Not impressed ....... Their size range of gear for those of us with a "fuller figure" isn't great at all. They only go up to 3x whereas Canterbury go to 6x

It is entirely possible that I, as a brainless consumer, am just a slave to advertising, but I think Canterbury makes the best stuff bar none.

They are peerless in quality with some of my stuff (yes I have a lot of Canterbury) surviving more than 10 years now.

Adidas is obviously a very reputable brand, but this feels a bit like the IRFU move to Puma. And their stuff was total rubbish. I'd make better quality stuff out of bog roll.

But money talks, there are very few people who would be put off buying Leinster gear because of the supplier, so it Adidas are coming up with the $$$ then that's what it is
He's gotten awfully fond of that brick

The most important part of that story is that you will only be able to buy the kit from Lifestyle Sports, which strikes me as being a load of mercenary b*%&!x

They will have their work cut out for them fitting the 5 stars on the jersey in a neat and tidy fashion.

Top two brands? So the national team isn't a top brand?
