Springbok Jersey: Old school is back

Wed, 31 May 2017 06:00

The Springbok jersey for the 2017 international season has been revealed and one of the main features is the return of the 'old school' collar. Enjoy the beauty of the Green and Gold!

The launch of the iconic jersey is the culmination of several months of hard work by scientists at the ASICS Institute of Sport Science in Kobe, Japan, in collaboration with SA Rugby and the Springboks.

The Springboks will wear the new-look jersey for the first time during the Castle Lager Incoming Series against France next month and supporters will be able to get their hands on the jersey from 1 June.

The jersey represents a traditional look and feel, with a modern touch. The green chest and back area has a scattering of mini springboks spread across the surface for added detail and the gold collar adds a touch of class to round off a classic rugby jersey.

The supporters jersey will be at selected sport retail stores from 1 June 2017 at a RRP of R750.
