Canterbury, the world’s largest dedicated rugby brand, has launched its new strip for Scotland, ahead of the upcoming EMC Tests.
Using the Saltire as inspiration, the new shirt has been designed to bring to life the pride and passion that Scottish players are renowned for so famously around the world of rugby.
The 2012 EMC Tests will see Scotland take to the field wearing the new kit against reigning Rugby World Cup holders and recently crowned Rugby Championship winners, New Zealand.
The new strip was unveiled outside the Omni Centre in Edinburgh against a giant “in the flesh” backdrop emblazoned across the building.
Scotland face tough opposition in this year’s three tests against New Zealand, new world number two ranked side and 2007 Rugby World Cup winners South Africa and Tonga, but the team will be looking to build on their successful summer tour against the Southern Hemisphere sides where they won all three fixtures including a nail-biting encounter with Australia.
