Who has the best RWC kits? Check them out. Please note that all strips are generally made in two versions- one is the test one, which the players wear, and the other is the replica. There may be minor differences between the two.
England RWC 2015 Shirts (Canterbury)
Hosts England will wearing Canterbury at the 2015 Rugby World Cup (they wore Nike uniforms at RWC 2011). They will be having a red alternate kit, and the red jersey will get a run out in the opening match of RWC 2015 against Fiji
Australia RWC 2015 Jerseys (Asics)
The Wallabies wore KooGa at the 2011 edition of the tournament in New Zealand, but have switched to Asics for RWC 2015.
Wales Rugby World Cup Tops 2015 (Under Armour)
Unlike the other two heavyweights in this group, Wales’ kit partners are the same from 2011- Under Armour. How much will Warren Gatland’s side be affected by the loss of Rhys Webb and Leigh Halfpenny?
Fiji RWC Jerseys 2015 (BLK)
The Flying Fijians are the outsiders in Group A, but will have a big say in deciding who qualifies from this extremely tight group

Manu Samoa RWC Jerseys 2015 (BLK)
Despite their off field struggles in recent years, Samoa remain a strong Tier 2 outfit, and will fancy their chances of making it out of the group with the Springboks.
Scotland RWC Tops 2015 (Macron)
The Scots are the only team at the 2015 Rugby World Cup to wear Macron. They wore Canterbury at RWC 2011.

Ireland RWC Strips 2015 (Canterbury)
Ireland are the reigning 6 Nations champions and have made great strides under Joe Schmidt. They have a fairly favourable draw too and should they win this group as expected, they’ll fancy their chances of making it to the semis, and maybe even further. The Irish wore Puma at the last World Cup.
France Rugby World Cup Uniforms 2015 (Adidas)
Les Bleus have switched from Nike to Adidas. They made it to the final in 2011, but no one, not even themselves, know how far they’ll go this year. Can beat the best on their day, can lose to the worst on the same day.
