The Springboks limited edition jersey, to be worn in one of the Tests in November, is a SHOCKER, writes Mark Keohane.
Please, SA Rugby and ASICS, stop messing with the Springboks jersey.
Let the Green Machine patrol the pitches up north in formidable traditional Springboks green and a hint of gold.
I put the question to people on Twitter: Thoughts on the Bok jersey? The response was overwhelming. SA RUGBY & ASICS please take note and take notes.
The Springboks will wear this limited edition collab jersey during one of their end-of-year tour matches. 🇿🇦
The design is African inspired and created in collaboration with an African designer. pic.twitter.com/ZwZ9xu4q2O

Zwelithini Tunyiswa’s tweets were particularly hilarious and, for me, on point.
Here’s some of them:
I am not one to agree with Apartheid policies, but this shirt needs its own Homeland.
This shirt has more lines than the Department of Homeland Affairs
This shirt reminds me of old SABC test signal
That shirt is more chaotic than the police response during the KZN lootings.
The Australian version of these shirts was inspired by the “First Nations”. This one looks like it was inspired by the “Last Nations”.
