RANKINGS: Best Rugby Jerseys from the 2020 Autumn Nations Cup

6. ENGLAND

Umbro played it safe here with their first ever jersey for England. We're not complaining though.

Granted, there's not a lot of scope for creative freedom with the white and red of England but Umbro have made this a clean and crisp jersey, with patterned elements around the O2 sponsor a nice touch. 

5. ITALY

Simple at a first glance, this Italy rugby jersey is a worth a closer inspection.

The subtle horizontal stripes across the front pull the jersey together nicely, with the green, white and red stitches across the collar a lovely addition. Could this pave the way for more green on the Italy rugby kit moving forward?

4. IRELAND

Canterbury have pushed the boat out a bit, now seven years into their kit sponsorship with the IRFU.

The new jersey, which launched in August this year, comprises of a block pattern, representing 'strength, power and unity', deviating away from the single-tone green we've been used to in the past with Ireland. 

Their away jersey is even bolder, but we'll touch upon that another day.

 

 

 

 

 

3. FRANCE

We're getting football vibes with this one from Les Bleus, reminding us of France's 1998 FIFA World Cup shirt.

It's a retro move from the French, with hints of their RWC 1987 jersey, aided b the white and red stripes running from the collar to sleeve.

 

 

You can usually count on France for a clean and crisp jersey but we're not convinced by the two-tone blue they've gone for with this attempt.

 

 2. WALES

It's all in the details. This is an absolute beaut from Macron who have pulled it out the bag here.

Wales 2020 Autumn Nations Cup Jersey

Finally we have some green on the Wales jersey to give them the full palette of the Welsh flag and distinguish them from other red-and-white jersey adorning nations like Canada.

 

The back of the jersey is where the magic is. A dragon embossed at the lower back and the word ANRHYDEDD (honour) at the top of the jersey just underneath the colour both add give this jersey a true Welsh feel - and we're sure opposing players will be picking out the details at the breakdown. 
Bravo Macron.

1. SCOTLAND
White shorts and socks are back on the menu for the Scotland rugby kit this autumn. It's a move away from the all navy/tartan numbers the Scottish have worn in recent years and we're all here for it.
 

Not only do we get a touch of white in the kit, we're also treated to a glimmer of gold in the Scotland jersey. Yes, gold and Scotland rugby in the same paragraph. A light touch on the end of the sleeves is a homage to the 150th anniversary of the first ever rugby match, which took place in 1871.

 

The white collar is a nice addition too but we can't see Jamie Ritchie's collar staying white for long...
