by Yohji Yamamoto.
3. Canada National Rugby Union Team: Canucks
Canada recently signed a deal with Canterbury last season, along with a new and modern crest design they have paired them well to create a classy home shirt. The home rugby jersey is red with maple leaf grippers on the front chest with white ascents, and the black version (our favourite) looks clean.
4. Japan National Rugby Union Team: Brave Blossoms
The alternate blue Japan National Rugby jersey is our favourite. The blue jerey features royal blue and navy with gold ascents and traditional Japanese watermark design in respect to their heritage. Japan is the best rugby team in Asia.
5. Argentina National Rugby Union Team: Pumas
The Argentina National Rugby Team 2019 kits have a very traditional look in the teams famous sky blue and white horizontal stripes. This is a huge difference to their past jerseys as they have had vertical stripes ever since 1911.
