The Ospreys have revealed a stunning new look ahead of this evening’s game against Saracens in London, with the unveiling of the new 2018/19 alternate jersey by Canterbury.
Based on the same linear design as the home shirt, which has been a huge hit with supporters since it’s launch earlier this month, the striking design is a departure from the traditional Ospreys look, putting the accent colour of arctic blue from the home shirt at the heart of the design.
It will be worn for the first time this evening when the Ospreys face Gallagher Premiership champions Saracens at the Honourable Artillery Company in the City.
Like the home shirt, the new alternate jersey features the very latest in rugby technology.
To enable the players to keep up with the demands of the game of rugby, Canterbury has designed a kit that delivers the best in function and fit. The new kit features a new one-piece crossover crew collar which reduces neck pump, keeping the players cooler and removing distraction. The forward facing side seam allows the jersey to twist with the player, aiding smooth movement. It also includes VapoDri technology, which is designed to wick moisture away from the body and maintain core temperature
