England’s new home kit was unveiled by Canterbury earlier this week, and we’re giving away a jersey to one lucky winner. It’s also a good time to mention the new #RugbyFit campaign, a unique fitness and rugby challenge that features a Rugbydump XV.

The new kit, the lightest ever made by Canterbury, is available to fans with a special new feature. Each one will have a commemorative plaque, which carries an exclusive number, part of Canterbury’s new ‘Unbreakable Bond’ campaign.

The kit will be worn for the first time in the 2017 Old Mutual Wealth Series.  

The face of our new #RugbyFit campaign (more on that soon), Dylan Hartley, said: “We’re all committed to improving as a team and it’s great to see this philosophy is shared by Canterbury. It gives us real confidence knowing we are wearing the best possible kit to help optimise our performance.”

Hartley has been working with a Rugbydump branded team in preparation for a unique clash with a Robbie Henshaw led RugbyLad branded team, taking place in Dublin next month. We will bring you up to speed on that contest soon, with some behind the scenes footage.

The new shirt is now available on pre-sale and available in stores from Tuesday 29th August. Access online via: EnglandRugbyStore.com and Canterbury.com.

    I'd like to see some statistical analysis of whether head injuries are up since the advent of tight fitting shirts compared to before when looser fitting shirts were worn. The tackling has changed. In American football a lot has been done with equipment to make the game safer. I wonder in rugby if tight shirts could be seen as having to go as a safety precaution if indeed the wearing of such is leading to more head injuries. A player can't just grab onto a shirt anymore, most of the time anyway.

    Dr. G, I hear you. Just how much faster can someone run with this newfangled kit? My guess is what, .05 of a second faster over 100 meters? Another ugly design, some sort of phony collar to it which is just, well, phony! Just go back to the solid white shirts, and, for heaven's sake, with collars, like Ireland, Scotland and the Lions have. I can accept that polyester is here to stay, but do what baseball did in America: go back to a traditional look!

    Are they shaving their legs too, to reduce wind resistance when running?
