Ireland have gotten off to a bright start in their opening Autumn International against South Africa today with the score at 14-0 at half-time.
While Ireland's performance is standing out, their jerseys certainly are not. Both fans at the match and TV viewers are complaining about a clash of colours between the two sides with Ireland sporting their new away jersey of grey with green trim while The Springboks are wearing their traditional dark green.
It seems that the IRFU are using the match as an opportunity to plug their new product but the similarities between the kits are causing much confusion.
