A gold touch for the first time in their history, the Wales WRU 2016/17 Alternate Kids Replica Rugby Shirt sees blood running through the design. Made by Under Armour from polyester and created for a loose fit, from a performance perspective then ultra-durable HeatGear fabric brings strength and comfort to the jersey while textured-mesh panels provide strategic ventilation. With durable insets positioned around the shoulders, cuffs and neck, these add stretch to key areas so you’ve plenty of flexible movement, whether getting down to action or raising your arms when cheering on the team. Such is the attention to detail that a smooth flatlock seam construction also ensures chafe-free motion so no annoying irritations and enhanced comfort from your favourite Wales rugby shirt. When red’s no option, it’s a solid show of anthracite through the jersey that sees gold and ‘Oxblood’ details the main focus. With the gold inspired by the highly prized rarity once found in Welsh mines, the ‘Oxblood’ follows an ancient superstition that the blood of a strong animal would bring strength and was previously used in Welsh structures. Naturally the WRU badge takes pride of place atop the chest and a neat professional touch is that of a grippy texture applied to the lower body.
