Radical new jersey for All Blacks

The All Blacks have unveiled a new alternate strip which they will wear in their final test of the year in Paris this weekend.

RNZ reports the traditional white of the alternate All Blacks jersey remains the primary colour, but the colour black is retained in a graphic design through the collar, chest and shoulders, with the players also wearing black shorts and socks.

adidas Rugby spokesperson Simon Cartwright said it was "a striking, new design inspired by the team's creativity and their dynamic style of play".

All Blacks captain Kieran Read said "for us, it's rare that we get to wear the alternate jersey, so we're genuinely excited to run out in a completely different and innovative design for our Test against France".
