While we’ve literally just wrapped up the international Test season, all eyes now turn to the incoming 2019 edition of Super Rugby, and of course, the new jersey unveilings that come with the revitalised tournament.
The Vodacom Bulls are one of the first off the mark, revealing their new home and away PUMA kit that will be donned throughout the competition; and there’s no denying that a lot of new design work has gone into this one.
The key visual design elements on the shirt are a chain mail underlay and panels in shades of blue representing the plates of body armour that protect warriors going into battle. The geometric panels are also arranged to create a graphic illustration of the head of a bull.
In a bid to create awareness for nature conservation, the away kit will feed into the Bull’s theme and campaign for next year built around courageous protectors, with a few exciting initiatives to be announced early in 2019 by the Vodacom Bulls and conservation partners South Africa National Parks and WILD card.
