    I imagine that Ireland, Australia, and Scotland will be similar. Not too bad. I'm not crazy about the piping in the mid section, but not bad, really.

    The South Africa shirt (probable all Canterbury shirts) looks a lot like the old Nike Football World Cup 2002 shirts. Got a mate in Oz who says he seen the Australia shirt on tv and is exactly the same as SA but opposite colours with gold and green piping, and the usual stars.
  6. not everly keen if that turns out same as scotland shirt (shure you can all work out the colours) - but it could be wrose, we could have one of the nike shirts!

    perhaps the biggest disapointment is we will loose the TFG sponsorship! i cant imagine a scotland shirt without that!

    I didn't like the South African shirt when I first saw it either, but I think it might be one that grows on you... I'm starting to like it more already, but I agree with O'Roth, what is that piping on the mid section doing there??

    I hate the England World Cup shirts. They are terrible.

    Why can't the f***ing All Blacks get stupid little thin lines all over theirs aswell?

    So is this just for the world cup or will they be using them afterwards aswell?

    That ribbing over it is not really nice, still it's not as ugly as the English shirts. Don't think many boepens (beergut) boers would be too pleased with that ribbing restricting their flow....

    I was going to get one but not too sure now, it will only be cool after the RWC if they win

    They could've done without those collars as well.

    The SA one is okay, just glad the Boks ditched the Nike ones from the last WC. The England jerseys are hideous.

    I just hope it's not too late to change the colour of the mesh to gold, there's an aweful lot of it.

    I actually don't mind the Aussie and bok ones as much as I did in the begining... sorta growing on me. But yeah, England's is shocking! Their current one is tonnes better.

    The gripping is not on them, thank god.

    Does anyone know if the grip on the back of the wallabies jersey will be for the whole team or just the forwards? It's a bit pointless for the backs isn't it?

    I feel sorry for Adidas.
    They spend millions upon millions getting the All Blacks franchise and having no other name on the jersey but theirs and then when it comes to the shirt-designing time the bloody All Blacks won't let them do anything with the jersey. Black sells - yes, but it also sells if it's got some white panels on it or something.

    But South Africa have got a cracking kit. I saw that quite a few months ago and i really liked it back then, only i'm not too keen on the ozzie ones.
    And i applaud England and France for allowing Nike to take their jerseys in what is quite a different direction. It's a nice breath of fresh air and the jerseys are smart.
    They've clearly got on their financial thinking caps.

    You really think so? The France colour scheme suits that design well, but on England it looks terrible...

    I think the boks looks the best of the canterbury ones, but the Aus one would look just as good if they'd made the mesh gold. As it stands the Aus one sorta looks like our soccer one now though, but more high tech, and I actually sorta like it.

    The ABs is a classy classic, and the fact that it always remains simplistic with the ABs logo on one side and the Adidas one on the other makes it the most instantly destinguishable uniform in any sport IMO. If you started putting lines through it and messing it around you'd pretty much destroy the whole "All Black" brand...

    But if you look closely at the new RWC jersey off the AB-Addidas shop site you'll see that they are still trying to make it more definable in subtle ways:

    Yeah, you've got a point about its simplistic, trademark look - but i was talking to the Adidas rep in my shop the other day and he was saying that the desingers were itching to do something a little different with the jerseys. Initial ideas was to have that fern in a different colour than black, but the All Blacks refused any other colour on it.
    It's just my personal opinion, but i'd like to see a change in the AB's jersey (not a huge one) because i geniunely believe they'll get more sales from it also. For everyone who's got an AB's jersey, now they'll get the new one with the additional colour or whatever.
    I just know that the only reason people come into the shop and buy new AB jersey is because their old one has gone to look too faded.
    The AB's could be get annual customers in this country if they changed their kits enough.

    Yeah, I see what you're saying with regards to marketing, but the problem remains that they are called the "All Blacks"... because that's what they are... It would just never work. I personally like the fact that they pretty much the only constant in world rugby (in more ways than one).

    and anyway they do sort of cater to marketing need anyway by changing the designs of their training jerseys and tracksuits etc.
