Nike's Revenge

It appears that Nike's final act as the kit supplier to the RFU has been to stick luminous yellow reflective strips onto the kit of the England Sevens teams.

The new kit, modelled here by Chris Cracknell and Michaela Staniford, will feature at the final two tournaments of the World Series in Glasgow and London next month.

Nike, who will be replaced by Canterbury as England kit supplier from September, look as if they might have the last laugh with this effort - unless, of course, it is all part of a cunning plan by the RFU to play the London Sevens in the dark.

horrible innit, but you need to read the release info

The white home kit and purple away kit - which England will also wear at in Glasgow on May 5-6 - features yellow stripes down the arms and chest, fitting for the tournament's 1970s disco theme.

Ah, but the sad fact is that I'm old enough to remember going to discos in the 70s and don't recall ever seeing anyone wearing reflective yellow stripes on the dancefloor.

Will we be issued with glow sticks so we know where the ball is at the bottom of a ruck? Just a thought.
