Show your pride for the thistle whether you’re dressing casually or ready for action at the Stadio Olimpico in this 18/19 Italy Cotton L/S Supporters Rugby Shirt from Macron. The international rugby team Italy have collaborated with Macron for kits and training attire since 2017. Italian rugby really came to prominence in 2000 when it was added to the Five Nations, creating the Six Nations. Initially, on the end of some heavy defeats, the side has grown in competitiveness, recording a fourth-place finish in 2007 and 2013, and even in defeat, lop-sided losses are less frequent. The elite playing jersey was created using the latest technology available, providing Italy’s squad with the utmost freedom of movement whilst they play and keeping moisture away from the body to keep the Scots cool on the pitch. This traditional cotton jersey is loose fit with polyester stretch inserts, long sleeves for those that love the classic rugby shirt style and features a traditional collar. This shirt is the classic Italian rugby colour of royal blue and it comes with a white collar and 3 button placket. This shirt features a green, white and red stripe across the body and sleeves which is a nod to the Italian flag colours. The Italian badge has been embroidered onto the chest on the left side.
