It’s the time of year we have all been waiting for - the release of Rugby World Cup kits! Whilst the tournament itself is still some 4 months away, Canterbury are the first to break cover, launching the training and leisurewear ranges of both England and Ireland.
The famous CCC brand, who are synonymous with rugby, have stuck to tried and tested colours - red, white and blue for England, green and white for Ireland - whilst also introducing ground breaking innovation throughout the collection.
The likes of Chris Robshaw, James Haskell and Sam Burgess will be pulling on this range of technical products during their World Cup training camp, after being named in the 50 man squad which was announced earlier this week.
Canterbury did make one slight blooper, forgetting to change their model out of his Ireland shorts when doing the England photo shoot! Oops
We've not seen anything like it since this Adidas Lions/All Blacks hybrid from the 2005 tour!
Show your support and commit to the rose in the Canterbury England Rugby Training and Leisurewear collection.
For Ireland, the templates are the same; training shirt, hybrid gym short and tee, and a polyester singlet. They plays Wales (twice), England and Scotland in the build up to the tournament, and this kit will feature in gym sessions, pre-match warm-ups and player and staff press conferences.
