We have been told that Les Blues have used two famous World Cup wins over the All Blacks as inspiration behind the new design with the jersey featuring two tones of blue – the top half being the shade worn in the 43-31 semi-final win over the All Blacks in 1999 and the bottom half the same shade of blue worn in the 20-18 quarter-final win in Cardiff 2007. Both the home and away kits, the away being an all-white strip, feature the motif ‘France’ on the inside of the shirts and a three colour trim. The shorts are ‘midnight blue’ while the socks are also two-toned in the same shades of blue as the jersey. These shirts are expected into stock on the 1 August so get your order in now, just follow this link to the France Shirts page.
