(Baby it's) All White Now
You’d be disappointed, therefore, if I didn’t at least acknowledge the launch of England’s new rugby kit today.
I may have mentioned previously my general disgust at how the RFU tends to launch a new England kit every 10 minutes but, while I stand by previous comments, I must say that the new all white kit – as white as the driven snow – is a pleasant surprise.
When France launched their new Nike kit for the World Cup, the portents were not good. It does appear, however, that the Nike design team were denied all access to mind-altering substances when given the England brief. Put simply, this is what an England shirt should look like.
- call me old-fashioned (and many do), but I would have preferred a collar; and
- white socks? The only way is Essex.
