On the back of the recently launched home jersey, Ireland have launched their alternate jersey to be used at the 2015 World Cup.
Using the same jersey template as the new home jersey, the new alternate jersey for Ireland is coloured black with additional green panels on the sleeves and shoulders. The same chevron “ball-dampening’ pattern is used on the chest while the special 3D injection-moulded IRFU crest is used.
Traditionally a white jersey has been used by the Irish but this time round black colours the primary front and back panels. Again the 360° Loop neckline collar is used while the Rugby World Cup and Canterbury logos have been stitched on to the jersey.
A large rectangular block will surround the numbers which are expected to be coloured white on the back of the jersey.
