Leinster’s New Kits For 2015/16 Season Are Revealed

Canterbury have launched the new Leinster home and alternate jerseys for the 2015/16 season.

The new Leinster home jersey boasts an electric royal blue colour, synonymous with Leinster Rugby, with a contrasting razor sharp white detail on the shoulders. The most striking design feature is the 12 stripe chevrons which run seamlessly along the front of the jersey with each one paying homage to each county in the province of Leinster.

Leinster’s alternate jersey (pictured below, worn by Ben Te’o, Devin Toner and Jordi Murphy) is equally as striking, white with royal blue chevron stripes making a bold statement along the front of the jersey which is complemented by the subtle 360° loop collar of the same colour. The jersey look is completed with the three gold stars which mark the province’s European Cup wins.

Canterbury continue to work closely with Leinster to push the boundaries of innovation in their kit design in order to maximise performance, whilst staying true to the brand’s heritage of producing the world’s strongest rugby kits. This can be seen with the continued 360° loop bound neckline which is another innovative design feature that has been evolved to withstand every physicality of the game.

On the pitch, players will benefit from a range of innovations developed by Canterbury, including super-enhanced fit technology, developed through position specific 3D body mapping, supporting the varied physique of the modern rugby player. The jersey also benefits from VAPODRI technology along with a reduced fabrication weight, which minimises moisture absorption, improving on the look, feel and performance of the jersey on the field.

To celebrate the launch of the new 2015/16 season Leinster jersey, Canterbury, official kit supplier to the province, has today announced the biggest collection of money can’t buy prizes and experiences in the province’s history.

Bucket list dreams for Leinster fans will be answered including rubbing shoulders with the team on the official Leinster jet travelling to an away match, overseeing the official pre-match coin toss, or watching your Leinster adoring child run onto the pitch as the teams match day mascot and much, much more.

Entries are being submitted through Canterbury’s Facebook page where fans will be asked to think outside the box and prove why they are Leinster’s most committed fan using words, images, videos, links to YouTube, Instagram or Vine, or by tweeting using #CommittedToLeinster. Full terms and conditions as well as details on the prizes available can be found on Canterbury’s Facebook page or on www.canterbury.com.

The new jersey will be worn for the first time by Leinster in the Bank of Ireland pre-season friendly against Moseley RFC at Donnybrook on Friday, August 28.
