Connacht Rugby in partnership with BLK Sport, have unveiled their new alternate jersey for the 2018/19 season. 

The new jersey is made with BLK’s exclusive Exotek fabric throughout the main body bound with reinforced cover stitch and lycra paneling. Exotek was created exclusively by BLK to enhance athlete performance, while maximising player maneuverability.

The jersey also features a unique silicon gel logo application and fluro green Connacht branding on the lower back.
