The new Springbok jersey was launched in Cape Town on Thursday. What do you think of it?
According to Asics, the jerseys are made with ‘motion dry’ technology which allows the players to wear the item tight-fitted while allowing for maximum natural freedom of movement and temperature management.
The seams are reinforced to mitigate tear risk and the jerseys use ‘gripper’ technology in the chest area to enable players to get a better hold of the ball. It’s also inside the jerseys along the hem to prevent the shirt from moving while the players are running.
The Boks will wear the jerseys for the first time when they take on a World XV on 7 June in Cape Town.
