REVEALED - Leinster unveil new home jersey with checkered design
Leinster have launched their new home jersey for the upcoming season.
The new creation from Canterbury was unveiled today with a checkered design which is unlike any other Leinster jersey in the past. It also includes a gold strip around the collar and, as ever, the three stars above the Leinster crest honouring their three European Cup triumphs.
Leo Cullen's men will hope to carry the jersey to success in the Guinness PRO14 and European Champions Cup this season.
The early reaction on social media was positive.
That Leinster jersey though— Jonathon (@ItsOnlyJk) August 8, 2017
Suspect that jersey will look nicer on TV / wearing than in an image on twitter. No neon is a big plus. Bit funky. I like it #Leinster— Covfefe O'Donoghue (@ColmODonoghue) August 8, 2017

So here's a picture of the new Leinster jersey through a window. It's checkered blue & navy with a similar design to the new Ireland jersey. pic.twitter.com/oQVeCTGp24— Rugbywaffle (@RugbywaffleBlog) August 7, 2017
