I reckon Nike will provide the best range of clobber overall.

Was it not a 8/9 year contract?

If Canterbury are capable of producing something that's actually respectable then fine. Otherwise I think Nike would be better.

PR releases at the time said an 8 year deal starting in 2009/10 season. E.g. http://www.irishrugby.ie/news/14199.php

Get out clauses are not unusual, I'd imagine, in such sponsorship deals. It suddenly being a 5/6 year deal is a bit odd, alright.

I liked the Puma stuff

Bought the first test jersey, second one was too plastic

I thought every jersey they brought out was much to be honest.

Would like it to go back to CCC.

Worst time to try and cut a new deal and they need to have jerseys for the lads to wear in November. . .

As the people who brought us the turquoise and black Ireland alternate jerseys, I say good riddance to Puma.

I have to say that Under Armour as a brand is very Cool. Would happily follow the Welsh
Anything except Adidas, or god forgive me, an unknow brand such as Burrda (Saints, Toulon Biarritz)

As i said in the thread in the Leinster section;

Wouldn't mind seeing O'Neills get the deal (nice shirts and an Irish brand). Probably can't compete with the likes of Nike/Adidas/CCC though. Rugbytech can make a nice shirt too every now and then.
