All the jerseys from Six Nations 2018 The first Macron's kit for Italy, the last adidas' for France and the classics by Canterbury

This weekend Six Nations 2018 - the most important rugby tournament in the northern hemisphere - will begin. In this 2018 edition, Italy will play two home games, at the Olimpico stadium in Rome, and three away: the Azzurri open against England (defending champion) on Sunday the first day and the closing game against Scotland. They will instead visit Ireland, France and Wales. All the 6 Nations 2018 matches will be broadcast by DMAX channel, number 52 of digital terrestrial, 136 of Sky and live streaming on the free DPLAY web platform. From a technical point of view, this year's big favorites are England and Ireland, while Italy is the most credible candidate to win the wooden spoon, the humiliating banner assigned to the team that ranks last. If Italy will hardly win on the green rectangle, at least you can try on the side of the apparatus: rugby jerseys have experienced a moment of hype at the beginning of the millennium, which big brands are trying to reinvent between technical fabrics and contemporary aesthetics

Italy - Macron


One of the great news of the Six Nations' edition is the italian shirt, for the first time designed by the Bologna-based company Macron. The new shirt marks a return to the classic combination of blue shirt, with a shade of dark compared to the experiments of "television" colors made by adidas. The most striking detail is the golden border of the shirt and the same Macron logo. The uniform is completed by white shorts and blue socks.



Inghilterra  - Canterbury

England's shirt for the Six Nations 2018 is signed by Canterbury, the historic New Zealand brand that has been the England's kit manufacturer since 2012. The "home" t-shirt reflects the classic English taste: white with the two red logos and a light blue tinge on the sleeves. The uniform is completed by white shorts and socks. "Away" shirt is instead black with collar and shades on the white sleeves, very aggressive.


Francia - adidas

The upcoming Six Nations will be the last in which adidas will produce the shirt for the French national team, which has already signed a contract with Le Coq Sportif starting from 2019. After years of wonderful jerseys, adidas kept the contemporary attitude even for this last one, with a gemotric fantasy on the classic blue background. The double three stripes on the shoulders seem a little bit out of place and actually does not even convince the fake collar in technical fabric. The away shirt has a different fantasy in red and black V on a white background.


Irlanda - Canterbury

The New Zealand brand has designed the classic green jersey fot the Irish team. The design is very simple with white collar and green sweater, the Vodafone sponsor slightly pollutes the colorway of the shirt, but in short, you can not have everything. The away shirt is instead dark gray with green details.


Scozia - Macron

The scottish jersey designed by Macron is the most traditional among the 6 of the tournament: the collar is white, like the old heavy cotton uniforms that the introduction of technical fabrics and new design had abolished. The colorway presents the traditional navy blue and has on the back, in the lower part, the Cardo present on the historical tunic of the Grand Slam 1990 in the Six Nations. Under the collar there is space for the Scottish flag with the Saint Andrew's cross. Inside the light blue neck with Scotland in white. Tone-on-tone blocks are inserted on the sides of the shirt. The uniform is completed by white shorts with blue stripes on the sides and blue socks with white turn-ups. The away jersey has the same design but in inverted colors.


Galles - Under Armoury

The US company Under Armor signs for the tenth consecutive year the team of Wales, a team full of talent but often discontinuous results. The Under Armor kit is simple: knit and red shorts for the home uniform with the new Isuzu sponsor visible on the chest, thanks to the new sponsorship contract signed by the Welsh federation this summer.
