At least it's not purple

Another season, another blatant and shameless attempt by the RFU to extort yet more money from English rugby fans.

Yes, it's that time of year again and here it is, another entirely pointless "away" kit that no doubt will be worn at Twickenham this Autumn to avoid a non-existent colour clash with someone or other.

As for the usual self-justifying guff, apparently it's all part of a new '1871 Collection' inspired by the iconic ‘The Battle of the Roses' painting from the late 19th century and is designed to reflect the rich heritage, style and tradition of England Rugby, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah...

Looks like a stick of Blackpool rock.

I have to believe that the folks who design this nonsense have an inter team competition every year to see who can come up with the most ludicrous design, justified by some sort of utter bollox, and then see if the RFU will go for it. This year one of those teams has played a blinder.

okay, far from me to look at the trouser depatrment, but blokee on the left seems to be thinking impure thoughts...

As for that '1871 look', did O2 sponsor England's kit that far back?
