When Canterbury took over the design responsibilities for the England rugby kits, their first release was met with mixed reactions, although in all honesty it is difficult to move away from the iconic white tone which is a rich part of English rugby heritage. Clearly though the Canterbury designers were saving all their ideas for their 7s rugby shirts as they have truly come up with some ingenious, if not slightly controversial, looks for their latest releases.
The fast-paced action of the Sevens game demands a rugby shirt which can keep up with the game and Canterbury have certainly created a look which will both stand out on the rugby field as well as divide opinions wherever it is worn.
After previewing the latest design on our Lovell Rugby Facebook page last week, there was certainly some strong views and comments so we decided to give you a more close up view of what England will be pulling on during the Sevens World Series.
Rather than going into elaborate detail about the designs of the new home and alternate England Sevens Rugby Shirts, we will let the images speak for themselves so you can can make up your own mind.
