The world’s biggest rugby tournament begins in a few days from now as the Rugby World Cup takes centre stage in New Zealand. Here is a look at all Rugby World Cup Shirts from the 2011 edition of the tournament. Special RWC shirts are crafted for the tournament ( there is no sponsor’s logo present due to IRB regulations regarding RWC jerseys).
Teams mostly have a home rugby world cup shirt, and an alternate jersey, which will be only used when there is a clash of playing kits. Fans will obviously be keen to buy their team’s RWC shirts in order to show their support, but fans of the All Blacks in particular have felt short changed by Adidas’ pricing policies. ( The All Blacks rugby World Cup shirt costs half abroad what it costs in New Zealand)
Most RWC 2011 shirts are either made by KooGa or Canterbury with Adidas, Nike, Puma and Under Armour sponsoring some nations’ kits.
Currently contains all major nations’ RWC Shirts- will be updated for other nations’ kits.
