    good riddance, the current jersey is vile, hopefully they'll go back to the older colour as well.

    Yeah I used to love the purple and yellow polka dot Irish shirts.

    Thank god for that - I doubt many people are fans of the generic Canterbury kits being used by nigh-on everyone. And as already said, maybe they'll start using a shade of green that is assosciated with Ireland also.

    That said though, let's hope Puma don't make Ireland wear anything as ugly compared to what they did to the Quins RL kit;

    well they haven't done a bad job with the Bath jerseys, so here's hoping we get something similar.

    More than likely to be like Samoa's shirt.

    My preference would be for a deal with Addidas and a jersey based on this

    but anything is better than what we have now!

    Why was the shade of green changed? Surely the IRFU had control over aspects of the kit of that importance. Couldn't ever see the shade of Wales' scarlet red changed. Hope to see the original Irish green back next year then :good:

    The IRFU seem quite happy to whore themselves to the highest bidder.

    Puma has definitely improved in the last few seasons.

    Bath are the Puma posters boys but back in 2006 their Puma jersies were more BARF than Bath to be honest. Absolutely hideous and schoolboy.

    These days, they look awesome. I think the IRFU are onto a good thing here!
     
  15. Isn't the present jersey the more traditional shade of green? I'll see if I can dig up a couple of pictures. Over time the colour of the jersey gradually lightened.

    don't think so, the current one is certainly darker than what we had throughout the 80s, 90s and prior to the last world cup.

    It's certainly darker than the jerseys from the 90s and 00s but it's akin to the shirt worn on the 80s and before that:

    it's still not the manky bottle green we have now though.

    It went from dark green to bright green to back again.

    Is that Keeeeeeef Wood in that picture?

    He should handle the designs of Ireland's new jersey....he'd make it manly.

    I like noidsay's idea of the shamrocks. The base colour should be that darker green and adorning it should be hundreds of small shiny, fluorescent shamrocks!!!!
