Rugby Australia have today announced the jersey which will be worn by the Wallabies at the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.
On first impression, the jersey looks to be a relatively simple, clean, and plain one, which has been received reasonably well on Wednesday morning by fans.
The strip which will be worn for the sport’s showpiece international tournament is predominantly yellow with no patterns on the main portion of the jersey.
The jersey is then finished with a green collar and end of the sleeve, while the Wallabies logo is also positioned on the left shoulder, and the Rugby World Cup logo on the right shoulder.

Further to that, the coat of arms, manufacturer and Rugby World Cup logos are all displayed across the chest of the shirt.
The yellow playing shirt is complemented by green shorts with a yellow trim and logo, while the socks are also predominantly yellow with a green finish.

The jersey being used for the Cup is in some ways similar to the strip worn by the Australian outfit in 2015 without some dark green from the right shoulder and replaces the white collar with green.
The World Cup will get underway on Friday, September 20 as Japan play Russia in the opening match. The Wallabies will kick-off their campaign in an attempt to go one step better than four years ago in England when they take on Fiji on Saturday, September 21 at the Sapporo Dome.
Australia’s path through the tournament will then see them play Wales, Uruguay and Georgia across the remainder of the group stage.
Roarers, what’s your verdict on the new jersey?
