Playing kit - a few things.I was focusing more on match-day attire, but I’m interested to hear your opinions about both.
What are some of the things that really just get under your skin when it comes to your favorite rugby-wears?
I’d agree on all of this and I’m a totally different size/shape to Don’t Skip Leg Day (a 5’8 hooker/flanker).Playing kit - a few things.
First the massive difference in sizes between manufacturers. My club changed kit manufactur every other year to get the best deals but I’d end up being a large, then a medium then an x-large etc when I didn’t change size really at all. Shorts were the same, I’ve had the same sizes jeans for about 15 years but rugby shorts are constantly different.
Second thing was the fit of the kits, the super tight kits of later years didn’t take into account my ‘guns’ but then to be fair we had so many different physiques you can’t please all.
Overall the kits we had used to wear and wash well. Very rarely ever saw shirt rip.
Shorts I often found too short or too long. But I am/was a lock and only 6’ 3 so be average fit.
