Brand New Springbok Rugby Jersey Launched!

Check out our green and gold champions in the latest kit

Last Update 31 May 2017 

After the recent announcement of the 2017 Springbok squad and the naming of the 58th Springbok Captain - Warren Whiteley, we have been waiting in eager anticipation for more news on our dream team. Wait no longer rugby-lovers! The all-new ASICS-designed and manufactured Springbok rugby jersey for 2017 has just been unveiled by ASICS and SA Rugby.

The launch of iconic jersey on 31 May 2017 is said to be the culmination of many months of hard work by scientists at the ASICS Institute of Sport Science in Kobe, Japan, in collaboration with SA Rugby and the Springboks.

You’ll get to see our talented Boks playing in the new-look jersey during the Castle Lager Incoming Series against France in June 2017. Don’t stress rugga-bugga’s, as you will be able to get your hands on the new jersey from 1 June 2017.

The jersey is said to represent a traditional look along with a few modern touches. The green chest and back area is filled with a scattering of mini springboks spread across the surface - adding finer detail to the jersey. The gold collar rounds off the classic rugby jersey with a touch of class.

The technical aspects of the jersey include the tight fit with minimum underarm seams for maximum comfort for our champions as well as the collar coming with a modern quick release snap closure. The body and neckline seams have reinforced taped constructions for optimum strength when it comes to the stretch of the jersey and its snap back capability.

“The new jersey by ASICS is at the forefront of cutting-edge technology and offers the team an added advantage by playing in their most technologically advanced jersey yet,” said SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux. He further quipped that it was, “meticulously designed and engineered[...] to give the Springboks the blend of comfort and performance [giving] them the edge on the field”.

Our favourite “Beast”, Springbok prop and ASICS ambassador, Tendai Mtawarira said that he finds the new jersey amazing and that he is excited to play in it. He even mentioned that the jersey was, “simple yet stylish” quipping that it was brilliantly designed.

We can’t wait to see our stylish Boks strut it out, scoring tries for us in this new kit! Buy your own jersey for R750 at selected sports retail outlets from 1 June 2017!
