The IRFU have unveiled their alternate kit for the 2016/17 and it's a very interesting colour.

A statement from Canterbury says: "The new alternate kit focuses on the heritage surrounding Irish rugby. Taking inspiration from Lansdowne Road, the oldest rugby ground in the world and the historical home of the IRFU, 4 gold bar tacks link to the embroidery on the original Lansdowne Caps.

"Designed for both players and rugby fans, the alternate kit features the full range of innovations present in the home jersey, including VapoDri+ which ensures the best performance in all weather conditions.

"Targeted articulation and ventilation guarantees players are supported throughout the game, with the stretch drill collar adding further flexibility when under pressure.

"Working closely with the Irish rugby team and management, Canterbury has developed a kit that does not rely on luck, and is committed to ensuring the best performance for the team."

It it maroon, purple... Difficult to say!
