England and Canterbury yesterday unveiled the new alternate rugby jersey and accompanying lifestyle collection, which the RFU says honours the proud traditions of English Rugby as it’s inspired by an iconic 1871 painting depicting an epic Yorkshire v Lancashire, War of the Roses-style, game of rugby.
Really? Are you sure it wasn’t inspired by a charming series of children’s books that challenge the reader to find a loveable character wearing a distinctive red and white striped cardigan?!
What do you think of the new kit?
