A new Springbok jersey featuring the national sports emblem – the King Protea – will be launched in time for the Test series against the British & Irish Lions in June.
Sport 24 reports that the president’s council was advised at their meeting in Johannesburg on Wednesday that the practicalities of the change had been successfully completed in partnership with apparel supplier Canterbury.
The new-look jersey will feature the national sports emblem on the left-hand side and the leaping springbok on the right, in line with a president’s council decision of December. The springbok badge will be simplified with the dropping of the current device of a ball within a protea that is placed above the springbok.
The new jersey will be formally launched at a date to be decided.Tweet
