Japan ready.

Under Armour and the Welsh Rugby Union have today revealed Wales’ new home and alternate rugby kits which will be worn by Warren Gatland’s team at the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The quartered-design on the front of both jerseys represents the corners of Wales uniting behind the national team and inspired by the medieval coat of arms of Llywelyn the Great, the plating effect found on a suit of armour and the line ‘…my strength and shield’ from the hymn ‘Bread of Heaven’*.

These quarters are separated by a chevron shape designed at angles of 18.81 degrees** to nod to the year [1881] when the WRU was formed.

The alternate kit sees the 2019 Guinness Six Nations winners return to a green jersey for the first time since 1995, together with white shorts with green trim and green socks.

A new look shield-shaped crest will feature exclusively on kits worn by the senior national teams. The new kits will be available to buy via ua.com and store.wru.uk from 20th July.
