Either SARU are on the cutting edge of fashion and are hoping that the ‘undies on the outside’ look is going to take-off at the next Paris fashion week – or they have just lost their minds completely.
The new Sevens kit revealed yesterday has raised a few eyebrows to say the least and it has already been dubbed the ‘diaper kit’ by the South African press.
In SARU’s defence, they have vowed that the players will take to the field in the more traditional ‘tighty whities’ (who comes up with these names?) to avoid national humiliation and shame.
Personally I think the kit works – all it needs is a bib and a bonnet to complete the overall look.
