Boks reveal new jersey

The new Springbok jersey for 2017 was unveiled by Asics and SA Rugby on Wednesday.

The launch of the iconic jersey is the culmination of several months of hard work by scientists at the Asics Institute of Sport Science in Kobe, Japan, in collaboration with SA Rugby and the Springboks.

The Boks will wear the new jersey for the first time against France at Loftus on 10 June.

Supporters will be able to buy the jersey from 1 June for R750.

The jersey represents a traditional look and feel, with a modern touch. The green chest and back area has a scattering of mini springboks spread across the surface for added detail and the gold collar adds a touch of class to round off a classic rugby jersey.

The match jerseys feature a tight fit with minimum underarm seams for maximum comfort, as well as a traditional rugby collar with modern quick release snap closure. The body and neckline seams have reinforced taped constructions for optimum strength when the jersey is stretched and then snap backs to its original position.
