Young rugby fans can now show their colours and get behind the Boys in Green for less then €7.

It comes as an international supermarket chain has teamed up with the IRFU to sell official gear.

Aldi's new rugby range was launched by the store yesterday.

The merchandise will go on sale from Sunday and will be available for supporters in time for Ireland's Guinness series of matches, which take place next month. Among the merchandise available will be hoodies, tracksuit tops, T-shirts and shorts.

Prices for the gear start at €6.99 for kids, with €27.99 being the most expensive item - an adult soft shell jacket.

The supermarket chain said for every item sold, 50c will go towards helping grassroots rugby as part of their Aldi Play Rugby programme.

Ireland have three matches as part of their international tests next month.

Joe Schmidt's men will play South Africa on November 11, Fiji on November 18 and Argentina on November 25.

And the nation is holding its breath for November 14, when we will find out if the bid to host World Cup 2023 was successful.
