In preparation, Canterbury scrutinised every aspect of the game to design a training kit that can handle the physical demands of international rugby. During the design process Canterbury jerseys, shorts and socks were rigorously tested by grass roots, elite and international teams from across the UK, Ireland and New Zealand, to ensure they perform at the highest level.
The first training drop features a selection of performance apparel and accessories including shorts, tees, a singlet, pants, hats and bag, all based on a colour palette of bright white, red hues, mazarine blue marl and navy. Selected products from the range feature Canterbury’s pioneering technology including Vapodri – designed to wick moisture away from the body, Vaposhield – to repel water and Thermoreg – designed to manage and retain natural heat.
Commenting on the launch of the new range, Simon Rowe, Head of Sports Marketing at Canterbury of New Zealand, said: “Preparation will be key for the England team this year and as official kit sponsors we pride ourselves on providing the players with top quality, reliable kit, enabling them to focus solely on their performance and pushing themselves in every training session.
“The design team has worked meticulously with players of all levels to create a range that is not only technically innovative and of the highest quality but also delivers in both comfort and style, whether you are heading out to Japan or lining up with your mates of a weekend.”
