Cherry and Whites launch mint green away shirt

Gloucestershire Echo - - ATHLETICS -

GLOUCES­TER Rugby un­veiled their new away kit last week­end and it’s get­ting var­ied re­ac­tions.

The colour scheme was per­haps hinted at when the train­ing range was re­leased a few weeks ago in­cor­po­rat­ing a mint green into much of it.

And that’s very much the dom­i­nant flavour in the new shirt, with dark blue stripes break­ing up the top.

This year’s kit is made by Oxen Sports, part of Elite Pro Sports which were for­merly called Xblades.

So although it’s a new name on the man­u­fac­turer’s logo, it’s still the same com­pany.

Im­ages of the kit, mod­elled by Eng­land fly-half Danny Cipri­ani days af­ter his re­turn to the in­ter­na­tional set-up, were re­leased this morn­ing on the club’s so­cial me­dia feeds and it’s in stock at their Glouces­ter Quays shop.

More of the fans com­ment­ing on Twit­ter and Face­book seem to like it than not.

One said: “Ab­so­lutely love this.” An­other said: “Nicest away kit we’ve had in years!”

But one com­menter posted a ‘be­ing sick’ emoji and an­other de­scribed it as ‘Nasty! Looks like a packet of chewing gum.’
