Ireland have launched a new alternate jersey which will be worn for the first time in their November Test series opener against South Africa at the Aviva Stadium on November 10.
Developed in consultation with Irish International players and management, the striking black and green alternate jersey marks a new departure from the traditional white and green alternate strip and will be the first non-white alternate jersey to be worn by the Irish Rugby team in a competitive match.
"With South Africa coming to town the launch of a new Ireland alternate jersey gives us an opportunity to bring some variety to how we present the Irish rugby brand," said IRFU Commercial & Marketing Director Padraig Power.
"We think the new green and black jersey looks fantastic. The style is contemporary and innovative and the team really love the look. Our feedback from supporters has been very positive and we expect it to look really strong on the pitch. We think our supporters will be delighted with it and they will wear it with pride."
