The Adidas sponsored All Blacks wore their 2011 and Rugby World Cup new strip for the Tri-Nations clash in Wellington against South Africa, which they comfortably won by 40-7.
The new shirt did not hold many surprises for us as we knew it would be black, though the white collar was not expected. We also knew from the guys trying to rip them and saying how tight they were that they would be figure hugging. They most certainly are a step on from the previous versions and look as if they will allow players to do away with compression kit underneath, they certainly do make the guys look slim!

The 2011 version of the All Blacks shirt is strikingly black and this is extenuated with the white collar which harks back to 1987. We are not sure how the versions open to public sale will be as the figure hugging look does not suit everyone. We feel sure that the shirts will fly off the shelves so to be sure you do not miss out and to place your order. Just go to: the New Zealand Shirts page.
