England away shirt for Autumn Nations Series revealed

Umbro has revealed new England Rugby away kits to be worn by the England men’s and women’s teams for the 2021/22 season.

For the first time in the professional era of the women’s game a bespoke kit has been developed for the Red Roses. Continuing the commitment by Umbro to champion the women’s game, the kit has been made in collaboration with the team, taking inspiration from the players’ pride in the jersey, their collective aspirations, and the personalities within the squad.

LIST | England’s five WORST jerseys of all-time

Feast your gaze on these horrible England eyesores from down the years…

1. Sevens – 2013

Getting a bit more adventurous with this kaleidoscopic cornea burner from the England Sevens team. Thes multi-coloured front seems reminiscent of a dance-floor in a cheesy 70’s disco club. Extraordinary.

2. 1980’s – Umbro

If this is any indication of what their jerseys will be like moving forward, we could be in trouble after Umbro officially took over from Canterbury, signing a four-year deal with the RFU.

Looks like a toddler’s crayon rampage,

3. England away – 2009

Apparently the choice is a ‘regal’ shade of purple, fit for a country known for its royalty. 

The fact England never won in this shirt means it should never be done again. Oh wait, it was, but a little bit better.

4. Rugby World Cup – 2007

Four years on from their World Cup triumph, Nike completely changed their design and as good as it looked on a model it was not exactly the most attractive on the pitch with splashes of red on the shirt and shorts looking incredibly messy.

However, England were able to reach a second successive World Cup final, but this time narrowly lost out 15-6 to the Springboks at Stade de France.

5. England away -2014

In between World Cup cycles there’s a touch more room for creativity and the 2013-14 alternate strip certainly look heed to that view.

The 2013-14 change of jersey caused quite a stir when it was launched, but anyone who bought it was left disappointed as it was only actually worn in competitive matches by the women and U20s during that season. 

Its design cues came from the painting of the ‘The Battle of the Roses: Yorkshire versus Lancashire’ that hangs on the wall of the President’s Suite at Twickenham Stadium.
