Getting shirty

You know what I was pondering the other day?

I was thinking, “Gosh, hasn’t it been a long time since England last changed their rugby kit design. It’s been, oh, at least 6 months now – surely about time for a change.”

Imagine my relief therefore to read today’s announcement that the RFU have announced a long-term partnership with Canterbury to become their official kit partner from September 2012, ditching Nike in the process.

I think it's fair to say that Nike's designs have been somewhat hit and miss (see above) and I'm hoping for a return to a more traditional kit rather than some silly, generic, panelled Canterbury design as worn by the likes of Scotland and South Africa recently.

I won’t be holding my breath, however.
