A new All Blacks jersey is coming

The All Blacks will be wearing a new jersey in 2011, the New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU) and its Principal Partner adidas have announced today.The new jersey, which has been designed and tested in conjunction with several senior All Blacks including captain Richie McCaw, will be unveiled for the first time when the All Blacks take the field against South Africa in their opening Investec Tri Nations match at Westpac Stadium, Wellington, on Saturday 30 July.The new strip will mark the biggest changes – in technology and design – to the iconic All Blacks jersey in more than a decade.The jersey design has been a well-guarded secret and all McCaw will say about the jersey is that "it is revolutionary and also respectful to the All Blacks' long and proud history."
