Canterbury are getting destroyed online for their new Irish rugby kit reveal
The Irish rugby team, in particular, Canterbury are taking an absolute battering on social media as they revealed the brand new kit for their 2020/2021 season.
The Irish rugby team revealed their kit early on Thursday morning, with a video revealing a new jersey.
To be honest, we are not fans as the front of the shirt which appears to to have a strange design on the front which is reminiscent of a 90’s football jersey.
Take a closer look at the new @IrishRugby home jersey, which is available now at Intersport Elverys!

Fans have been quick to make their thoughts known on the new rugby kit which is currently selling for €110 on Elverys. Fans from all sides of the rugby World have been quick to leave their opinion on the new kit.
This is what Canterbury had to say about the new kit.
The Canterbury IRFU 2020 Home Test Jersey is breathable, moisture-wicking and quick drying, with a crew neck for extra comfort. So now you can show off the shamrock all day, every day.
Paddy Power were one of the first groups to openly savage the new shirt.
Funny, as soon as I saw the new Irish rugby away kit, I was thinking how it demanded attention and embodied youth, vibrancy and energy while also featuring the block pattern that is synonymous with the new range.

Others were quick to jump on the weird PR description that Canterbury gave for their new shirt.
This has to stop…….

Canterbury has had a bad press with their releases in recent years.
During the Rugby World Cup, fans felt like the kit provider simply copy and pasted kit designs for the 2019 tournament.
Hmmm…. not sure about this one. Puma had better Irish jersey designs than what Canterbury have come up with over the last few years. https://t.co/5coiLx5dCX

Other fans spoke very clearly about how much they disliked the kit on social media this morning.
