The Rugby World Cup is fast approaching and part of the fun of the lead-up is seeing the jerseys everyone will be wearing.

The designs are pouring in as the tournament edges closer and we're keeping track of all the unveilings as they happen.

Come back to our Kit Central to check out each new strip.

Their Indigenous-inspired alternate jersey, to be worn against Uruguay and in a potential semi-final, caught plenty of attention as well.

While it might initially appear to be a stock standard black jersey, the shirt has silver ferns imprinted over it in a nod to New Zealand's Maori culture.

Their training kits were also inspired by the Maoris and Japanese culture, incorporating a mythical creature on the back of a teal top.

Japan have shaken up their usual red stripes with a more angular design for this tournament, unveiling their jersey in a dramatic video at the start of July.


England have unveiled their 2019 Rugby World Cup jersey. Photo: Getty ImagesEngland have opted for a fairly simple design with their trademark white jersey and opted for a navy and red strip with their alternate.

Halfback Ben Youngs showed off the white jersey in London while tom Curry and Elliot Daly presented the more colourful option.


Wales have stuck with their traditional red strip for the  upcoming World Cup, but it's their alternate jersey that is most striking.

The Welsh unveiled their jersey for the tournament over the weekend, revealing the two kits ahead of September's Rugby World Cup kick-off.

One of the more subtle changes is the quartering of the jersey to represent the four regions of Wales.

Should Wales don their alternate kit, which also includes green socks, it would be the first time they have donned all green since the 1995 Rugby World Cup.


Argentina continue their run of impressive jerseys with two strong offerings for the Rugby World Cup.

They've opted for a sky blue and white hooped jersey with a traditional collar for their primary jersey, a nod to classic rugby jerseys.

They've embraced colour with their alternate strip, going with a deep blue jersey, highlighted with lighter blue stripes and a yellow ombre strip down the centre.

Fiji  will don a white primary jersey with cultural insignia on the side panels and sleeves.

That colour scheme will be reversed in their alternate strip, with black on white should they be required to don the kit.

Ireland has kept with a simple green design for their main Rugby World Cup jersey, unveiled in July.

Their alternate jersey is a step away from tradition, with a speckled pale green look, with black textured shoulders. 


Scotland unveiled a slightly different looking main jersey this year.

Though their predominantly navy design is no surprise, the addition of tartan shoulders adds some special significance to the jersey at the World Cup.

Their alternate strip is mainly sky blue, with a navy tartan collar

Italy has opted for a royal blue jersey to wear as their primary kit, with navy accents on their cuffs and collars.

Their alternate jersey is predominantly white with blue hoops but again adding the navy accents.
