The Springboks are ready for action and will look good while running out against Australia at Loftus Versfeld this Saturday.
SA Rugby and Nike have signed a six-year partnership and have recently revealed the new look Springbok jersey.
This is not just any old Springbok jersey. Although the green and gold colours are still prominent, this is seen as a rather alternative jersey as it pays tribute to local culture with its patterned print. It also contains a colour scheme that draws inspiration from and “celebrates the natural hues of the region”.
At the unveiling, Rian Oberholzer, CEO of SA Rugby shared his excitement.
“The anticipation and expectancy around today have been building for months. We are immensely proud of what Nike has provided, and the feedback from the team has been exceptional since they were outfitted with the training gear recently.”
He went on to say that the incorporated traditions and subtle enhancements have been welcomed.
“The new jersey not only upholds the cherished traditions of the Springboks, but also incorporates subtle enhancements that make it truly unique. We couldn’t be happier.”
