England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster requested that Canterbury’s inaugural England collection include an exclusive piece for England Senior Elite Players to represent the pride that comes from representing their country. 

To this end, the iconic purple presentation jacket, which was worn by England players during the 70s, 80s and early 90s, has returned.

The tradition of the presentation jacket informs the eye-catching new change kit, which is styled in regal purple with gold detailing, reinforcing England’s position as a member of rugby royalty.

The new England Home kit from Canterbury is available to buy now.
