Full Respect

Unlike England’s pathetic jersey initiative, the new All Blacks jersey is spot on. Retro and classic in design, ahead in technology, half the weight (185g) of the previous shirt, and available in eight bespoke versions for individual players. Another example of Adidas respecting the jersey.

Respect to the Jersey maybe, to the NZ public who'd like to buy one I'm not convinced, your average kiwi is paying 60% more that overseas for a jersey 200 nz retail / (100 overseas retail + 10% freight + 15%GST ).
Even accounting for an unusually high NZ dollar, that is excessive & just doesn't look good.

I could not agree more.

Shame on Adidas ( New Zealand)
They must think we are a bunch of mugs!

I don't remember the All Blacks owning the colour black, but I do remember them playing in white!

Pity Adidas don't respect the fans or the slave labour they're supporting to make the jersey.
