During the Sports Festival organized at the Rugby Citadel in Parma, on Tuesday 12 September, during the presentation and the photo of the new rose for the 2018-2019 season, the second official uniform of the Zebras Rugby Club was unveiled by Erreà Sport .
Confirmed as for the first, the same zebra pattern on both the front and back of the jacket. In the case of the second shirt, the black-white shades replace the multicolor fantasy, which is always entirely made of digital transfer printing.
As for the first big jersey is the care of all the details such as the black inserts placed along the sides and in the collar that shows inside and on the back the tricolor flag to celebrate the Italian franchise based in Parma. What's new instead of the first uniform is the detail of the black and white striped sock introduced last season. This element of the uniform serves to continue the strong link between the federal franchise that takes part in the Guinness PRO14 and the EPCR Challenge Cup from 2012 to its club history born in 1973 and took to the field 25 times until 1996 with the classic striped shirt white-black.
Even the away jersey is characterized by the special rubberized screen printed on the chest at the points of greatest exposure to facilitate the grip of the ball. Also protagonist for this jacket is the use of the technology applied to the uniform that provides under the neck, stopped by a special thick fabric, the presence of a special space dedicated to the gps detector to monitor the performance of the players in the race. Above this small pocket is the uppercase inscription "GRAZIE LUCA" in memory of Luca Sisti, the tragic video analyst who died tragically in the summer of 2015.
Specific for rugby and 100% Italian yarn, the "Ruck" fabric with which the new uniform is made stands out for its extraordinary resistance and hold, while ensuring exceptional elasticity and wearability.
The new away jersey will make its debut in the outdoor race of Newport in Wales against the Dragons on Saturday 22nd September at 18.15 Italian time. The race, valid for the fourth round of the Guinness PRO14, will be visible live in Italy on DAZN, at www.dazn.com on Smart TVs, PCs, smartphones, tablets and game consoles.
