Back to Black

The wait is finally over and New Zealand have at last launched their eagerly anticipated new kit for the Rugby World Cup and it's...
...wait for it...

...BLACK (gasp!).

Meanwhile I see that the RFU's mission to wind up sundry Kiwis continues to be a rip-roaring success, with Jonah Lomu this week spouting off about England showing an apparent lack of respect (that word again) by deciding to wear an all black change kit at the RWC.

Frankly I couldn't give a rat's left testicle about whether Lomu or any other rent-a-quote New Zealander is upset by this. What continues to irk me is the contempt in which the RFU obviously holds the England rugby supporter in its seemingly insatiable pursuit of the consumer dollar.

Still, if we continue to buy whatever the RFU tells us to, perhaps we only have ourselves to blame?

I think if you read what Lomu actually said he was referring to disrespecting "the famous WHITE jersey"

You are so obsessed with New Zealand rugby! It's an honour, it really is.

So... Anyone keen on turning a quick buck (or pound) by offering to on ship jerseys to NZ?
